About The Horse: Your Guide to Equine Health Care

The Horse magazine covers

The Horse provides health information for horses of all breeds and disciplines and offers cutting-edge knowledge to veterinarians, owners and managers who care for their horses. The magazine is a forum for the exchange of information and knowledge between researchers and veterinarians, and the top-level clients which are served by equine health professionals.

Extensive information on topics of concern is supplemented by timely features on horse health and news from researchers, veterinarians in the field and other equine professionals.

The Horse is concerned with all aspects of equine health, and it is written for hands-on horse owners, trainers, riders, breeders, and barn managers who want to know more about taking the best care of his or her horses.

The Horse's editors work closely with an editorial advisory board made up of veterinarians who are members of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP).  This board assures that what we publish is the most accurate, up-to-date information available on topics of interest to horse owners.  No other equine title goes through such a rigorous editorial process.  In fact, it was because of our editorial quality that The Horse became the first formal educational partner of the AAEP. 

The Horse features practical articles which are edited to interpret complex issues.  The publication acts to bridge the gap from the research laboratory to the barn, to help horsemen sort valuable information from gimmicks and fads.  Our mission at The Horse is to help readers breed, raise, and train healthier horses.
