More About Horse Illustrated and More Contests to Enter!

Say it ain’t so! Horse Illustrated magazine is going from a 12x a year format to a 10x a year format. This comes after I featured their October issue in a recent post at I mentioned in that post that HI was still one of the few horse magazines that published monthly. Well sadly no more!

Granted, that is still better than Equus, Horse and Rider and Practical Horseman. All three of them went from a 12x a year format to a quarterly format. Even more surprising to me was seeing Dressage Today, another 12x a year magazine, disappear completely as a stand-alone entity. It was instead absorbed by Practical Horseman.

Anyhow, I suppose I should be grateful that Horse Illustrated will mostly still be published monthly. The publishing schedule will now be January/February, then monthly from March through October and finishing the year with a November/December issue.

Despite my disappointment over the publishing schedule changes, I still love sitting down to relax with a stack of my favorite horse magazines. I also still love entering contests. If you are a USA resident, here are ones you might want to enter.

  1. Too bad about the magazine. It is a sign of the times I’m afraid. I tried to do the Kentucky survey as Biasini is 15 but you have to be a resident of the US to take part. Ah well…

    1. I run into that kind of problem with some frequency too. I get all excited about some advertised contest, only to realize that it is for UK or Canadian residents only. If I see some of those contests in the future, I will have to remember to include them in a future contest round-up post. Thanks for trying to play along.
