Editor-in-Chief of The Horse

Stephanie has worked in six roles at The Horse since 1999. During that time she has documented the U.S. emergence of West Nile virus, told the stories of horse owners impacted by Hurricane Katrina, detailed the plight of working donkeys and horses in Africa, and covered just about every horse health topic imaginable.

A U.S. Pony Clubs (USPC) graduate and Academy of Achievement inductee and former 4-H member, Stephanie has been riding since early childhood and enjoys dressage and eventing. She and her current horse, off-track Thoroughbred It Happened Again (“Happy”), dabble in those disciplines and also enjoy trail rides and hunter paces in and around Lexington, Kentucky, where The Horse is based.

Stephanie holds a B.A. in Journalism and Equestrian Studies from Averett University in Danville, Virginia. Besides riding Happy, she enjoys photography, cooking, cycling, swimming, and traveling in her free time.
