Times are changing rapidly. Nobody could have predicted what 2020 would bring. Businesses are having to make significant changes to stay viable and we here at the Horse Source are facing the same issues. We want to be a valuable resource to the equestrian community in the Northwest and we’ve figured out how to do this! If you would like to receive the magazine at your home (saves you a trip to the store!) we can make that happen. But we must offset our costs.
With smaller feed and tack stores closing and bigger box stores becoming more reluctant to put out magazines, we need to do something different. People are also becoming more reluctant to visit retail stores during the pandemic. So, here are some great reasons to receive the magazine at your home:
- Saves gas!
- Guaranteed it will be delivered. Stores often run out of the current issue if you don’t get there on the first of the month, or the magazines offered are outdated.
- We support local clubs and organizations by offering discounted advertising.
- We are community minded and focus our publication on trainers, businesses and writers from the Northwest.
- We bring quality products and services to our readers.
- We offer print for those who prefer to have something tangible in hand. No electricity or internet connection required!
- We offer friendly, accessible customer service.
- We enjoy writing about local horse people making a difference.
- Printed in the U.S. and supporting five families.
These are just a few reasons to pre-order your subscription today. We are making some massive changes and want to continue offering the print magazine to those who enjoy The Northwest Horse Source and would like to see it continue serving our region. After all, we’ve been doing it for 25 years!

Owner/Publisher Karen’s lifelong love of horses began at a very early age when she wore out a couple of rocking horses before convincing her parents to get her the real thing. That ill-tempered bay gelding, Brandy, was a challenge for the young horsewoman, but it drove her ambition to become a horse trainer. After attending Canyonview Equestrian College’s Horsemanship Program, Karen realized she needed work that was a little more lucrative than training, so she took a job with Customs Brokerage to pay the bills. There, she discovered an affinity for computers and a talent for creating informative, entertaining newsletters. The Northwest Horse Source began as such a letter in December 1995, with a distribution of 1000 copies for its 12 black and white pages. Since then, it has grown into beautiful, all-gloss magazine with the largest coverage of any free equine publication in the Northwest – a distribution of over 14,000 copies and over 500 locations monthly. Not bad for the results of one woman’s dream to work with horses!
Today, Karen remains involved with every aspect of the magazine and treasures the community of thousands who share a common passion. Somewhere in the wee hours of the early mornings and late evenings, she still finds time to care for April, her gorgeous and sweet-tempered Quarter Horse.
