Riding's July issue ships tomorrow!

We wish to thank our cover sponsor Irene Valenti. Our cover sponsors make it possible for us to bring you more monthly California news than any other publication. We hope you enjoy Irene's interview where she talks about her successful formula for both her matchmaking business and her equestrian facility.

If you've seen the Discovery Channel's Out of the Wild: The Alaska Experiment, then you might remember horse trainer Jake Nodar. He moved from Florida to California last year. We have a great Horse People focus on him in this issue.

We also have a preview of the North American Junior/Young Rider Championships and some articles to get you ready for the upcoming Olympic Games in London.

We hope you enjoy this issue! As always, please let us know if you have any article ideas or would like to run an ad with us.
