Back To Riding

a monthly web column

From July 2011:

New Home, New Directions
The first nine installments appeared as a monthly commission for the US Eventing Association’s website. I wrote about my new horse and our goal of getting back into eventing. Then, a change in editorial emphasis left my column as a heap of electrons on the digital cutting room floor.

Meanwhile, I have grown intrigued by the challenges of documenting a process without a known endpoint. As an adventure in writing, I will continue by self, without benefit of market. In 22 years of equestrian journalism, writing has meant interviewing experts and arranging their opinions. It’s time to see if I have anything to say in my own right.

Phase I was the USEA.  Phase II as above.  Phase III came about when I realized that Back To Riding wasn’t really a blog.  It is a remnant of the days when magazines came out monthly & folks wrote columns for same.  But I like it the way it is.  So I started Rodney’s Saga for the daily bits.
