Included in today’s newspaper is the inaugural edition of The Camden Horse magazine, Camden Media Co.’s first venture into magazine publishing. In addition to being inserted into the Chronicle-Independent, The Camden Horse is also available for pickup at key locations throughout Kershaw County. Total distribution of the magazine is 8,000, providing, by far, the largest distribution of any horse publication in the area. The Camden Horse will also be available online under “Special print sections” at, benefiting both readers and advertisers.

The Camden Horse will be published quarterly with the next edition coming out in January. “The response that we received from advertisers as well those in the local horse community has been overwhelming,” according to Camden Media Co. Publisher Mike Mischner. “I would like to offer a special thanks to our staff, especially Tom Didato, the premier equine journalist in the area, for doing such a superb job. Equally important was the job done by Betsy Greenway and her professional advertising sales team and Barbara Stevens and her expert ad compositors. Significant design work for the magazine was also done by Martha Bruce and Keri Todd Boyce.”

Our debut edition features a cover story on Carolina Cup Racing Association Chairman Beverly (Peggy) Steinman and her illustrious achievements in the equine world. Also spotlighted in this issue are Black Jack Blues, an Irish-bred gelding who has dazzled the American steeplechase world and looks right for a win at Saturday’s Colonial Cup; the Camden Training Center’s Nancy Terhune, whose busy pace as an owner/breeder/trainer is all in a day’s work; and the king of caterers in South Carolina, Jack Brantley, whose tailgating spreads are as much a Cup tradition as the races themselves.

“Additionally, I know that our readers will enjoy and look forward to columns by Hope Cooper and Teri Leigh Teed, horse community stalwarts who both will be writing exclusively for The Camden Horse, and also the beautiful photography of  Catherine French, Camden’s leading equine photographer.”
