by Lisa Molloy Since moving from Kentucky to Virginia Beach in July, I hit the ground running and have not stopped. Working in partnership with highly respected charities ReRun and Akindale Thoroughbred Rescue and with an open door policy for The Exceller Fund, I opened a new facility close to the Virginia/North Carolina state line that is a showcase for retired Thoroughbreds looking for second careers and new lives away from the track, all made available by nationally recognized charities

Congratulations to the winner of the first ever TTW Giveaway. One of our facebook fans (now at 125 and counting!), Beth Stelzleni, of S-Squared Eventing at Wishing Tree Farm , is the big winner of a Sidelines Magazine subscription! Congrats Beth, and thank you for liking the blog! Beth says she never wins anything (though her show record speaks to the contrary), so I’m very happy she won our giveaway! Beth is originally from Florida, and is now an eventing and dressage trainer based out of Athens, Georgia. Beth has been riding for over twenty years. She says this makes her sound old, but I’ve been riding even longer, and I still think of myself as a kid (with a law degree. . . how did that happen?) so I don’t think twenty years of riding amounts to old age at all. She started out in hunter world (I knew I liked her) and now competes in eventing, dressage, and even ventures back over to H/J land to compete in the jumper ring as well. She enjoys teaching students in all of these disciplines. . . so if you’re in the Georgia area and in need of a good coach, maybe you can look Beth up! Beth, incidentally, has also put in a specific request for an Equestrian Heartthrob of the Robert Redford variety, and I must say that man has classic good looks that never go out of style, so I am more than happy to oblige

Tucker fans, I have an exciting announcement! Sidelines has generously agreed to let me give away a year’s subscription to the magazine to one of my blog readers. How cool is that?! The May 2012 Issue Entering the contest is easy — all you have to do is like Tucker the Wunderkind on facebook between now and May 15th. If you’re already following Tucker on facebook, good news — you’re already eligible to win! (And, you’re already enjoying all the hilarious stuff I find for your newsfeeds. My apologies in advance if I ever make you spit coffee onto your monitors.) And just in case you need another incentive to like Tucker the Wunderkind on facebook, Equestrian Ryan Reynolds and Equestrian Johnny Depp are there. On May 15th, I will pick one lucky reader at random and announce it on Tucker’s facebook wall. Why May 15th, you ask? Well… that’s the day that the new issue of Sidelines, featuring a one-page article about yours truly and the gorgeous Wunderkind, will be hitting the stands. (It’s okay if I giggle like a schoolgirl whenever I think about that, right?) What are you waiting for? Pull that smartphone out of the pocket of your breeches, wait until your boss isn’t looking and log on, find an empty computer at school, borrow an ipad from the guy next to you on the train (hey, maybe he’s cute)… you get the idea. Good luck!
