Most of us have a lot more free time on our hands lately – I know I do! I’ve finally gotten to read all the equestrian magazines I have around the house, which has been so fun!
There are so many great magazines out there that cover everything from great products to rider education to horse care and beyond! Personally, I love to be able to flip through a magazine while sitting on the couch or outside in the yard. It’s so relaxing and helps me keep my equine knowledge sharp.
I like to read a variety of magazines, so I’ve made a list of some of my favorites. Check it out:
