Equestrian Professional's Member Benefits

Here at EquestrianProfessional.com, we're continually improving how we help our members. In addition to all the great benefits we've offered over the years, we've added some new features that will make using EquestrianProfessional.com faster and easier. 

"We help horse professionals do what they love to do - more profitably"


What's New

MP3 Library
We know as a busy horse professional you spend more time in the barn or the road than in front of your computer. That's why we're making it easier for you to take our great content with you. We have recently provided you with the option to download an MP-3 file of our webinars, hotline and master classes. Take us to go!


Member Spotlights

Our members rock the house! Equestrian Professional members include top horse professionals from nearly every breed and discipline and, while we can't showcase our entire 700+ members, we are excited to spotlight a few of them on our new Equestrian Professional Member Spotlight page! Do you have a success story you'd like to share, drop us a line at info@equestrianprofessional.com.


Press Release Publication

Do you have special announcement or other newsworthy event coming up? Let us help. As an EquestrianProfessional.com member, you can now publish your news directly on EquestrianProfessional.com. Need help writing a press release, no problem. Check out our “11 Press Releases Writing Tips for Horse Professionals” for pointers on writing a great press release. Of course all of this is included with your membership.


The Horse Business Hotline™horse business hotline
This is a fast paced Q&A that provides our members with a live forum to discuss horse business topics and issues. It gives our members hands on site support and regular access to a panel of horse industry experts.

The panel typically includes an equine attorney, equine tax and/or accounting specialists and equestrian marketing experts, plus a variety of guest panelists. From new laws that affect horse business owners to the latest marketing trends and everything in between, listeners gain valuable insights from a wide variety perspective.

The Horse Business Hotline takes place every other month and is always blazing with interesting topics, questions and debates.


Equestrian Professional's Master Classeshorse  business hotline
Our Master Classes enable us to provide our members with special in-depth workshops that specifically address individual equestrian market segments and horse business models.

Horse professionals' businesses are incredibly diverse. Not only are there a wide array of breeds and disciplines, but also the very structure of each business can differ greatly depending on the horse professional's area of expertise and target market. For example, a professional rider's business model differs greatly from a breeding farm's business model. Similarly, a riding school whose target market is new riders will need a very different marketing plan than a show barn that caters to experienced riders.

Master Classes take place every other month and feature an all-star line-up of successful horse business owners, equestrian athletes and mentors.
See the 2012 Horse Business Seminar Schedule for more information on upcoming events.


Social Media Boot Camphorse  business hotline
Social Media is the most powerful tool that the equine industry has ever had available to attract, educate and inspire customers and to bring "newbies" into the equestrian community.

Because we know how busy you are - We are providing a special new accelerated format! The course still consists of eight classes but the accelerated program enables you to complete the course in just over a week! And as an EquestrianProfessional.com member, you receive a significant discount off the price of the boot camp..


Help Desk

We've added a new feature that will help us better track and respond to your questions about the site. Once you submit a support ticket, you'll be able to track the progress and get instant updates of any changes.


Forum Enhancements

Our forums are a great place to connect with other professionals, get your questions answered, or just bounce ideas off other professionals. We've added a lot of new features to our forums.

  • Forum Points: We have a great group of members who are very willing to offer advice in our forums and we want to reward you for being active in our forums. You can now earn points for the amount of time you've been a member as well as quality of your forum posts. If you think another member has been really helpful, you can "reward" them by giving some of your own points to t hem for particularly helpful posts.
  • Forum Suggest: With an active forum, it's easy to miss a post or a response on the same topic you might be about to write. As you start typing a new post or reply, related forum posts are suggested to you at the bottom of their screen. That way you can easily see other posts that may be related to yours.
  • Post Type When you're typing a post or reply, you can choose to mark it as a: question, comment, suggestion or answer. Postings are color-coded based on the type of post you choose. This helps you quickly scan through a busy thread to find an answer or suggestion among many replies.
  • Forum Preview Thread Option - You can hover over topic subjects without clicking on them and preview box will pop up showing you the content of that forum thread. This allows you to quickly see which threads you are interested in reading without actually having to open up that forum thread.
One-on-One Get Started Help 
Annual members receive complimentary live “one-on-one” getting started session that can be used to ask questions about the site or its tools or as a mini private consulting session to address issues or particular questions you may have about your horse business.

Private Consulting  
There are some issues and business goals that are better addressed in a one-on-one private setting. For example: If your business is in serious financial trouble or - If you are starting a new business, developing a new product or service, or simply want to fast track your success - private consulting may be the answer. Annual members receive a free consulting session. Note: We only accept a very limited number of private consulting clients. So be sure to check availability before purchasing a consulting package.

Mastermind Groups 
A powerful tool to help you achieve your goals. The value of our site is not just the material on it but our members themselves. Our mastermind groups help our members connect with each other in order to establish groups of non-competing business owners who help each other obtain common and personal goals.

Group Coaching/Workshops 

Economical and highly effective! Group coaching is a great way to learn new skills, brainstorm solutions and get a jump-start to reach your goals. Group Coaching works exceptionally well (and is highly recommended) for our Mastermind Groups.
