Past AHP Conferences

One of the first programs that American Horse Publications established was to offer its members an educational seminar. AHP Equine Media Conferences have been held all over the United States from Washington, D.C. to Seattle, from Amarillo to Park City. No matter the destination, the members gather to learn, to network, and to have fun in some pretty amazing places.


AHP Equine Media Conferences Since 1970

What started out as a gathering of equine publishers evolved into a one day seminar held in conjunction with the American Horse Council Convention in Washington, DC. By the mid 80’s, AHP had branched out to hold its own annual conferences including a winter seminar until 1995.

“I’ve attended every conference since 1975. Each one of them holds a unique memory for me from meeting “Dallas” star Patrick Duffy in 1984 to holding the awards ceremony in a movie studio in 2000 to meeting the napkin folding king in New Orleans. But the most important memories are the AHP members who I have, and will continue, to travel to these conferences with me.”

2017: AHP Saddle Up for Scottsdale

“The 2017 AHP conference was the best one yet! As someone in sales, the networking is phenomenal and topics this year gave me a lot to take home and build from. I go every year looking for that one connection and this year there are too many to count. Can’t wait for 2018.”
– Emily Alberti, Paulick Report

2016: May the Horse Be With You

“May The Horse Be with You is certainly my favorite of the seminars I’ve attended. The keynote address really had me energized for the rest of the sessions, and each session provided me with the fodder to take on 2016 and the future with confidence.”
– Kelsey Pecsek, Managing Editor, Quarter Horse News, Texas

2015: Tally-Ho at the Alamo

“If the only thing I did at the AHP seminar was network, it would be well worth the price of admission. But there is oh so much more! Lots of great speakers and presentations, interesting out-of-industry keynote speaker, and something for everyone no matter your involvement in the industry. Can’t wait for next year!”
– Kim Brown, EquiManagement/Stable Management

2011: Hoofprints in the Sand Seminar

“I love being a member of AHP! It seems more than just a “group”…it’s made me feel like being part of an “alumni”…where we return every year for a reunion to not only learn more about our industry but to socialize in person.”
– Denise Branco, Author

2006: It’s A Horse World After All Seminar

Many thanks for all your fabulous organization and assistance leading up to and during the AHP convention last weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed the event – better networking than ever, and I loved the team-building exercise – I am so glad I was able to do that!
