About a month ago, I was contacted by someone from the Chronicle of the Horse asking if I would like to be interviewed for their Amateurs Like Us series. Megan had found my blog, and asked her editor if she thought it would good be a good fit. Turns out, they did and I sent a ton of info over!
The article posted today – Amateurs Like Us: Lauren Mauldin Takes On Texas and I’m super excited. With an audience as big as COTH, you never know how something is going to go over. I spent a really long time agonizing over the questions and hoping I didn’t sound stupid, ha.
Now that it’s out, I’m really happy. I don’t think I sound stupid, and the star of the article is really Simon. That’s how it should be, because he’s totally a lot cooler than I am. 🙂
Long time readers will notice that it says I have been showing 2’6″ – 2’9″, which is my move up division(s) instead of my current ones (hopefully moving up sooner rather than later). Also, I really do want to do the “big” stuff one day. I would be perfectly happy staying local and showing, because for a long time even that didn’t seen attainable… but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to go to the big circuits like Colorado and WEF.
Who knows, maybe one day. Maybe not.
Either way, I’m really proud of this blog and really thankful for all the support. I doubt I’ll ever be featured in the Chronicle for my riding abilities, so it was just super awesome to have this to share my beloved little Thoroughbred with the world.
Thank you to Megan and Chronicle of the Horse for this amazing opportunity!
