About The Plaid Horse
The Plaid Horse was founded in 2003 to serve the equestrian community. In the past year, examples of horse show distribution included: The Devon Horse Show, USEF Pony Finals, all HITS shows, Lake Placid Horse Shows, Blenheim Equisports, Washington International Horse Show, and The National Horse Show, HITS, and the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show.
The Plaid Horse is a print, audio and digital publishing company* providing exceptional coverage for the hunter/jumper/breeding disciplines at reasonable rates. We support equestrian competitors, horse fans, the general public, and suppliers to the industry through horse show and event coverage, equine articles of interest, advertisements and our horse show podcast.
*The Plaid Horse is proudly printed in the USA.
All competitors in rated horse shows are members of the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF). Using USEF market research, these participants are part of an upscale market. Hunter/jumper competitors are well educated, have high disposable income, and have time to use it in pursuit of their passions. The horse industry is a thriving complex market with a direct economic effect of $39 billion per year in the United States. Three million people in the United States own horses and another 6.6 million are involved in the horse industry. Our readers travel frequently, patronize upscale hotels and restaurants, invest in their passion and their children’s interests.
