Congratulations to the winner of the first ever TTW Giveaway. One of our facebook fans (now at 125 and counting!), Beth Stelzleni, of S-Squared Eventing at Wishing Tree Farm, is the big winner of a Sidelines Magazine subscription! Congrats Beth, and thank you for liking the blog!
Beth says she never wins anything (though her show record speaks to the contrary), so I'm very happy she won our giveaway! Beth is originally from Florida, and is now an eventing and dressage trainer based out of Athens, Georgia. Beth has been riding for over twenty years. She says this makes her sound old, but I've been riding even longer, and I still think of myself as a kid (with a law degree. . . how did that happen?) so I don't think twenty years of riding amounts to old age at all. She started out in hunter world (I knew I liked her) and now competes in eventing, dressage, and even ventures back over to H/J land to compete in the jumper ring as well. She enjoys teaching students in all of these disciplines. . . so if you're in the Georgia area and in need of a good coach, maybe you can look Beth up!
Beth, incidentally, has also put in a specific request for an Equestrian Heartthrob of the Robert Redford variety, and I must say that man has classic good looks that never go out of style, so I am more than happy to oblige.
Here you go, Beth! How did I do?
Thank you all for liking TTW on facebook and for participating in the giveaway. Hopefully there will be many more where that came from!
