I see this print everyday – multiple times a day, even. It hangs on the wall above the printer in the Quarter Horse News (QHN) office in Fort Worth, Texas. As QHN Art Director, I print a lot. But even though I see “Slicker Reunion” so often, I never tire of it. I always see something in it I didn’t see the day before.
The National Reined Cow Horse Association Celebration of Champions kicked off today in Fort Worth, Texas, with the Peptoboonsmal Cow Horse Classic Derby, and I wanted to share with you my experience at a nearby restaurant called Lucile’s Stateside Bistro.
The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Winter Meeting kicks off tomorrow and after finding out the meeting was at the Sheraton Fort Worth Downtown Hotel, I was excited I’d be able to tell you about a casual and historic tavern .2 miles away.
It’s a busy season here at the Cowboy Publishing Group offices in Fort Worth, Texas. At Quarter Horse News we’re busy with Futurity season coverage and year-end marketing pushes. It’s been more than a few weeks since I’ve been able to continue my year-long journey through the art here in the office, but something lovely came to me a few weeks and I thought I’d share.
There is a framed poster in the Cowboy Publishing Group office kitchen. This poster has fascinated me from the first moment I saw it. First, it is big! Second, its detail is on a level that can only be described as mind melting, but in a good way. The poster, “Evolution of the Cowboy”, is a second edition of a rodeo poster Uruguayan-born artist Joseph Jacinto “Jo” Mora illustrated for the California Rodeo Salinas in 1933.
I'm currently in Nampa, Idaho, for the Idaho Cutting Horse Association (ICHA) Futurity and Aged Event. I love to experience local restaurants while traveling, so I decided to hit up a Nampa favorite, the American restaurant Brick 29 Bistro.
I recently had the pleasure of attending a preview party for the new Veryl Goodnight exhibit at the National Cowgirl Museum & Hall-of-Fame. Goodnight will be inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall-of-Fame this fall, and after spending about an hour with some of her works, I can see why.
The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Summer Spectacular is a marathon of a show, and it can wear you down if you let it. It’s important to give yourself a break, even if it’s just for lunch or dinner. Fort Worth, Texas, is my home, so I didn’t need to do much research to find a good spot to grab a bite to eat.
OK. I admit it. I was Pokémon obsessed as a pre-adolescent in elementary and middle school. I remember it like it was yesterday. I handed over a wrinkled dollar bill in exchange for my first card – Ponyta. Ah, the butterflies...
My expectations were fairly high going to Oklahoma City for the first time, because I’m usually able to hunt down a killer restaurant in a big city. When my research led me to Whiskey Cake Kitchen & Bar, a farm-to-kitchen establishment in the inner city, I was immediately excited. My love for “from scratch only” restaurants started when I ate at Farmer Fishers Bakers in Georgetown, D.C., with my brother Cody a few years back, and I haven’t found a place that matched it since.
