The world of the Arabian horse has changed significantly since 2005, when the first edition of The Arabian Magazine was published. That was a world where the internet was not as prevalent as it is now, and before the advent of Facebook, Twitter and other social media. In short – an era before the instant world became an expected part of everyday life.
With the advent of the digital world and also, ironically, the growing number of Arabian horse magazines available, we have decided that change is in order to not only make The Arabian Magazine more relevant, but also to celebrate what has always been at the heart of this publication – the breeders.
The Arabian Breeders’ Magazine launched in September 2016, a four-times a year publication, including a special edition brought out in time for the Paris World Championships. The focus will very much be on those features that so many of you have enjoyed over the years – the breeders, the horses, the history, the education. In depth interviews, pedigrees and photographs will be shared through the pages of The Arabian Breeders’ Magazine, and the newly focused publication will celebrate all that is great about the Arabian horse. Features will be sourced from a great team of new writers from around the world, as well as your favourite regular contributors.
Meanwhile, The Arabian Magazine Online will also be changing to reflect this new direction. A host of new features have been launched, with new writers providing views from around the world. It is The Arabian Magazine – online edition, that satisfies the immediate need for results, reports and photographs from the shows in real time. In addition, news and other items will be shared the moment it happens. However, with being a true Arabian Magazine, horses will be the main focus, and there is a monthly ‘cover horse’ to enjoy as well as features and other items of interest. To complete this new focus, online advertising will also be available to complete the experience and The Arabian Magazine – online edition will be available in a mobile-friendly version.
The Romance of the Arabian Horse has also now launched, an online blog celebrating those magical Arabian moments that burn into our very soul.
We are confident that through these platforms, we will continue to meet your expectations in providing you with the information that you need in order to keep you up to date with all that is the very best in the vast world of the Arabian horse.
While The Arabian Breeders’ Magazine is a bigger, glossier, coffee table publication compared to the previous magazine, the annual subscription price has been lowered – to £30 for the UK, £50 for Europe and £75 for the rest of the world. Subscription to The Arabian Magazine Online remains at £25 a year. For both publications, the price is £40/£60/£85 respectively. You will be able to purchase these from our shop as usual – http://www.thearabianmagazineshop.com/categories/magazine-subscriptions/subscriptions.html.
