The Rider began 50 years ago as The Canadian Western Rider, the first western discipline horse publication in Canada. In 1994 we merged with our other publications, The Canadian Quarter Horse Journal and The English Rider, which we launched in 1990. The Rider has special English, Western, Quarter Horse and general sections, many interesting columns, coming events, Business and Service Directories, and a real estate section. The Rider covers all English and Western disciplines plus Quarter Horse Racing, Driving and various other breeds and disciplines. The Rider is distributed through subscriptions, through the memberships of our 9 official association partners and through 280 tack and feed stores.
