N. Oxford, MA - Thursday, January 21, 2015 – Due to popular demand, Equine Journal announces the revival of its popular monthly calendar listings, which will start with the April 2016 issue and continue in future months as well. The monthly calendar listings will replace the annual Dateline: Guide to Events that was previously published alongside the magazine’s April issue.
“We’re really excited to be bringing back our monthly calendar listings,” says Elisabeth Gilbride, Executive Editor and General Manager of Equine Journal. “Although the annual Dateline: Guide to Equine Events will no longer be published, we are reviving the monthly calendar listings, as many event organizers had stated that they preferred we publish their events within the monthly magazine. That way, if a date changes, or an impromptu horse show or clinic takes place, we have more time to help them promote it throughout the year.”
As a special benefit to clients, Equine Journal will be giving all advertisers who reserve a quarter page ad or larger promoting their event a free calendar listing. Calendars listings can also be purchased separately, or additionally, at the low rate of $50 each.
Equine Journal affiliate clubs will also receive free calendar listings throughout the year, and members of affiliate clubs will receive a 10% discount on any listings and/or advertisements purchased.
To learn more information on how to place a calendar listing within Equine Journal, or to find out how to make your club an Equine Journal affiliate, call 508-987-5886 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

On a night dedicated to the horse, two special athletes were recognized for their excellence in 2015 during the USEF's Year-End Awards Gala.
