I was assigned by Modern Arabian Horse editor Susan Bavaria to cover the 2015 Canadian National Arabian & Half Arabian Championship Show on-site in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. She asked me for a first-person account as a competitor and to be on-scene storyteller using vignettes about other competitor experiences with some scene-setting background about the facility and location to round out the piece.
At the deadline, I delivered the 5000-word fact-checked copy. I also proofread layouts to ensure the photos chosen from the official show photographer shots were properly credited for the piece.

Tagged “The Official Voice of the Arabian Horse Industry,” its goal was to share the passion of Arabian horse with everyone. Modern Arabian Horse emphasized the pride and value of Arabian horse ownership, one that you will enjoy forever. Its circulation was 10,000 to 20,000.
