What is the AHP Equine Media Conference?

American Horse Publications (AHP) has held an annual conference for its members since the early 70s. The three-day equine media event is jam-packed with educational sessions, special events, and the announcement of the AHP Equine Media Awards.

Sessions cover publishing, journalism, visual media, revenue building, marketing, professional development and more. The conference is the number one place in the equine industry to network with equine media professionals and AHP members.

Who attends?

The AHP Equine Media Conference is a members-only event. Attendees include equine media professionals, publishers, equine-related businesses and organizations, and students pursuing a career in equine media.

The conference is an opportunity to connect with professionals in the equine media industry in both a casual and professional environment. Not only do members have a chance to renew relationships, but they also exchange fresh ideas and make key contacts.


The networking is invaluable and the knowledgeable presenters are the best in the business.”
DEBBIE LOUCKS, Monty Roberts Join Up International, Business Nonprofit Member

When and where?

The annual event rotates throughout the United States. In 2021, the conference will be held on September 16-18 at the Westin Dallas/Fort Worth Airport in Irving, Texas. In 2022, the event will be held on May 12-14 at the Marriott Griffin Gate Resort in Lexington, Kentucky.


I always walk away from the conference with at least one new tool to use and
new friendships to keep me grounded.”
