"Some people think AHP membership is only for equine publications, and that is not true. It has been invaluable to me as an equine industry consultant. Receiving the industry news and press releases submitted by members each month lets you keep your finger on the pulse of what's going on in the industry in a way that no other source can. And although I have not yet attended the annual seminar, the webinars and educational resources offered on their website provide excellent learning opportunities on topics of interest to equine professionals. In general, membership is value-packed and I have been recommending it to my clients and business associates for over 10 years."
LISA DERBY ODEN, Blue Ribbon Consulting, Individual member
"AHP has been an invaluable asset to our creative and productive growth over the years. I've learned so much about creative journalism, display and distribution both digitally and in print, and am proud to be a member of such a progressive organization that helps authors, publishers and individuals grow with the industry."
KAREN TAPPENDEN, Holistic Horse Media, Publishing Media member
"AHP is an excellent group of professionals committed to high quality equine journalism. The annual seminar provides the opportunity to meet editors and freelancers face-to-face, while the opportunity to submit three press releases each month allows us to reach a current list of targeted contacts who are interested in receiving and publishing our news."
CHRISTY LANDWEHR, Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA), Business Nonprofit member
"Joining AHP was a great move for Eastern Hay. Our press releases are sent out promptly and have been picked up by major players such as 'The Holistic Horse,' 'Julie Goodnight Horsemanship,' veterinarians, and the University of California at Davis. I'm very happy with the benefits our membership has brought us."
CHRIS JOHNSON, Eastern Hay, Business member
“Everybody at AHP was tremendously welcoming and as a new member I really felt accepted into the group. NSLM is a full research library with over 27,000 books, historical periodicals, and 73 archive collections of photos, letters, and more. Many of our resources date back to the 17th and 16th Centuries. We run many educational programs throughout the year, and are always interested to learn more about and work with other equestrian organizations whenever possible. AHP membership has been an awesome way to get the word out about our collections, programs, and content and it has been a great way to build partnerships within the equestrian community.”
JOHN P. CONNOLLY, National Sporting Library & Museum, Business Nonprofit member
“AHP is worth the money in just receiving all of the press releases that are sent out every month.”
CHERYL ERPELDING, Founder of California Riding Magazine and Sales Manager at MPM Publications, Publishing Media member
“A former student member, I was afforded the opportunity to make valuable industry connections via the annual AHP conference, the AHP internship program, and the Student Award Contest. My first freelance assignments, and later my first job in the media industry, came from connections I made through AHP.”
JESSICA HEIN, Director of Publications for the American Paint Horse Association (APHA), Publishing Media member
"We've gotten the best return on investment through AHP. We received a couple of key editorial placements from editors as well as general inquiries. Being new to the industry, I've learned so much from the daily press releases about what's going on, events that would be good for us to attend, and organizations we may want to affiliate with."
MARILYN BOCKSTAHLER, N'Dura Hoof, Business member
"I don't know the dollar value I would assign to benefits my publication has reaped from AHP membership, but I know it would be at least 10 times the annual dues."
WARREN WILSON, California Horsetrader, Publishing Media member
“The AHP seminar offers something for absolutely everyone. It is a fantastic opportunity to learn and enhance your own personal skillset as well as network and form relationships with professionals from all facets of the equine media industry. AHP and my experiences at the seminar have enhanced my career beyond what I could have ever envisioned and have provided me with a professional family and lasting friendships. It's a must-attend!”
CATIE STASZAK, The Chronicle of the Horse, 2014 AHP Student Award Winner
"Every equine journalist, whether involved in books, magazines, newspapers, or online media, needs to attend this seminar."
LISA WYSOCKY, Author, Individual member
“It is the intangible pleasure of connecting with one's peers and employers, face to face that gives value to the seminar experience.”
