Riding's October Issue, Featuring Caballos Del Mar on the Cover, is now available!

I had a super busy month getting to lots of shows to pass out magazines. Plus I have been busy photographing. I spent a nice day with our cover barn Caballos Del Mar and a fun time at Murphy's Sporthorses photographing for the ISR Keuring. I have some really fun foal shots that you can see on our Facebook page. Having shed my title of publisher has freed me up to do the fun stuff of passing out magazines, finding good story ideas and helping get great photos for the magazine.

Next month you'll see some interesting photographs of Sarah Baldwin's three cloned foals from her Grand Prix horse Pacifico. You'll also see them on the 2014 California Horseman's Directory!

This month we feature western dressage, fall fashion and bring you some of our gift buying ideas. Watch for more gift suggestions in our November and December issues. Also, next month we feature eventing. Plus we will have Red Bucket Rescue as our cover story. As we head into the holiday season, be sure to put your favorite horse rescue on your gift giving list.

Please call, email or Facebook us with your story ideas and we look forward to bringing you the all the news in the California horse industry.

Happy Riding!
