Equestrian Professional Member Spotlight - Mark Farndale of Farndale StablesEquestrian Professional Member Spotlight - Mark Farndale of Farndale Stables
Pam Saul
When you say Burbank California to most people, their first thoughts are of Hollywood and the home of mega-entertainment companies such as Disney and Warner Bros. What I also found nestled in the city is a dazzling equestrian facility by the name of the Los Angeles Equestrian Center, home of Mark Farndale and Farndale Stables. Mark took time out of his busy schedule to fill me in how he came to this place in his life. . . . More

The only way to find Stacy sitting still is to catch her when she's traveling from her home base of Gainesville, Virginia to an event or for training along the East Coast. I was lucky enough to do so this week. . . . More

Equestrian Professional Member Spotlight - Sue Norman of Nehalem Valley ArabiansEquestrian Professional Member Spotlight - Sue Norman of Nehalem Valley Arabians
Pam Saul
Usually, when I talk to one of our members about doing a Spotlight article, they are just climbing off a horse. But not Sue Norman -- she had just finished saving a life! That's because Sue is a full-time Paramedic for the 911 system in Washington County, a suburb of Portland, Oregon. Sue had completed a 6-day shift, including the Memorial Day weekend, which she commented on as being, "Very busy." Sue is currently in the process of constructing her dream barn on her Nehalem Valley Arabian farm with her husband, Max and they also have the local feed store, Jewell Farm Supply on their farm. So how in the world did she get to this point in her life? . . . More

Equestrian Professional Member Spotlight - Yasmin Emery-Brownlie of Blue Water FarmsEquestrian Professional Member Spotlight - Yasmin Emery-Brownlie of Blue Water Farms
Pam Saul
Recently, I was able to bridge the time zone divide and talked with Yasmin Emery-Brownlie of Rescue, California, northeast of Sacramento. Yasmin recently opened a new Hunter/Jumper full service training and sales facility at her Blue Water Farms. She is also a USHJA Certified Trainer and..oh yeah…an Emergency Medicine physician. To hear her tell the story, "I work as an Emergency Medicine physician so that I can afford to be with the horses!" So what path led Yasmin to all her accomplishments? . . . More
