So most of the information below has changed
We had to stop the print publication due to not enough subscribers, however, we are still asking for your help. We will still honor the FREE Club News in both the digital edition and the website if we get enough contributors. We will determine which clubs to promote as we get more monthly contributors. Wouldn’t it be awesome to have a beautifully designed article each month as well as the same article on our website? We catch our readers through multiple channels. So…make your contribution here today! Thank you for helping us share quality editorial with the horse community!
Could Your Club Use This?
What if you spent just $5.00 per month (Less than a Starbucks), get your regional magazine delivered to your door each month and help your club at the same time? Why not? I know this has always been available free to the public but times have changed. Some stores are closing, COVID 19 so more people are home, less ad revenue and increased production costs. So we’re stepping up and offering more ideas to keep information flowing in a central place for all horse owners. Quality journalism is still important and celebrating accomplishments of our regional horsemen and women is something we will continue doing.
We’re adding a youth column, a trainer profile column and more news from local organizations. My goal is to inspire and educate readers and viewers like you to get the most out of your experience with horses and connect you with resources in the area. I am open to ideas and suggestions and look forward to working with clubs that have very little marketing budget if any. Information in the horse world is scattered and there are so many places to search for information, it’s hard to know where to go. We are gathering information in one place that has the connection you need to the horse world in the Northwest. We’ll add more columns and resources as subscriptions grow so help us make the leap to continue offering these services and more!
When we get the 2200 subscribers at the end of the month we will continue distributing to our current locations so those that can’t afford the magazine can still pick it up. This helps the advertisers too! We’re grateful for the stores that generously put this magazine out every month for our readers to pick up. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. You can connect with me via our contact form.

The Northwest Horse Source
We’re counting down to December 31st. We need 2200 Subscribers to keep the print magazine going. As of today we have 105 so we need just a bit more!
*for 12 month period.
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. Now 25 years later, it’s an online magazine and website with a reach of over 10,000 per month and growing! 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.
