Journalism These Days

I mentioned in my last post that I had embarked on some new creative projects. As it happens, I was welcomed on board as a freelancer at Eventing Nation, for which I was a writer in its earliest days, circa 2010.

Since then EN has developed into the go-to source for eventing news and event coverage, with significant international reach. EN is comprised of an amazing team of talented journalists and I’m pretty stoked to be a part of that team.

Since picking up with EN in December, I’ve been able to work on a number of special stories. Here are a few of my recent favorites:

Francis Whittington Clinic Report: Part 1, Part 2

Rider Profile, Julie Richards: Part 1, Part 2

Take No Liberties: Francis Whittington’s Keys to Success

Nantucket Summers: Meghan Perry’s Island Treasure

Runs on Stilts Stands Tall as Maryland’s Most Wanted Thoroughbred

Peregrine Farm: Breeding By the Book

These next three are difficult describe. They cover important issues and were challenging to produce, both in covering the delicate nature of the topics and in an attempt to do justice the strength of the people and horses involved. But I’m proud to have been able to tell these stories, which are ongoing.

Contaminated Horse Feed Causes Panic in Georgia

32 Horses in Andrew Palmer’s Barn Exposed to Monensin

I will also be producing monthly short stories for eCovertside, the magazine of mounted foxhunting, for which my good friend Katy Carter is an editor.

I’ll try to remember to include links to articles in the future. I have some seriously adorable photos from a recent shoot to share with you soon as well.

Don’t forget to follow Threlkeld Creative on Facebook, where I post links and updates as often as I remember. xo
