By Jan Westmark-Allan Arabian Nights, a dinner theater attraction in Orlando, Florida, really is a magical place. I had an amazing time with my family when we took part in the “Performer For A Day” experience there – and I am excited that three Sidelines Magazine friends will now get to do the same thing.

Send in a photo of your horse in a costume (you can be in a costume too)! My daughter, Abby, and I took part in the Arabian Nights “Performer For A Day” experience at the Arabian Nights Dinner Show Attraction in Orlando, Florida not long ago – and we had the time of our lives!! And now you can too! Starting in a few days, we will have a Sidelines Magazine – Arabian Nights “Performer For A Day” contest where three people will win the chance to do what we did – take part in the show. In order to enter you will have to send in a photo of your horse in a COSTUME!! (you can be in costume too, but you don’t have to be – but your horse does!) When you take part in the show at Arabian Nights, they will dress you in a great costume – so the theme of our contest is your horse wearing a costume.
Hi Everyone – Sidelines is pleased to welcome Rachel Cline as our summer intern! Rachel lives in Virginia, but attends college at SMU – and here is her story she wrote for the June issue of Sidelines. Welcome Rachel – it’s going to be a great summer!! – Jan Westmark-Allan SMU Campus By Rachel Cline During my first visit to Southern Methodist University, I had an overwhelming sense of being home
By Jan Westmark-Allan Brianne Goutal became a household name in equestrian homes in 2005 when Animal Planet aired the six-part television show about the Big Equitation Finals called “Horse Power: Road to the Maclay.” It was wonderful reality television and my daughter Abby and I were glued to the TV. Young riders today still watch it on DVD and dream of being like Brianne and the other riders featured on the show. Brianne’s junior years are behind her and she is now an accomplished grand prix show jumper and I am thrilled to welcome her to our Sidelines family.
Happy Mother’s Day! Sidelines contributing writer Sydney Masters-Durieux caught up with a variety of riders to find out the “Best Advice Their Mom’s Ever Gave Them” and we are pleased to share their answers.
