March 2015 - Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

I just want to say how very much I enjoyed Jill Beltran’s article in the December issue. She was so clear and understandable in her response to the reader’s question. I have read many dressage articles and it is a skill to be able to put the principles into layman’s terms. Please continue this welcome insight from Jill.

Thank you

Dear California Riding Magazine,

I was so tickled to see the cover story about Mickey Hayden in your February issue. I met Mickey way back in the early 80s, not too long after I moved to LA. He was at Will Rogers Equestrian Center then and I rode at his school. A great guy for sure and it was so nice to read what you wrote about him and his program.

When I lived in Orange County (Laguna Hills) I was one of those who again returned and rode at his barn. It was always a delight to see him during the years I was covering the jumping circuit and he offered so many insights for my stories.

Nice story.
