We Want to Celebrate Northwest Equestrian Businesses!
With events closing down this past year we want to give you an opportunity to continue sharing your organization, products and services to our viewers online! My hope is that we can help BOOST your business back into shape with a FREE promotion. Keep it short and simple (5 minutes or less) and we’ll do the rest! Create a short, promotional video that tells our readers about your product or service. Don’t worry if you don’t have much experience or are shy in front of a camera. Just have a conversation as if you were at a trade show, horse show or someone came into your store. I certainly don’t have any experience so don’t be shy! If I can do it, so can you! Watch this short video I’ve prepared for you:
Send us your YouTube Video or MP4 file. You can upload files here.
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.
