From The Magazine: Living Legend, Torrance Watkins

Even as she entered the arena to perform a test that would help the U.S. team earn the gold medal at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, Torrance Watkins knew she’d blown it.

From The Magazine: Eventing As A Business Versus A Sport

Up until very recently I was immersed full time in the professional eventing world for nearly 14 years under a number of different people or working for myself, out of a number of different locations. I've been a working student, a barn manager, a horse camp counselor, taught in a beginner lesson program, a groom, an assistant trainer and, most recently, run my own full-blown eventing business. I've ridden to the CIC*** level on two different horses and been named to the U.S. Equestrian Federation Developing Riders Lists three times.

From The Magazine: A Dishonest Deal: Price Padding, Hidden Commissions And Dual Agency

Jane* will never forget finding out what the actual price tag was on her favorite amateur horse. She’d flown to the Midwest to try a plain bay 11-year-old.

“He was an adequate mover, but he jumped just the way I rode. It was like magic, me getting on him,” Jane said. “I talked to my trainer in the aisle after I tried him and said, ‘He’s 11. He’s never shown on the East Coast. He’s not pretty. $50,000 seems like a lot,’ since that was the top end of my budget.

“He told me, ‘I’ve already tried to get the price down, and they’re firm at $50,000.’ ”
