The Walking Horse Report is proud to announce that Jeffrey Howard has rejoined the Report staff on a full-time basis after selling Howard Promotions, a family promotional products company that he managed. Howard joined the family business, Dabora, Inc., in 2000, and throughout the last eight years, Howard has assisted the Walking Horse Report staff and attended most Walking Horse shows.

Dabora Publisher Christy Howard Parsons will be turning over the reins of the Walking Horse Report to Jeffrey, as well as some other divisions of the company, as she expands Dabora through acquisitions and new ventures.

“Jeffrey is more than capable of leading the Walking Horse Report to bigger and better things,” said Parsons. “He has wonderful customer relationships and a talented staff to work with. And I’m excited about acquiring new businesses that we’ve wanted to pursue but didn’t have the human resources to consider in the past.”

“I enjoy the Walking Horse business and I’m excited to be able to fully allocate my time to Dabora and the traditional part of our family business,” said Howard. “We have over forty years of experience in the Walking Horse industry and I look forward to continuing that tradition.”

Dabora President David L. Howard commented “Christy has done a tremendous job in leading our publications division including Walking Horse Report, Saddle Horse Report and Horse World. Jeffrey started and developed Howard Promotions to become a major player in the promotional products business and sold it to one of the industry’s leading companies. Working together I have no doubt they will lead the Walking Horse Report and our publishing business to even greater successes.”
