My spurs are still jingling from attending the American Horse Publications Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico! Over the course of three days, I took a roping lesson (and roped my own face), found a pair of custom spurs with my name on them, and spent time learning from and networking with incredible equine creatives! Here's a recap from the High Desert Media Roundup featuring a mini-movie of my adventures. Go behind the scenes with me!
Mini-Movie: AHP High Desert Media Roundup
The Annual American Horse Publications Equine Media Conference happened in Albuquerque, New Mexico this year. It was so exciting to see many of my virtual equine friends in person!
A Spur Jingling Discovery! Custom Spurs.
When you’ve dreamed of having custom spurs since you were a little cowgirl then you walk into a destination on the American Horse Publications Equine Enchantment conference tour and see them there without actually having ordered them. Thank you, Mortenson Silver & Saddles!
I Co-Hosted an Equine Author Meet-up Session
It was such an honor to co-host an Equine Book Author Meet-up with Heather Wallace of The Timid Rider. We had a terrific turnout. Look at all the horse book authors at this year’s American Horse Publications conference! 📚🐴❤️ I love it when #authorsunite.
Meeting In the Reins Series Readers!
I loved meeting In the Reins readers during the AHP Conference. I met so many awesome horse enthusiasts. It was fun to chat with and sign books for readers. I had copies of In The Reins, Cowboy Away & Show Pen Promise available right there and I loved that some readers brought their own copy for a signature!
