December 2016 - Whoa!

Thirty years of publishing California Riding Magazine — what a ride!

by Cheryl Erpelding

In 1983, the loss of my first husband to a drunk driver sent me from Florida back to California to decide what to do with the rest of my life. I had a little bit of life insurance money and went to the La Jolla Academy of Advertising Arts to get training in graphic design and advertising. I had also bought my first horse, an off-the-track Thoroughbred named Trader Jack, that I had in training with Michele Thornton’s North County Riding Center in Del Mar.

Welcome to our fourth annual Parade of Champions edition.

December 2016 - Writing The Perfect Horse

A conversation with author Elizabeth Letts.

by Nan Meek

The Perfect Horse: The Daring U.S. Mission to Rescue the Priceless Stallions Kidnapped by the Nazis, captured my attention the moment I heard about it. I’d read author Elizabeth Letts’ previous book, the New York Times bestseller The Eighty-Dollar Champion: Snowman, The Horse That Inspired a Nation, and been impressed by her research and storytelling skills. I couldn’t wait to read The Perfect Horse, and after reading it, I couldn’t wait to talk to Elizabeth Letts.
