From the Hoof Beats guidelines:

So you want to write for the world’s most widely read harness racing magazine... One of the reasons that Hoof Beats is so popular among our readers is because we feature the best writers in racing. To be part of our team, we urge you to READ, READ, READ––Hoof Beats! Get to know our magazine and our style, our audience and our voice. Hoof Beats is about 70–percent freelance written, and we are always looking for new and exciting story ideas pertaining exclusively to Standardbreds and harness racing. Photographs are also encouraged.

Writers should be as familiar with harness racing as our readers are. We don’t need any general how–to stories. Topics of interest include unique horse stories, veterinary care, tips on equipment or feed innovations, historical perspectives, unique first-person perspectives, and stories on issues or trends.
