Youth Profile – Emma DeJong

Young rider Emma DeJong from Bargersville, Indiana caught the horse bug early. Her mother, Amanda Cottingham-Johnson recalls, “When she was four years old, she told me horses were going to be her thing and that was it. Nobody in our family rides, so this was all on her own.

The Art of Losing

Ina Ginsberg – Never Sitting Still

Ina Ginsberg was nine years old when she first sat in a saddle at a summer camp. Prior to that, the only animal experience she had growing up in Massachusetts was caring for the two goldfish she kept outside as pets. “I never did figure out what happened to them during the winter,” she jokes.

If you were to ask Bill Baskin what brought him and his wife Susan together, his answer might just be cows.

The frequency of these tests brought her to visit Baskin’s farm several times a week. Inevitably, working so close together on numerous separate occasions developed a friendship between the two which eventually developed into something more. “We were friends way before we were married, and we still are; that’s the amazing part,” Blackburn notes.

The Finer Points of the Posting Trot

The posting trot is an integral part of any English riding discipline from Hunter/Jumper to Equitation to Hunter Under Saddle. When it’s done well, the posting trot looks fluid and easy as the riders’ graceful movement complements the long, floating strides beneath them.
