Good magazine, too many ads

 

I really like the magazine and most of the articles. I realize that advertizing is how you keep a magazine going, but I never subscribed to any magazine before and now I know why. Can't stand all the ads, but I am realistic and know they are necessary. Probably won't re-subscribe.

Good but not Great Magazine

 

I want to know where to ride not what to ride. This is a great magazine for trail riders but I dropped my subscription for a time because I got tired of so many articles touting Twks and Fox Trotters. I ride a foundation breed quarter horse but there are many other good breeds that work just as well and should be featured. For the trails that I like there is no advantage in having a gated horse. How about a "not sure what breed" article now and then... just good horses that do a good job. I enjoy learning about new places to ride out of state and make use of the advertisers.

Good magazine for trail riders

 

I have been a subscriber for a number of years and have enjoyed your magazine. There are a lot of good tips for camping and riding and a lot of the advertisements help keep me informed of new products. I have always ridden gaited horses and appreciate your articles and advice for those of us who enjoy a smooth ride on our favorite trails. I picked up some good information on a portable horse washer in the current issue.

Good magazine

 

I like trail rider magazine, my favorite articles are those that let the reader know where good riding trails are located within the different states. I like to know where good trailer parking is found, whether they have pull through spaces, water, group camping, decent bathrooms, etc. I like articles about trail safety. Low impact horse camping. Tips on better ways to camp. Anything to do with being a better trail rider, or how to train a trail horse. What I don't like is the focus on gaited horses over other types of equine. Leave that to magazines dedicated to the gaited horse. That doesn't mean you can't highlight a particular breed every now and again as a great trail companion. Just don't be biased on any particular type.

I love this magazine! I find many good tips on trail riding, first aid, riding in general. Also, very reputable advertisers.

Great Magazine

 

I subscribe to about 4 horse magazines and this is the best. I wish it were monthly. It has great information. I really like the article on if gaited horses need a special bit. I also love the destination articles. This is a great magazine.

Good articles on areas to ride, iffy on nutritional and equipment advice

 

We enjoy the articles on horse friendly areas around the country and plan to pack up and visit more areas in SE and central US. It is geat to learn about so many wonderful places to ride. The recent breed information was very interesting and an educational window to learn about breeds other than QHs and Arabs. However, the nutritional information could be (not, it would be and should be ) much better if it were written by a horse nutritionist (PhD level) or veterinarian. One recent article describing how to ride a horse down a steep incline was really bad advice and some other bits and pieces are bogus, (for example, a recent article questioning the truth if gaited hroses really need a special bit) was really just page filler. Proper horsemanship advice should always be a part of the magazine as many people get into trail riding and horses for the riding aspect only, without much prior and proper education of appropriate horse care.
