Letters toWT

Fans of WT

I am thrilled to find a magazine dedicated to Warm- bloods of all kinds. We are somewhat isolated here in northeastern Nevada and are starved for information and contacts. The articles and advertisements provide both! I particularly enjoyed reading the conformation column by Hilda Gurney. Your staff is doing us a great service. Keep up the good work!

When my girlfriend loaned me her copy of issue number two of Warmbloods Today, I was surprised to find a magazine full of interesting stories like yours. Having 13 Andalusians on my farm, first I read Dominique Barbier’s viewpoint regarding Warmbloods and Lusitanos, which I absolutely loved. Then I found myself picking up the magazine again and again until I read every article. What a great magazine! It’s so nice to read something that is uplifting and inspirational. In fact, I haven’t bought a horse magazine subscription in years until now. Keep up the nice work!

Your magazine is exceptional and far exceeded my hopes. I was extremely pleased to see a harness horse prominently displayed on your first cover! I have an idea: a monthly article called “Spotlight

on the Past.” This would include well-known horses and riders from years ago. Those we can remember easily, perhaps some who left us too early like Amanda Pirie-Warrington in the early ‘90s. Dressage leaders, you know, the kind we still refer to in their books. Back in the

12 September/October 2009

L

early ‘70s there was a magazine called Dressage and CT (combined training). It was not very thick, but it was exquisite in its content. I managed to salvage some of them through numerous moves. They are treasures. It would be nice if you could entertain a few blasts from the past, such as Col. Bengt Lundquist as an example. In this economy I hope your magazine survives and

thrives. Your commitment and work ethic put into this publication is obvious and much encouraged.

Mary, you’re not the first person to suggest the idea of a column about important horses or people from the past. Starting this issue, we are introducing a new column called “Hack Down Memory Lane,” where someone shares a bird’s eye view of their experiences with a particular legendary horse or figurehead in our industry. We hope you enjoy Dr. Starr’s story on page 52. —Staff at WT

Horses needed for WEG

It’s wonderful that you recently featured Holly Bergay and her mares, and now me and Mibis in this issue of WT ! Please pass on this information to your readers about the support other para-equestrians need for trained horses. As a para-equestrian, I am thrilled that the up-

coming 2010 World Equestrian Games will be held here in the United States [Lexington, KY]. Speaking from experience, it is very difficult and very expensive to travel around the world with your horse! Unfortunately, many para-equestrians coming to the U.S. to compete in next year’s WEG are faced with the lack of funds to ship their own horses to our country. Another option for them is to lease or borrow a horse already here in America. Lloyd Landkamper, who is the director of Dressage

and Para-Dressage at the WEG, is creating a database of possible horse owners who have competitive horses that might be available for WEG riders to borrow or lease for the competition. The nations needing horses would access the database and contact the owners about their horses. For further information about leasing or loaning a

horse, please contact Lloyd at LLandkamer@aol.com or Hope Hand at wheeler966@aol.com. I hope you’ll consider making a horse available!
