FGP in The Horseman’s Yankee Pedlar

by Fire Girl Jess on April 12, 2012

Just saw that The Horseman’s Yankee Pedlar ran another feature I wrote in their April issue, titled ‘Back in Action‘.  The article focuses on riders who have been injured – either in the saddle or out of it – and who have bounced back to be competitive at or beyond their earlier riding level.

The article gave me a chance to interview some fascinating individuals, including three young riders.  Youth riders hold a special spot in my heart as I taught a selection of young riders a long time ago.  Something about the passion that these kids bring to their riding… to them the horses truly are something out of a story book.

In other news, there have been some issues getting a Russian work visa but I’m trucking along and still trying to pin down a (delayed) departure date.  In the meantime I’m selling many of my worldly possessions, working out a packing list, and getting on the docket for vaccinations.  Any free time is spent out and about Austin, camera in tow.  I have a cowboy wedding to shoot this Saturday that I’m very much looking forward to.

Hey, it’s all an adventure.

Excellent piece, as usual. I’ve enjoyed reading your work in the Pedlar.
