I was assigned to deliver the first-in-a-series piece about the history of domestic-bred Arabian horses in the United States. Arabian Horse Life magazine editor Stephanie Ruff wanted readers to learn about how and when the Arabian horse first arrived in America, and who were the people most instrumental in them flourishing here.

At the deadline, I delivered the fact-checked, 3400-word copy, along with several hi-res images provided by interviewees, each with the needed release forms, and photo credit text. I suggested the “further reading” section for people who wanted to learn more about specific history, pedigrees or where the Arabian horse descendants in this piece are found today.
