Many of you know me as the equestrian sports newspaper columnist for The Star-Ledger of New Jersey. It’s a position I held for more than four decades; first as a staffer, then as a freelancer. My column has always been oriented toward New Jersey and its horse industry, but also has included various other items of equestrian interest. Like so many newspapers these days, however, The Star-Ledger is cutting back on writers as an economy measure during tough times for media. As a result, my Sunday column was dropped from its pages at the end of 2015. But if it was part of your regular reading, you can read on. I will be doing a similar column right here at nancyjaffer.com. So come back often as this website develops and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your news, word of upcoming events, or whatever else you want other readers to know about the equestrian scene in New Jersey and beyond.
