Equiery Transfers To New Ownership

After 27 Years, Equiery Publisher/Editor Crystal Brumme Pickett Retires Happy New Year, Equiery fans, followers, readers and clients! When the clock struck 12:01 a.m. on January 1, 2018, the Maryland Horse Council officially became the new owner and publisher of The Equiery. The January 2018 Equiery was the last issue to go to press under my stewardship, and to say the end of 2017 was  bittersweet is an understatement. 1990: A Foal is Born I was 24 and Mercedes Clemens was 23 when we shared a moment of frustration followed by the eureka moment.

That was September. By December 1990, our first issue of 12 pages was in almost every tack and feed store in central Maryland. In that issue, we pledged “to be your guide to...

Going to Graceland

First published in the December 2017 Equiery by Crystal Pickett It started with a prayer… And then the journey. One sturdy hoof-step at a time and one heart full of hope. On Sunday, October 7, Tom Cashman and Homer The Mule left West Friendship… eight days and approximately 900 miles later they arrived in Memphis, Tennessee. Why Memphis? Memphis is best know as the home of Graceland, but Memphis is also a land of grace and home to the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. A place where potentially terminal illnesses are valiantly fought. A place where there is never...
