Horse Talk is online only!

After 25 years of publishing our print magazine, Horse Talk will now be online only! So although we will not have our print magazine, we will continue our website and social media, and share news, events, products and services with the Virginia equestrian community, and to many more horse lovers throughout the world.

Our readers have come to expect quality features stories, as well as a complete calendar of events, free classified ads, news and event listings. When we first started publishing Horse Talk in 1992 our goal was to provide the Virginia equine community with a resource to find horse shows, tack stores, equine businesses and more. With the advent of the internet, it is a whole different world now. However, our goal is still the same. We want our readers, followers, and fans to know that there are real, caring people behind the scene at Horse Talk who want to share our love of horses with you.

Also, we would not be where we are today without our advertisers. We feel that by continuing to offer advertising on our website, we can help businesses market to our loyal readers who have grown to trust us over the last 25 years. Our marketing packages are designed to take the chore of advertising off the business owners plate, and get it done in 3 easy steps. And, we have plans to fit every budget. The following pages explain the advertising choices.

Please feel free to contact Lois if you have any questions. We welcome submissions of editorial and press releases to share on our website. We are always looking for story ideas, and would love to add more guest bloggers and writers to our website.
