    Eclectic Horseman is not just a magazine, it is a equine community which connects you to what you are looking for. I discovered EH a few years ago. Love the publication. Found a clinic over 1000 miles away that I just had to attend with an iconic horseman. My wife and I trailered to the clinic and learned so much, that we just did it again this year. Mind you, we’ve been a student of the horse for 30 years each.
    After this last clinic, I asked this horseman if he would consider taking my mare for the winter and expose her to his training. After making sure he could fit it in to his schedule, the deal was made. She will be exposed to day work, ranch roping, and the work it takes to do the job.
    If it had not been for EH, I would have never known about the clinic, never personally met this icon, and my horse would not be in the incredible position she is in. An absolute honor to have this true cowboy ride my mare.
    Thanks you Eclectic Horseman!!!

    Great magazine. Tons of detailed information on several subjects. Had been looking at the website for a while but wanted the detailed info in the magazine. Can’t wait to get each new copy.

    You can never stop learning and these magazines make it easy- great writers and topics in every issue!
    I am so glad that there is a magazine designed to share horsemanship (dressage, buckaroo, vaquero whatever you would like to call it) and focuses/designed for learning, not filled with ads or questionable care and tactics. Overall, each article is truly a small version of a book with varying topics to fit anyone’s level of horsemanship.
    This issue imparticular was great to read! I love the last part of Donnette Hick’s article on dear Milly. I also enjoyed that there were some random-but related articles thrown in the mix such as “Saddle Fallacies” Gives someone a chance to not get overwhelmed with all the great information, but still as something fun to read. I also enjoyed “Getting with the Feet”, a concept that I am til working on. Luckily, the magazine is great at explaining these sometimes abstract ideas so I feel that I am in good hands.
    This is a magazine subscription that I see myself having for a very long time.

    One of the best horse oriented magazines I have ever read. I really enjoy all of the training articles. I couldn’t believe how quick my first issue showed up after I subscribed online, especially with living in Canada. I have definitely told lots of friends about Eclectic Horseman.

    I look forward to receiving my Eclectic Horseman every time it comes out. All the information is so valuable to me and my horse. I was lucky enough to see Buck Brannaman’s clinic in Lexington, VA a couple weeks ago, and all the exercises the participants were doing had been featured in the most recent issue of Eclectic, step by step. My friend and I went home and got out the magazine and practiced the exercises, and our horses became much more light and responsive. It’s the only horse magazine I read. I recommend it to all my horse friends. Thank you!

    I have been a subscriber for a few years and I have throughly enjoyed receiving and absorbing all the wisdom contained within the Eclectic Horseman. A friend recommended it many years ago, and it was a great decision to sign up as a subscriber. I feel it connects me from home here in Western Australia, with like minded horse people across the globe. It is a wonderful feeling.

    I love my Eclectic Horseman subscription! I enjoy reading the different stories and articles that pertain to horsemanship. I saw Buck Brannaman a few years ago and was emersed in his logic and the way he could communicate with various horses in different disciplines.
    The articles in the magazine are very informative. I enjoy looking at the pictures that show or correlate with what the trainer is trying to teach.
    The variation of the different articles keeps me intrigued.
    Thank you, Emily!

    Dear Emily, Firstly, thank you and your family for the great effort that is put into every issue of the magazine and Dvd.
    I would like to remind all readers of this wonderful informative magazine to store their copies carefully, as when the years pass by our knowledge and understanding grows. What we read and thought we understood ten years ago suddenly takes on a deeper meaning for us, joining more dots and enabling us to see the whole horse better than before.
    I return to back issues time and time again, today I looked up, How Horses Work by Deb Bennett PH.D, learning more about the importance of the Thoracic Sling
    . As we travel further down the road of Horsemanship the back issues of Eclectic Horseman Magazine and Gazette are an indispensable learning tool. What more can be said. Simply the Best. Thank you for your dedication.

    A friend recommended Eclectic Horseman and I am so glad I subscribed. The articles are so informative and detailed. The recent article Getting with the Feet is so good, it is really helping me get that “Feel” and move with my horse step by step. Thank you for a great magazine!

    EH is truly a unique offering and is so true to the spirit of refining and elevating its audience’s horsemanship. It is clear that the publisher has a true passion for producing and distributing what likely amounts to a labor of love. We all benefit…the horses and their riders! Thank you & Mahalo!!

    I absolutely love Eclectic Horseman magazine! Emily does a fantastic job putting the articles together and the topics are always very interesting and applicable to good horsemanship. I travel most the year and I am always excited to check the mailbox when I get home and look forward to this magazine. This magazine is a must read for anyone interested in making bridle horses and for anyone dedicated to great horsemanship. Thanks again Emily! I appreciate all you do.

    I am so happy to have found Eclectic Horseman! I haven’t even looked at a horse magazine in a very long time- none seemed to appeal to me anymore. Until now! I really feel that I can use the information in the articles to get things going better with my horse. I can’t wait to get the next issue!

    I am part way through a three year subscription to your magazine. I live in the UK where there are many equestrian magazines but none to match yours. I consider it an investment in my horsemanship. I read and re-read each issue, use the back issues as a reference library.
    The quality of the contributors is superb and the photography excellent. My particular favourites are the clinic features and the training/ Colt starting articles.
    I love to get home and find an issue on my doormat, it never disappoints, keep up the good work!

    I absolutely love this magazine and get excited when I see it in the mailbox. Eclectic Horseman is definitely a cut above other mainstream horse magazines. The information isn’t what you would find in other publications. It goes so much more in depth and quality then what you find elsewhere. Keep up the great work! I plan tol keep this subscription for a long time.

    The Electic Horseman is the ONLY Natural Horsemanship magazine I know of. I love the articles and excellent demonstrative photos that accompany them. I received this subscription as a gift but will renew it!!!

    Thank you for this magazine. The only improve the I can think of is to receive it every month!

    I love Eclectic Horseman Magazine. It helps me keep “in touch” with the horsemanship methods of people I greatly appreciate and admire. It keeps me on track with my horsemanship and where some events are happening and when and any news that I may have missed . Keep uo the great work. Long Live Eclectic Horseman!!

    Eclectic Horseman magazine goes right to the source for informative and timely articles packed with very usable information. If I could only receive ONE equine magazine this would be the one. The articles by clinic participants are very well done. Showing their experiences gives one reason to participate. The magazine is well laid out with all the adds in the back of the magazine. I have given subscriptions to my friends who love them just as much as I do. Back issues are keepers and never gotten rid of. Thanks for such an awesome magazine.

    so much wonderful information. A variety of sources that help explain things so well. I find myself going back to past magazines and having a better understanding of the information.

  22. Rated 5 out of 5


    I have been subscribed to Eclectic Horseman since 2001, and will definitely be renewing my subscription when it comes due. What I appreciate most is that the content of the magazine is geared towards helping us humans to better understand and work with our horses, and that the well-being of the horse is always held first and foremost. I also like that Eclectic Horseman promotes “discourse between the disciplines” and encourages us to think and look outside of the box, and to be more open minded as a result. Thanks for the great magazine and I look forward to reading Eclectic Horseman for many years to come!

    I just renewed my subscription for 3 years! and got a great magazine and a free cap! I love everything about the magazine from the paper it’s printed on to the great articles and pics!! They are a great source of information from history to training! I’ve kept all my back issues and also use the handy online archive article section. I really enjoy articles by Buck Brannaman and anything written by Tom Moates. I also like getting an email letting me know when to expect my next issue, and love getting emails period as they are loaded with information also!!

    We love this magazine for the articles, photos, and intelligent horsemanship essays. The products in mercantile are all desirable and reflect our attitudes toward horsemanship: Always open to learning. Of course your horse can teach you a lot but whatever he can’t quite express to you will be in an old or new article in Eclectic Horseman!

    EH is a beautiful magazine. While I have the digital copies of the back issues of Eclectic Horseman and, I’m so grateful for all of the rich, important content and easy-to-search format, the actual paper magazine is a work of art. The photography and articles are engaging and informative. Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful product!

    This is the only equine magazine we subscribe to these days..It’s the only one worth the time to read! Information is good for all horsemen and really helps me examine the best ways to get along with my horse and tasks that we do together.

    By far the best “horse” magazine out there! I have always cheated and let my wife do the ordering of magazines, I won’t mention any names, but I did not find them worth the money, until I found yours! The articles are well written, photos are amazing and the knowledge inside is top notch. Every issue leaves me hungry for more. I would complain about it being bimonthly, but that gives me plenty of time to reread and study each article more thoroughly. Thank yall so much for all the hard work and time you put into each issue, it shows! Looking forward to the next issue!

    I just love this magazine! Its very refreshing, its packed with actual useful articles and RELIABLE educational information about horsemanship etc., not fluff.

    I absolutely love the Electric Horseman magazines, I am from British Columbia, Canada and first heard of them at the Legacy of Legends in Fort Worth, Texas when my Mom and I went in 2015! I thoroughly enjoy them as well as the gazette dvd’s! I highly recommend them to everyone, I love that there is so much info in the articles, and there’s something in each one for everyone! :) Thankyou for having such a great magazine! :) I also love the layout, the look and the print!

    hastingfarm2- June 6, 2018
    This issue, and all the issues I’ve read, provide levels of information helpful to where you’re at in your horsemanship. When I first began these methods of training, I learned at that level, but now the words mean something at a completely new level. For example, Getting With the Feet Part 1- the Hangerman analogy, brings a very basic concept to light whereas in the past I might have skipped over some of those images, focusing on what was basic to me at that time.

    The articles are refreshing compared to other horse magazines and I love the info from professionals in various disciplines. I could recommend anyone who wants their horse to be a happy partner read this issue and subscribe to the series.

    This is my favorite equestrian magazine subscription. It provides very interesting, helpful and diverse information to help me better my horsemanship. It is a great quality magazine, with beautiful photos and high quality paper which really adds to the reading experience. I look forward to the magazine and often end up re-reading issues because the articles are so in depth and I get a lot from them at different stages of working with horses. I would definitely recommend it to other horse people!

    Eclectic Horseman has my and my horse’s best interests at heart. I trust the content. The philosophy is in line with how I like to work with my horse – fairly and respectfully. With each issue, I feel part of a community of horse folks who are also learning for life. I reference the articles frequently and enjoy the Facebook page, where articles are re-posted. I always go back in and re-read as many as I can. Each time there is a thing or two that makes a little more sense as my knowledge grows.

    Living in Spain and not having at hand great horsemen to learn from the Eclectic Horseman magazine and Gazette are a gift from heaven. My deepest gratitude goes to Emily and her family for their dedication and enabling us to have the knowledge of great horsemen in our homes to become more aware of many aspects of horsemanship and life that otherwise we would not realize. This magazine has changed my life for the better in all aspects. Thank you again from Spain.

    Every magazine has something you can work on with detailed descriptions and photos from so many amazing Horsemen and Horsewomen. You may not get to clinics or if you need re-enforcing on what you learned this magazine will help you.
    When I’m working my horses I will often have an article nearby to refer to, an example: Pefecting lateral flexion (issue no.86) very clearly illustrates and explains the proper elements of lateral flexion and helped my horse and I get off to a good start. Keep up the great work and format of this magazine!

    I look forward to the ECLECTIC HORSEMAN for the wealth of knowledge within the covers. Speaking of covers it is so nice to see people on the covers that I have met or who are well known by reputation to me. The contributer’s are varied covering a wide selection of topics all to do with producing sound confident horses. Deb Bennett with her university courses in a nutshell, Wendy Murdoch with her riding lessons, Martin Black of few words but each word counts. The many coloured pictures in the articles are informative and a pleasure to view. I have given this magazine as gifts and will give more subscriptions as gifts. I consider it a gift to my friends, but more than that it is a gift to the horses.

    Only the best! I have been a subscriber since issue #1 and have never been disappointed with this magazine. Practical and informative, this magazine delivers information that is truly useful. Unlike so much of the “fluff” you find in other magazines and some online sites, EH never fails to provide information that I can make use of in my horsemanship journey. I share articles with everyone and anyone who will listen to me. This magazine has been a tremendous support to my husband and I as there are not many who effectively practice good horsemanship in our area. We always feel encouraged by the content. Thank you!

    I received a gift subscription for Christmas. In the two issues I’ve learned some interesting things about varied topics. The “Feeling What a Horse Needs” photo series is fantastic.

I wish the magazine was twice as long and came twice as often!

    I look forward to receiving each issue! The information in each issue covers a range of knowledge and is presented in a easy to read format. I found the recent article on how to choose quality/trainable foals and how the mare has a large impact on her foal to be of personal relalvents to me, since I’m considering breeding a few of my mares. I am super glad I found Eclectic Horseman and recommend it for anyone searching to improve.

    A great source of education in the vaquero riding tradition. As a newcomer to the style Eclectic Horseman has been informative and inspiring. It comes recommended by an instructor I’ve worked with who is also a student of Buck Brannaman, so I knew I’d be getting quality content. I just wish each issue were longer!
