Horse Magazine Subscriptions

Are you a magazine reader? Do you love horses? If you answered yes to both of those questions, this is the perfect article for you to peruse. The magazine industry has certainly changed over the years. Many magazines can still be purchased in a traditional print format. Though the digital age has certainly seen a surge in popularity with magazines as well. Most of the bigger magazines these days offer a digital version. Some magazines offer print AND digital.

I have included both print and digital horse magazine subscription options below. You will find a pretty big variety of horse magazines to choose from. There are several magazines that are aimed at a younger (kid) audience and then a bunch that are written for an adult audience.

Take a look at what is available and see if any of them interest you. I will note how many issues are published in a year. This varies greatly among the different titles. One of the magazines below is published WEEKLY, while some of the others only put out 1 issue each quarter (4 issues per year).

Many of these subscriptions are available directly from the publisher, on discount magazine sites, and on amazon.

We were subscribers for many years to Horse Illustrated when I was growing up.
