Ride and Tie Essay – ONLINE!
|March 20, 2014||Posted by Melinda under Ride and Tie, Uncategorized|
Out of courtesy for my essay being chosen for publication in the Ride and Tie newsletter I did not republish it here. The article published in the Oct 2013 edition, but the pdf of the issue didn’t come online until the last couple of days.
My article is on pages 8-9. It’s the first time (if you don’t count my “why I want to go to college/why I want to be a vet” essays) that I’ve ever earned money for something I wrote. I adore writing and especially writing about topics that help educate people into being able to make their own educated decisions, rather then me telling them exactly what to do. Maybe one day when I’m Melinda Faubel, DVM I can make a couple bucks here and there writing these sorts of things.
Even if you suffered through my heat conditioning blog posts last summer, you might want to give the article a read through – I took 4 or 5 wordy posts, condensed it down to a 1000 words of essential information. I took out much of the specific “how to’s” and what I did with Farley so if you are interested in that information, do a search on the blog.
(Did anyone else notice that Tess managed to photobomb my article? I swear it was completely by accident. They asked me for several pictures and they chose which ones they wanted to use – they cropped some and left others full size. They cropped the one of me and my partner at our ride and tie with her horse….but Tess got a full sized image. LOL. That dog cracks me up…..)
They didn’t publish the reference that were submitted as part of the requirements for the essay, so here they are if you are interested:
