2014 is going to be hard to beat. I made so many great memories—horseback riding through Yellowstone, winning my first buckle and being involved in many great local events. That said, 2015 is going to be super special because December issue marks 20 years publishing the Northwest Horse Source.

I have seen such an incredible change in the industry since starting the magazine. It’s been quite an evolution. The way we share information has changed dramatically, along with how we interact with our friends and community. It was scary at first, but now I’m embracing all the ways we have instant access to people and information.  Change can be overwhelming yet it also offers wonderful ways to grow.

This will be the first issue of the magazine that’s published in a responsive digital edition. What this means is our magazine will now be available on your smart phones and tablets. We will still offer the print publication, of course, but now you can access the magazine from wherever you are. This is one of the ways we’re growing with a changing industry. To view, simply visit our homepage at and click on the cover image.

This issue focuses on breeding and buying horses. How we purchase horses has also changed dramatically. However, one thing should remain constant: that we trust who and where we get information. As a solid resource for nearly 20 years, we look forward to providing you with relevant, useful, trusted information in the future. Thank you for growing with us for so many years.

Finally, we bring you details of a super event happening in Washington, February 20-22, 2015. It’s an action packed weekend with clinics and shopping. Read all about the Washington State Horse Expo on page 6. We hope to see you there!
