A message from the Editor

As we welcome in 2022, Equestrian Living is celebrating the magazine’s 10th anniversary. It is a milestone worth noting amidst the sentiment that “print is dead.” We would like to thank our readers, friends, and the team that creates EQLiving for making this possible.

To reminisce and call to mind the scope of adventures and occasional madcap mishaps in our pursuit of engaging features seems to me a well-earned indulgence. I discovered early on that having a sense of humor is an asset at Equestrian Living. It comes in handy in myriad scenarios and has saved me on more than one occasion. One for the EQ annals was my Texas initiation into fire ants. Envision the city slicker who finds herself atop an ant mound and provoking the ire of its inhabitants while stopping to capture that “perfect shot.” 

I consider it a privilege to have been with the magazine since its launch as Equestrian Quarterly in 2012 and to work alongside the publisher and a team of individuals who have been integral to its success. Throughout the years, we have remained anchored in a commitment to our readers and advertisers to showcase the best of equestrian life on the pages of Equestrian Living, the EQLiving.com website, and across our social media platforms.

Over the course of 10 years, we’ve traveled extensively—here and abroad—to attend high-profile events and meet with equestrians of all disciplines and levels of accomplishment at their homes and barns. We’ve featured junior riders now competing at international CSI 5* events. We’ve met young professional riders who currently manage their own training barns and have had children who are already winning ribbons in the pony classes. And, at the pinnacle, we’ve had the privilege of sitting down with numerous Olympians. In the next 10 years, we will continue in our mission to produce unique and memorable content that resonates with our readers.
