Are you an Equipreneur?
An equipreneur is someone who starts their business because of their passion for horses, hoping to make a profit or a difference in the world to help horse owners and their horses.
An equipreneur is willing to take risks to get their dream off the ground and isn't afraid to seize new opportunities as they arise. They diversify; they are always learning and probably also mucking out, riding, taking care of the family, all while making their business a success.
👋 Hello fellow equipreneur, I'm glad you found us! We love meeting and working with talented equine business owners.
Our team is made up of equipreneurs. We have all run various equine businesses from retail to riding coaches and, of course, our very special magazine (even if we do say so ourselves!)

Get in Front of your Niche in 2021
We have put together three budget-friendly brand marketing packages. These can be used either on their own or in combination to meet your objectives.
📢Raising your Profile - New for 2021!
This great-value marketing package will deliver simultaneous presence across a range of media, ensuring your voice is amplified.
There are four main elements to the package, and these are:
🎬A professionally produced video published on YouTube and our website.
🎤A professionally scripted and delivered podcast recording, distributed and hosted on all the popular podcast broadcasters.
📑A blog, written for you and hosted on the Horse Journal website.
📖An article, written and published in either Horsemanship Journal or Western Horse UK – whichever you prefer.
These will be further shared across all of our social media groups and pages, resulting in a comprehensive, wide-reaching campaign. The video and podcasts will be available to audiences indefinitely or until you want them to be taken down if you have a time-limited offer.
You're going to be wondering how much all of this costs. This entire Raising your Profile package, comprising the four elements, will require an investment from you of just £100.
So what do we need from you to get started?
Whilst this appears like a lot, all we need from you is an hour of your time, and we will get to work. We will use this time to learn more about your business and the key messages you wish to communicate to your target audience.
You might be wondering if this package could benefit you.
You can use this package to launch a new product or service or raise awareness of your existing offering.
We'd suggest that you don't attempt to tell people everything there is to know about your business and what you do. Think carefully about the key things you wish to include - we can guide you on this.
Remember, you should use each of the four elements to drive people to your own website, where they can find out much more about your business.
Finally, we'd urge you to secure your booking as soon as possible. We are confident that this package will be popular throughout 2021. To ensure we can deliver for you, even if you're not ready to get started.
📌We can put you on the equine map, quite literally
Suppose you have a geographically based business that relies on visitors, for example, a saddler or an equestrian centre. In that case, you need as many people in your catchment area to know that you're in business and where you are.
In every printed issue of Western Horse UK or Horseman Journal, we have a UK and Ireland map featuring all participating businesses. You will also benefit from a listing with your business name, the services you offer and how people can contact you or find you. This is also available on our website with clickable links through to your own website.
We share this regularly with all our social media groups and pages, giving you a huge reach to your potential customers.
So how much will this cost you?
You can enjoy a year-round presence in all our printed magazine and online for just £195 or £16.66 a month.
You can now also choose an online-only map for £9.95per month, not only can you reach your niche who is looking for equine businesses just like yours, but the links can also help with your SEO. Building strong backlinks can really help rank in search engines.

UK Western Riders are spread throughout England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland; many will be the only, or one of very few, western riders in their area. This distance makes access to trainers and like-minded individuals difficult; being the only western rider at an English livery yard takes determination.
Western riders in the UK dare to be different; many have converted from English riding styles. This network of devoted western riders is supported by some membership organisations. They connect with like-minded riders through social media.
Western Horse UK is the only online and print media dedicated to all western disciplines, supporting western riders with training, riding articles, and community news.
Horsemanship articles are for open-minded equestrians, keen to explore new ways of being with their horses, not just in terms of training but also in keeping and caring for their equine partners.
Over the decades, the ratio of working horses to pleasure horses has changed significantly. It has changed how equestrians wish to communicate and care for their horses. Horsemanship Journal readers are concerned with improving equine health, care and management. They desire a connection with their horses, with the horse's natural behaviour being the key to a mutually rewarding relationship.
❔Magazine Advertising Frequently Asked Questions❔
What is a Magazine Advertisement?
A typical advert is known as a display advert or print ad. They are colour and will sit alongside relevant content for the magazine reader.
Other adverts that you might see in a magazine are directories. Directories or guides are smaller ads but organise the adverts into themes so that readers can easily find what they are looking for. In our case, the guides are organised around a map.
Advertorials are written articles that allow you to speak directly to the audience and explain your product's aspects in detail, allowing you to build trust and credibility.
Are Magazine Advertisments Worth It?
A magazine ad allows you to reach a highly targeted niche audience. Online advertising can appear to be a cheap, quick way to get new clients. But how many new clients do you really get? How much did you actually pay for that click? How many hours did you spend trying to target the right audience?
You did target your niche audience, right? You didn't just boost a post or let social choose for you?
Magazines have already identified your exact niches. They provide them with relevant content that they actually sit and read (otherwise, they wouldn't subscribe). This guarantees your striking brand advertisement is placed in front of your target audience, who care about your products.
How Much do Magazine Adverts Cost?
Less than you think!
