Pryor Joins Horse World



 


Merritt Pryor

 

Horse World welcomes the addition of Merritt Pryor as an advertising and editorial representative. From Charlotte, N.C., Pryor will be covering many shows as an out-of-office sales representative.

Pryor began riding and showing Arabian horses at age seven. She competed on the regional and national level. Before college, she sold her horses and attended the University of North Carolina at Asheville, where she received her degree management and business administration. Soon after college she was introduced into the Saddlebred industry and now rides with Brooke and Quintus VanderSpuy at Lenux Stables and Riding Academy in Huntersville, N.C.

Pryor’s background is in outside insurance sales. Her most recent position was with Liberty Mutual. “We are delighted to have Merritt join our team. Her professionalism and outgoing personality are a welcome addition to our Horse World staff,” says Horse World publisher Christy Howard Parsons.

Pryor looks forward to learning more about the Saddlebred industry and meeting more people in the business.
