Comparisons to Other Magazines
Horse Illustrated has the industry’s most comprehensive editorial. Readers turn to one publication – Horse Illustrated – over other “niche” publications for a wide range of special columns and features instead of buying three separate magazines to cover English riding, Western riding, and health care. Comprehensive coverage of equine health, nutrition, grooming, and all aspects of horse care helps keep your horse in top shape. Everyday training difficulties, sporting across the world, medical milestones, and functional equestrian fashion; you can expect to find it all in Horse Illustrated.
Advertising is relevant to the magazine, offering products and services that all horse enthusiasts will be interested in. An Ad Index is included in each issue featuring the page number of the advertiser.
The United States Equestrian Foundation, the national governing body for equestrian sport in the United States, has recognized Horse Illustrated for excellence with a Pegasus Award for Media as Equestrian Publication of the Year in 2004 and following up with an honorable mention in the same category in 2005.
