Fans of WT: I would like to thank you for putting together such a fantastic magazine! I enjoyed every single article in the copy I just received, espe- cially the articles about Tory and Holly. Being a dis- abled rider myself I found their stories inspira- tional. I also love the conformation clinic in your magazine. Thank you and keep the great stories coming!

I was pleasantly surprised to see your beautiful article about Holly Bergay in the May/June issue. Having watched Holly and her pro- gression over the years, it is a real honor to see and read about her at a national level. She is quite an accom- plished young lady and rider. In our next newsletter of our local dressage

club we would like to feature a copy of your arti- cle. It would be wonderful to share her story with all of the members of the club who have watched her over the years and introduce her to the new members who might not know about her. Thank you for a great job!

Shopping in the U.S.: I would like to make a plea for your magazine to do something on shopping in the U.S. for Warmbloods rather than reinforcing the assumption that every American buyer seems to feel the best can only be found in Europe. In fact, I sell more than half my in Utero and foals to buyers outside the U.S. and many back to the same dealers or breeders in Europe that people flock there to buy from. I do wish that the press and the public would at least investigate what is bred and born here in the U.S. before writing one more article about horse shopping in Europe.

In response to this letter, we believe most Warmblood owners have purchased horses that have not been imported while recognizing that there are plenty of sport horses that have been

imported. Since the goal of our magazine is to cover what’s happening in the Warmblood industry we can’t ignore that importing and shopping overseas is one way to purchase a horse. WT fully supports our breeders and will cover great stories of great horses regardless of whether the horse is American bred or imported. Recently a friend flew to Florida to horse shop for her next dressage horse with a budget of around $40K after exhausting her search locally. Florida is known for being able to see a lot of sale horses in a matter of a few days. Almost every horse that was advertised which she called on was sold! These were horses in training between the ages of 5 and 9 around 16 hands. People are obviously buying horses that are here. It also demonstrates that the demand for horses in this age and price range is still amazingly high despite our economy. Shopping for your next dream Warmblood can be challenging in this coun- try due to its sheer size, and I welcome stories from our readers as to how they found their perfect mount in America. This could prove to be an interesting future article in WT.
