Wellington, FL – January 17, 2012 - The first segment of Mason Phelps Radio was a huge success last week, and as listeners gear up for the second installment on Thursday, January 19, the guests are lining up to join Phelps in studio. Karen O’Connor, Boyd Martin, Carol Cohen, and Bernie Traurig will join Phelps and co-host Steve Williams this week at 5:00 p.m. EST on W4CY.com. Phelps and his guests will be discussing the most important issues regarding the equestrian community, from exciting upcoming events, to the challenges and obstacles the sport faces.
Olympian Karen O’Connor will be a guest this week as she prepares for Friday night’s PRO DerbyCross event at the Winter Equestrian Festival. Teams are composed of three event riders, a show jumper, and a polo player. The teams compete in a relay event over a course of cross-country and stadium jumping obstacles in the International Arena. Also participating in PRO DerbyCross and joining Phelps will be eventing rider Boyd Martin.
“I’m delighted to be included on Mason Phelps Radio, and I am looking forward to talking about my year coming up in 2012, as well as the exciting DerbyCross,” commented O’Connor. “I am a board member for PRO and I am also a team captain. It is a very exciting event that everyone can enjoy.”
The World Dressage Masters is also right around the corner, and this week chairman of the World Dressage Masters Ambassador's Committee Carol Cohen will be in studio to discuss the upcoming event. “I am thrilled to be a guest on the show,” she remarked. “I am very excited to work with Mason, he is so highly respected in the community. He knows everything and everyone, and it’s really fun for me to a part of it and talk about World Dressage Masters.”
Cohen added, “We’re going to talk about the changes we’ve made for this year, the talent that is coming in, and how the venue has gotten better. This is the second year in a row that the International Polo Club has produced the event, and everything is improving.”
The final guest on the show will be EquestrianCoach.com President Bernie Traurig. EquestrianCoach.com is an online education service that provides systematic, online "lessons" presented by Traurig and a host of world-class trainers and competitors.
