Hello dear readers! I know I owe you all a Tucker update, but will save that for another post. Suffice it to say I’ve made some big changes lately, one of which has allowed me the freedom to do a lot more writing for Sidelines Magazine . In this month’s issue, I wrote a really fun article about Lucy Matz, daughter of Olympian show jumper and Triple Crown trainer Michael Matz. By the way, have you subscribed to Sidelines yet? No? Well, you should — I love it, and I’m not just saying that because my name is lucky enough to grace its pages these days. Seriously, I keep mine with me all the time so I can read whenever I have a minute, and I end up reading it cover-to-cover every month. If you don’t have a subscription yet though, you are in luck, because you can read my article about Lucy for free here . Check it out! I had so much fun researching and writing this article. Lucy is incredibly sweet and, like her dad, seriously humble about her success and her quasi-celebrity status. As for her pony jumper Wiseguy, well, I think you know how Tucker and I both feel about adorable ponies. He’s a Connemara imported from Ireland, and he is pretty much the cutest guy ever: Now put this pony in the Dixon Oval at Devon (you all know I think it’s the most magical place on earth), making the pony jumpers look just like a mini-grand prix, and I am straight up in love . And Lucy is a great little rider. She is without a doubt one to watch as she moves up to the Junior Jumpers this year.
Editor’s Note: Pony riders from all across the country have descended on the Kentucky Horse Park for 2012 Pony Finals. Sidelines Magazine has some “on the scene” pony kids who are reporting about all of the events at the exciting show, while photographer Emily Allongo takes great photos for us! Our Pony Tails “reporter kids” are going by the initials P.
