We would like to send a big chinchilla congratulations to Sherri Harvey, whose story, “Matt Brown and East-West Training Concepts”, has been selected as our Omega Alpha Reader Submission of the Month for April.
“Because of the continued dedication to his philosophy, his hard work, continuous self-evaluation, and help and support from Cecily, winning happened. What you put out to the universe comes back to you. I am honored to know Matt Brown. Where will his journey take him? Stay tuned to find out.”
Sherri will receive a free supply of an Omega Alpha supplement of her choosing. Want to win an Omega Alpha supplement? Send in your story, clinic report, video or other article to [email protected].

Many thanks to Sherri for writing and to Omega Alpha for supporting Eventing Nation. Go eventing!
Here are a few of our other favorite reader submissions from April:
Best Collegiate Wrap Up: “Collegiate Eventing Team Challenge at Chatt Hills a Success” by Caroline Hawkins
“While much of the eventing world was focused on The Fork this past weekend, collegiate eventing took center stage at the Chattahoochee Hills April Horse Trials. Five colleges: University of Georgia, Auburn University, University of Alabama, Clemson University, and the University of North Georgia, made up nine teams consisting of 32 riders who competed over the weekend.”
Best Clinic Report: “Spring Training with Jim Graham” by Jana Lyle
“While I feel like my horse is more fit earlier this year, we haven’t really jumped all winter so I was thrilled with him. He really didn’t put a foot wrong all weekend, allowing me to make the most of our time with Jim. It was such a great experience, and I love Jim’s teaching style. He worked as hard as I did to get the best out of us, and I hope I’ll have another opportunity to ride with him soon!”
Best Horse of a Different Color: “My Horse of a Different Color” by Rachel Galambos
” Every time we shows he puts his bog boy pants on and gives me his best. His vibrant personality makes him a great jumper who is wonderfully bold and really “attacks” the jumps. Each time we go out he gets better, bolder and learns something new. Of all the Arabians and Thoroughbreds I have ridden his is smarter, hotter, more athletic, and more energetic than any of them and I believe he will have a great career in front if him.”
