Founders's Notes


Sapphire is a 17 year old paint mare up for adoption at FalconRidge Equine Rescue in San Diego County's Valley Center.

Sapphire is a very pretty and intelligent mare. Super super smart! Healthy and sound. Needs an experienced, confident and assertive rider. Should be a great gaming or performance horse for the right person, or a nice companion horse or pet. Adoption fee is $500.

Change is inevitable and we had a big change here at Riding's Publications. I sold my publishing company to MPM Publications, which owns other magazines here in California and in Texas. This is a good change for me for many reasons, including relieving some stress which is not good for anyone. I remain on as Sales Manager for California Riding Magazine and California Horseman's Directory. Doing sales and marketing is what I love, so I'm happy about that. The unfortunate part of the acquisition is our beloved Kathy "Mimie" Eble's position as General Manager was cut. So, if you need an amazing person with an abundance of talents on your team, please call or e-mail me!

All of our other staff members remain on the team and are dedicated to continuing to bring you issue after issue with our usual page after page of great reading! Please enjoy this issue and be sure to send us your story ideas!

Happy Riding!
