The goal of The Iberian Horse, is to bring interesting, and educational editorial pieces to our members, as well as recognize the achievements of our members and their wonderful horses. It is also a wonderful platform for advertising for things like stallions at stud or horses for sale. The Publication committee is always on the look out for quality editorial content, and welcomes submissions to be considered for inclusion in the magazine.
The IALHA produces three paper-copy magazines each year. Issue #1 will be mailed by July. Issue #2 will be mailed by October. Issue #3 will be mailed by March. Issue #3 is our “Year in Review”, as well as a Directory. The Year in Review and directory features Stallions, Farms/Ranches, Trainers and the Membership Directory.
As of 2018, the IALHA approved adding ad space on our website that is connected to an ad purchase in the The Iberian Horse. With our website averages 65,000 views and 20,000 individual users per year, so your ad will be in front of more faces than just the IALHA members. Ads are also shared on the IALHA and The Iberian Horse Magazine Facebook pages. Combined, those pages have over 9,000 followers, reach over 365,000, and engage over 25,000.
The Iberian Horse History:
Dating back to the early 2000s, our publication was originally called The Andalusian Horse. However, the name was changed when the Board of Directors of the International Andalusian and Lusitano Horse Association and the Foundation for the Pure Spanish Horse announced in 2016 that they would be working together to jointly publish our magazine.
Due to the joint venture of the two organizations, the magazine became known as, “The Iberian Horse”. The change of name was supported by the Board of both organizations as a way to be inclusive of all the horses represented by both organizations. The jointly-published magazine allowed members of both groups, who previously had to split their advertising dollars between publications, to provide a one-fee opportunity for promotion. That collaboration allowed us to bring members of both organizations the high-quality print publications that so many have treasured over the years. The collaboration continued until the end of 2018, at which time the FPSH decided not to continue with a magazine.
The IALHA has continued to provide its members with this fabulous perk, as it is a way to promote our horses and members, provide education, and keep members informed of critical information concerning the association and the services that it offers.
