By Jan Westmark-Allan The March issue of Sidelines Magazine – featuring Olympic star Reed Kessler! Photo by Jack Mancini The March issue of Sidelines has hit the stands – or at least the Internet (but will be in your mailboxes soon!)

I ran into Reed’s mom at the show, standing on the side of the ring watching Reed show, while holding cute Carly in her arms.

The Bottom Line: By Jan Westmark-Allan I love the saying, “Horse people love dogs! Dogs love horse people!” Horses and dogs do go hand-in-hand, which is why Sidelines is a big supporter of both horse and dog rescues. I have always thought that if I worked at a dog rescue, I would probably end
