Happy New Year! and Happy New Look!



by Christy Howard Parsons

We at Walking Horse Report are unveiling our new design with this first issue of 2004! We are excited to be bringing you a cleaner, more streamlined approach to our coverage of the horse show industry. Your favorite features are still here and are more user friendly than ever before, and we have a host of new exciting things to show you.

With our new format, you can expect more editorial coverage than ever before. More full color coverage of horse shows, new regular monthly columns introduced each week, and a greater communication between Walking Horse Report online and our print product.

We will be bringing you our first annual Highpoint Report champions from 2003 in the early months of this year recognizing those horses who have earned recognition not at a single horse show, but by showing and earning top ribbons all year long. This special issue will be of the highest quality in a format we think you will love.

Our tradition and commitment to reporting the news first and accurately has not changed. We continue to be dedicated to bringing you the most complete, accurate information in the business. We hear you when you tell us you like us to “tell it like it is.”

As the only weekly publication, we understand the need to get the information to you fast. Through Walking Horse Report Online we provide you a means of receiving your information in an even more timely manner. And in 2004 you can expect even faster delivery of news to you right to your computer desktop!

We want your information to be as complete as possible, so in 2004 we will be bringing you more news than ever before. We are asking you to send us your news - sales in your barn, birth announcements and obituaries, special programs and committees you represent, even your opinions in letters to the editor. And we will send you a reward every time you submit a news item that is published.

I would like to thank Melissa Stevens, Jason Bradford, Nick Lavender and the staff of Dabora, Inc. for their outstanding work on this redesign. Together we at Dabora are committed to serving you even better in 2004. We hope you like our new look!
