I just wanted to write and tell you how much I love Warmbloods Today magazine. It’s fresh, different, and the articles cover topics you don’t often see in other magazines. I have to admit I subscribe to a number of equine magazines, including Equus, Horse Illustrated,

Horse & Rider, Dressage Today, Chronicle of the Horse,

The Horse, and others, and I notice that they will cover the same topics sometimes in the same months...it’s almost comical. I hope that WT can find and keep its audience,

Letters toWT

since I so enjoy getting it and read every issue cover to cover, something that doesn’t happen often. I ride dressage—I own an aged Quarter Horse gelding who’s now a lesson horse for young dressage rider wannabes, and a draft cross who’s not a Warmblood but who moves like one and thinks he is one. Thanks again for a great publication.

Happy New Year! My magazines came in the mail so I have abandoned all the house work, dinner was take out, and I am in heaven. What a great magazine! Real life, normal people, great articles. I receive two copies of each edition and place them at the barn hoping Warmbloods Today receives some more well deserved subscriptions. Thank you from one very happy reader.

As the author of this particular story, I would like to

apologize for my selection of words. When Athene said she wanted to buy a “real horse,” she in no way wanted to imply that rescue horses are less than purchased ones. There are plenty of rescue horses who go on to be successful performance horses, but she was finally in a financial position for the first time in her life to purchase a well-trained sport horse (in this case a Lusitano) specifically bred for the sport of dressage. It was a poor choice of words, and I can speak for Athene and myself that we in no way meant to offend anyone involved in the admirable vocation of rescuing and rehabilitating these marvelous animals.

Thank you to you and Amber Heintzberger for the wonderful article about the Danish Warmblood in your January/February issue! Amber was able to communicate so wonderfully Isabelle’s deep affection for her horse Dream-Light as well as her deep admiration for her trainer Lars Petersen. It is a wonderful article and thank you for including us!

Breed Snobbery?

I was taken aback (to put it mildly) when I read the statement made by Athene von Hirschberg in your January/February 2010 issue in the story “From Gavel to Greatness.” She said she wanted to buy a “real horse,” rather than the rescue Thoroughbreds she’d been riding her entire life. If you’re going to promote this kind of snobbery, don’t expect me to subscribe. Would you do me a favor and ask Ms. von

Hirschberg to call my vet, farrier, and feed store to tell them the horses I’ve been retraining, competing
