ADOPT ME!
Princessa is a 6 yr old Quarter Horse cross mare up for adoption from FalconRidge Equine Rescue in Valley Center. She has had 60 days of professional training and is currently with trainer Mike Pellkofer in Valley Center, who said she is doing awesome and is a wonderful ride. She stands 14.3 hands high and was previously rescued by the San Diego Humane Society last year. Healthy and sound and up to date on vaccinations. Princessa is a darling mare!
Adoption fee is $500. Contact Nicki at 760-742-0285. www.falconridgerescue.org

We are excited to bring you this issue featuring spring fashions, eventing and equine insurance. Thanks to Steve Boyer for our great photo spread from the Area VI’s Trifecta weekend and don’t miss the feature on local star eventer Hawley Bennett-Awad. Young rider and writer Sydney Callaway pulled together a terrific fashion piece with input from Mackenzie Drazan, Saree Kayne, Karl Cook and Ecole Lathrop, and top insurance agents Donna Chopp Parker, Marnye Langer and Holly Lopes clarify some common misunderstandings about horse-related insurance. We really appreciate everybody’s input!
It was great to see everyone at Horse Expo Pomona and thanks to everyone who stopped by to tell us how much they love California Riding Magazine. I will be attending the AIG $1 Million Grand Prix at HITS this month. This circuit is as busy as ever. I also will be at the 2015 Longines World Cup Jumping Finals and the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Finals in Las Vegas next month. I am super excited for that amazing event to be back in our area. We will also have time to attend the Ma’Ceo at the South Point the Sunday before.
I’m having fun bringing along my foster horse Joey aka Marquis from FalconRidge. He has a funny personality and is learning to have fun in the round pen and under saddle. You can check his progress on my Facebook page. Please keep sending us your story ideas. Julie Young from Silver Bay Stables gave me a great story idea about a young vaulter. We hope to bring that to you soon.
Happy Riding!
