Lesley Ward Named Editor-in-Chief of Bowtie Inc.’s Equine Magazine Group


IRVINE, CA, December 10, 2007 – BowTie, Inc., the world’s premier pet publisher, is proud to announce the promotion of Young Rider Editor Lesley Ward to the position of Editor-in-Chief of its equine magazine group. In addition to her regular duties with Young Rider, she will take over a managerial role on Horse Illustrated and Horses USA.

“I am very happy with Lesley’s new appointment as she has done a tremendous job as editor of Young Rider. She is an accomplished rider with extensive knowledge of the equine industry,” said Pat Trowbridge, group publisher of BowTie’s equine division. “We will benefit greatly from her skills as an editor, journalist, photographer and equestrienne. I look forward to working with her in her new position.”

Ward began her career working for several horse magazines in England including Horse Sense and Horse and Pony before returning to the United States to launch Young Rider. Under BowTie’s ownership, Young Rider grew its circulation to more than 85,000 readers. She is the author of several BowTie Press books such as “The Horse Illustrated Guide to Buying a Horse,” “Caring for a Horse,” “Let’s Go to a Show,” and “Western and English Riding.” An accomplished equine photographer, her photos appear regularly in Horse Illustrated, Thoroughbred Times and HorseChannel.com.

“I’m so excited to be leading a fully-staffed team. It’s wonderful to be part of a group in which everyone truly loves the subject they write about – horses, of course,” said Ward. “Almost every person in the horse division rides or owns horses – and this includes the advertising team, as well. It gives the BowTie horse group a lot of credibility in the equine publishing industry.”
