September 2018 - Founder's Notes

Our annual September issue focus on “education” winds up being a broad topic. This year, we’ve covered everything from a recent dressage clinic with George Williams and an upcoming session with Elke Potucek-Puscha to an update on Cal Poly San Luis Obispo’s ongoing expansion of its equestrian center and the remarkable growth of the Interscholastic Equestrian Association competition in the West.

I guess it’s to be expected that education is broadly defined in an equestrian context because horses facilitate so many different types of learning and enlightenment for us humans.

We are excited about the World Equestrian Games starting Sept. 11. An update to our WEG preview article arrived as the presses rolled: United States Equestrian Federation members receive a 50% discount on FEI.TV’s annual pass, including the WEG Pass, bringing the price down to $29.99. The streaming service is a terrific way to watch all major equestrian competition and this is an awesome price and a great incentive to join USEF if you’re not a member already.  WEG content will include live action, replays and archived material. Coverage is also expected on NBC and affiliates, but it will likely not be anywhere near as extensive.

Eventing and fall fashion & apparel are the special focuses of our October issue, plus the usual mix of features and news from the hunter/jumper, eventing and dressage worlds. October will also include our first of three Gift Guides to get you set for the holiday shopping season!

Given that fire season seemed to start even earlier this year, here’s hoping it will end earlier, too. Our continued thoughts to all who have been affected by these seemingly endless fires.

Letter to the Editor


Enterprise Farms has been grateful for your recommendation of our riding school and has worked very hard to retain your trust and support.  However, until the recent (June) article which appeared highlighting our programs, we had no idea how many people read and value your publication!

We have been overwhelmed with positive comments from current and previous students and from equestrians  as well as new students and campers who recognize the value of sound riding basics and are seeking a location to develop them..

We will continue to maintain  our high standards as a U.S. Pony Club Riding Center as well as a riding  school and horse  camp  and thank you again for your recognition and support!
