The April 2014 Paint Horse Journal is hitting mailboxes, and it’s full of great articles. If you are a subscriber, let us know how we’re doing by emailing the staff.
If you don’t subscribe to the Journal yet, you are missing out!
With a ton of buzz generated about The Game Plan on social media, at the 2014 Convention and on YouTube, it’s a series to read whether you’re riding in APHA, open or other breed shows. In April, you’ll get the details of excelling in hunter under saddle from both a judge and trainer’s perspective. Hint: there is more than you might think to this foundation class.
We also talked to Tara Vorhes about her experience riding her Paint Horses in polo competition. You might think it’s a sport dominated by rangy Thoroughbreds that can speed across the field, but Tara’s Paints have some surprising advantages. She and Skips Little Cowgirl made a stunning cover image as well!
Everyone knows Paints do it best, and we are thrilled to highlight the Top 20 lists and the 2013 Performance Review in this issue. From the Youth Rookie of the Year all the way to the Masters Amateur (who also took home a sweet Hart Trailer), these horses and riders aren’t to be underestimated.
And if you were featured in the issue and want extra copies to share with family, friends and trainers, call (817) 222-6430 to order more issues.
Every month, the Journal staff chooses one article to post online for FREE to everyone.This month, we chose to feature “Make it Pay.” Showing horses as a Youth is expensive, but this article gives you ideas on ways to make showing pay you back through scholarships, Breeders’ Trust and even tips to get organized for the scholarship hunt.
