We are four friends who loves the allround events of western riding. We all show at different levels and this is our greatest hobby. As a result of our passion for this sport we have developed a web magazine for riders showing in these events. We have named it “My Western Pleasure” since this is something that we do on our spare time.
Vision: Providing you with information and knowledge about showing horses in the allround events of western riding. Information will be presented in articles with the purpose to inspire and discuss important matters of the sport.
We hope that our articles can give you perspective and help you think about how we can develop the sport and eventually get more exhibitors at our horse shows.
