As the Horse Sport magazine audience increasingly looks to the digital world to get their news and information, the time has come for Horse Sport to evolve its legacy to better meet those needs. Our ever growing online audience means that we reach more Canadians faster through web, email, social media, and search engines. The transition from print to digital will allow us to dedicate more resources to serve our community where and when they are looking. To that end, we will publish the final regular print edition of Horse Sport in February 2020.
The magazine was originally launched in 1968 to unite and inform the horse industry when a bunch of wild young men managed to field Canada’s first equestrian team at the Mexico Olympics. One gold medal later, an industry was born and we’ve been proud to highlight many more medals since. We will now continue that tradition online and are still committed to bringing you profiles, tips, and information while also covering the issues that are important to you, but now in a way that is more timely and convenient.
The support of readers and advertisers alike has allowed us to bring you the very best articles, experts and commentary in the equestrian industry and we extend a heartfelt thanks to them all for their loyalty and commitment. With your continued support we will bring you the same level of expertise and depth of coverage that you have come to expect.
We are especially grateful to our loyal subscribers who have made all of this possible over the last 52 years. You are a passionate, enthusiastic, and dedicated group of horsepeople and we are so proud to have shared in your triumphs as we’ve featured your many successes. To this group we will continue to offer unlimited access to our digital archives and complimentary hard copies of your favourite issues while supplies last. To the many who have recently gifted subscriptions for the holidays, we thank you for your valuable endorsement and will send the final issue to those people at no charge. Many of you already enjoy our regular digital e-newsletters, and we hope any that haven’t will sign-up now so you don’t miss what we have in store for the future.
Having showcased many of the industry’s builders in the 50th anniversary issue, it seems fitting that the final issue should look ahead so we will take this opportunity to profile the 50 most influential people in Canadian horse sport right now. These are the people that are shaping the future of our evolving sport and we are excited to share their names and what they are working on that will impact you in the years to come.
Horse Sport is your equestrian sport authority and we will continue that tradition online.
