By now you will have noticed Western Horse Review has gathered a sagacious and versatile group of bloggers for your daily reading and viewing pleasure, and I have to say, I’m happy to be a part of it.
For those of you who read the magazine, you’ve probably already seen the call for foal photos in the April issue. Photos and contests definitely encompass two of my favorite components of the new www.westernhorsereview.com and I’ll be running many of them straight through this blog, so check in often. In fact, watch for my inaugural “Brand It” contest early next week, when we’ll be giving away three fabulous pairs of Cruel Girl jeans. As well, I’ll be posting highlights of the ongoing Best Babies Photo Contest tomorrow.
A few more things you can expect on this growing site: in addition to an ever-expanding list of current events (please feel free to contribute), there are a couple of coming-soon’s: such as a live feed and video section (we\’ll be kicking this off with a live feed from the Canadian Cutting Horse Association Finals in Olds, Alberta. Watch for it beginning April 9), a list of sites we find useful and book and video reviews of the latest in all western riding genres.
I’ll post as often as I can. My life as a mother of two daughters who ride and compete, Western Horse Review editor, amateur competitor, acreage dweller and keeper of a menagerie of horses is sure to keep the posts popping. I’m also looking forward to having a number of guest bloggers who will post opinions, stories, news and even how-to pieces. Please feel free to work this blog with me. If you have anything western lifestyle related, photos of your latest horse show or event, announcements, blog discussion topics to suggest – seriously, almost anything goes – even, yes, recipes! Even, poetry! (keeping it clean and courteous, of course)
Don’t hesitate to e-mail me at [email protected] and I’ll get it on the blog.
As you may have already read in the magazine, we’re aiming high with this new site and we hope you’ll join us for the ride.
