It has been one heck of a year for most (weather-wise), from floods, to fires, now the snow season. What will 2018 bring? I hope our winter season is a calm one for all...

Saddle Up 2016

In our 17th year of publishing Saddle Up, I want to thank our readers, our advertisers, the authors that send in news/training articles, the clubs that send in their reports, and overall general supporters in one form or another.

Saddle Up Magazine Shop Online

Since we are a free magazine, we solely rely on advertising revenue each month to print. The social media craze is not an easy one to compete with… but we have… and we are still publishing 11 issues per year (just not January). I am still a firm believer in, and enjoy holding, a ‘paper copy’ of any newspaper or magazine, reading with a coffee or a glass of wine in my hand – as I know most of you do too. And I thank you! Keep up with us… and we will keep up with you.

I hope you enjoy our last issue of 2017… cozy up by the fire and grab that ‘hard copy’ to read… and a beverage of your choice of course! I know I will.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

From your ‘community-minded-horse-friendly’ (printed) magazine!
And available for your viewing pleasure on line for free to anyone (if you so choose).

Until next month…
