SARA LIESER

MANAGING EDITOR
Sara has had a variety of roles at the Chronicle since she began as an intern at the end of 2003. She spends most of her time editing, organizing and covering dressage and eventing.

A graduate "C-3" from Penobscot Pony Club (Maine), she spent a year working for Denny Emerson before attending Amherst College (Mass.) and is now learning the sport from the ground up by training her own horses.

Molly grew up eventing in Maryland and is a graduate "A" Pony Clubber. She graduated from Mt. Holyoke College (Mass.) with degrees in English and History, then spent several years grooming on the A hunter/jumper circuit before eventually deciding to combine her education with her passion by starting at the Chronicle in 1998.

MOLLIE BAILEY

SENIOR REPORTER AND MARKETING COORDINATOR
Mollie has been with the Chronicle since 2007 and writes mainly news and features about the hunter/jumper circuit.

She grew up training with SBS Farms in Buffalo, N.Y., showing in hunters and equitation, and worked for Susie Schoellkopf and Jen Alfano for several years after graduating from the writing seminars program at Johns Hopkins University (Md.).

She lived in Europe and Brazil before settling in Middleburg, Va., where she lives with a (theoretically) rotating slate of foster cats and hunts with Piedmont Fox Hounds.

LISA SLADE

EDITORIAL STAFF
Lisa grew up riding lower level dressage in North Carolina and graduated from Virginia Intermont College with a degree in English literature. After writing for nearly every publication in Knoxville, Tenn., she moved to Middleburg and started working for the Chronicle in 2008.

She's now relocated back to Knoxville, Tenn., where she spends her free time eventing her off-the-track Thoroughbred mare, Skills, and hanging out with her corgi, Leo. Still new to the sport of eventing and a pretty big chicken, she'll be the person at your next event wondering if her novice table is actually intermediate height.

LINDSAY BERRETH

EDITORIAL STAFF

JENNIFER CALDER

EDITORIAL STAFF

KIMBERLY LOUSHIN

EDITORIAL STAFF

She’s shown her off-the-track Thoroughbred Corey in hunters, jumpers and equitation, but has taken a (potentially unwise) interest in eventing since moving to Virginia. She raised dogs for the Guide Dog Foundation in college and adopted her fluffy princess, Wasabi, from the program.

EDITORIAL STAFF
Originally from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Ann grew up competing at A-circuit shows in the hunter and equitation divisions, first on her pony, Is A Belle, and more recently on her horse, an off-the-track Thoroughbred named Happy Go Lucky.

Ann got an early start on writing about horses—as a young grade school student, she authored a whole series of novellas on stapled packets of computer paper, all about the adventures of the “Pony Rangers.” Unfortunately, the gripping series written mostly in Crayola marker was never picked up by any publishing houses.

Ann attended the University of ...
