I've subscribed to magazines for as long as I can remember and a few of those are horse magazines.
I’m a very visual person and love photographs mixed in with stories. I love the tangible and I love to dog-ear pages so I can revisit what inspires me. When I’m ready to recycle the issue I take one more run-through and tear out pages and put them in a folder for future reference.
Here are a some of my favorite equestrian magazines…
