About Us

Life, Inspired by Horses

Welcome to Northeast Equestrian Life, an exciting new magazine celebrating a passion for horses while championing the equestrian lifestyle. This free publication will feel right at home on your tack trunk at the barn or in a comfortable chair after a long trail ride. This is the magazine for you if you understand, or want to understand, the lifestyle that not only inspires us but that which gives us such enjoyment.
With quality editorial and stunning photography, Northeast Equestrian Life showcases life well lived.

Our Coverage

We live here, we ride here, we belong here. We print 33,000 copies each issue, distribute to tack shops, feed and farm supply stores, tractor and trailer dealers, vet offices, pet stores, barns, events and more throughout Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York. Six times per year, you’ll see familiar faces gracing our pages, while learning about your neighbors. It’s more than just a magazine; it’s uniting our community of equestrians with a heavy emphasis on being local.

Our Team

As a team, our underlying goal is to embrace all facets of the horse community. We represent a number of varied equine backgrounds, coming together to bring our readers abroad, a cohesive view of what it means to be an equestrian.
