Report Tops 13 Million In 2004!



The Walking Horse Report Online had another record setting year in 2004 with 13,004,127 hits, averaging over 250,000 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 582,413 hits and totaled 1,080,510 for the two weeks of the show.

The Report currently has 11,677 registered users whose owners report interest in 15 different breeds with 10,659 listing the Tennessee Walking Horses as their breed of preference. The two next largest breeds represented are Racking Horses and Spotted Horses.

This year is off to an even more impressive start as the first week of the year saw 231,673 hits compared to 42,439 a year ago. That’s an average of 33,096 per day from 11,863 viewers - almost 1,700 unique users every day of the week.

The Report High Point program, as well as a dramatic surge in posters on the message board, 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.

“We are very excited about 2005 on Walking Horse Report online. We are making lots of improvements to the site. We are introducing a new horses for sale section with videos, and a new classified ad service,” said Publisher Christy Howard Parsons.

Ashlea Wheelon has been promoted to WHR Online Editor and is also excited about the site. Jan Ontiveros, the Internet results coordinator, is working with horse show managers to provide more real time results than ever before.

“I’m looking forward to working with horse show officials to get all show results posted to the web site as soon as possible. I’m also looking forward to working with Ashlea as she makes the transition to Online Editor. Good luck to all of us this year!”said Ontiveros.

“ I am very excited about my new position at The Walking Horse Report. Our Web site is already going through changes that are going to make a large impact in 2005. My objective is to make WHR Online your one stop shop for all your horse needs,” said Ashlea Wheelon, Online Editor.
