Report On Line Tops 18,300,000 Hits in 2005

The Walking Horse Report On Line had another record setting year in 2005 with 18,333,476 hits, averaging over 350,000 hits per week. The busiest week of the year was during the second week of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration when the site had 711,254 hits and totaled 1,334,632 for the two weeks of the show.

This represents an increase of over 5,300,000 hits in 2005 over 2004 – over 102,487 per week or an increase of 41% showing the growing strength of the Internet.

The Report currently has 12,343 registered users whose owners report interest in 15 different breeds with 11,060 listing the Tennessee Walking Horse as their breed of preference. The two next largest breeds represented are Racking Horses and Spotted Horses.

The Report High Point program, the Riders’ Cup, as well as a dramatic surge in posters on the message boards, drove renewed interest to the site. As always, horse show results, the calendar and news sections attracted heavy volume.

The Report will be announcing several additions to the site as well as a number of other enhancements this year.

A new automated classified advertising section allows online users to place their own ad in the classified section of the web site as well as in the print edition of Walking Horse Report.

Judges’ cards will be available online from all 2006 shows which are judged by a panel of judges. These will be archived in a special section of the web site where users can research ties from 2006 and select shows from 2005.

A special new section of the web site, Sales In Motion, will be launched in 2006. This special new section will be a multi-breed sales resource. Buyers can search the database by breed, sex, age, and various other criteria to find the horses that are for sale across the country that meet their criteria. Buyers can see pedigrees, photographs, and three video clips of their prospective purchases. Sellers can pay a reasonable one-time fee to showcase their horse to buyers across the country until the horse sells, without time limit. This exciting new section has been in development for over a year and will launch in early 2006.

More new features are in development, as the Walking Horse Report continues to strive to be your most reliable source of information in the Walking Horse industry.
