From the Horse Illustrated guidelines:

We are looking for reader-friendly pieces with a conversational tone, shorter word counts (500 to 1,200) and topics to add dimension to the magazine’s regular training and horse care features—human interest, lifestyle, fashion, travel, equestrian issues—both large (welfare) and small (boarding barn drama!)—plus humor, first person stories, and more.

On our wish list:

  • Training articles that can apply to both western and English riders (1,000 word or less). Horse health—our readers always request more!
  • Horse care how-tos, including grooming and instructables
  • Trail riding topics
  • Fresh ways to approach perennial topics, such as deworming, senior care, fly control, seasonal care.
  • Interviews with celebrities that ride or own horses; fun and quirky Q&As with “big name” riders as well as short profiles of interesting people in the horse world.
  • Humor; first-person pieces; human interest stories; rider-to-rider advice.
  • Equestrian travel and tourism.
  • Rider fitness, health & well-being; diet, exercise and tips for riders.
  • Style trends and décor for equestrians.
