First Online Issue of EquineCanada

The Equine Research Centre is pleased to announce its first totally web-based issue of EquineCanada, a quarterly news journal published by the Centre since 1998.

EquineCanada is dedicated to delivering the messages of horse research and horse management for the prevention of disease and injury. The magazine has been distributed across Canada to over 40,000 horse enthusiasts free of charge. Since its launch, one of its unique features has been an interactive web site, which mirrors the journal at

This new issue of EquineCanada features:

  • a farewell from past President Andrew Clarke,
  • new herb and imaging research,
  • new fact sheets on feeding your horse and stable design tips

The EquineCanada web site also hosts JobTrack, an interactive employment center; a calendar of events across Canada; Canadian horse industry statistics; Disease Watch; extensive web links; and an exclusive horse publications e-commerce bookstore.

"I am excited about having EquineCanada totally web-based," said Kelly Counsell, managing editor. "The Web adds new dimension to publishing. Cyberspace is unlimited, and thoughts are interconnected through hyperlinks. With the help of our webmasters at Grand Connections, I am looking forward to taking web publishing to its limits. We will be reaching the broadest horse audience possible, while providing our sponsors with a more cost-effective communications vehicle."
