The Horse is great for health related topics, but you can find all the information on their website.

Horse and Rider is good for people in Western disciplines, with lots of training articles. It also discusses health, scientific advancements in the horse industry, and horse and rider profiles. It also contains some good product reviews. I love the conformation column.

Equus is geared more toward the English rider, and is very similar to H&R.

My mom's main focus is trail riding, and she enjoys The Tral Rider.

I've read Horse Illustrated and Western Horseman, but I like the others I listed more.

I also read the Appaloosa Journal. Breed journals tend to have good training and health coverage.

I like horse illustrated I think it does a good enough overview of all the topics. I tried practical horseman but its really dressage and english riding focused. I found it not even focused on like beginner or intermediate levels but on advanced levels which my horse and I are not at. I like Trail rider but only the odd issue. The horse is good for health issues. If you have a specific style or event you want to do then you can get a magazine more directed towards that. If you are looking for a general horse magazine then horse illustrated is in my opinion the best option.

I get Equus and Dressage Today.

Equus focuses more on health topics, conformation, safety, etc, and I'd consider it pretty discipline-agnostic. I find it very interesting.

Dressage Today is, well, about dressage

I get the Horse, Equus, COTH, and horsedelval (local)

Hubby's grandma buys us a subscription to Western Horseman every year, its ok, every once in a while they have an article I enjoy.

I used to get Performance Horse, neat magazine if your into cowhorse and reining, tons of training articles.
Used to get Horse & Rider too, but haven't for years.
We get a couple others but they are more about ranching than anything else.

I love Dressage today, and what's kind of funny, I also get horse and rider even though I have never ridden Western. I like the training and health articles in there way better than any other magazine!

I ranch and do polo.

Practical Horseman offers me the most. Go figure.
