Write for Horse Rookie

We help equestrians of all levels (especially rookies) answer common questions, make informed decisions, and have more fun with their horses. If you have deep knowledge on an equestrian topic, along with solid writing skills, consider submitting a guest post for our blog.

Though guest posts are unpaid,* this is a great chance to expand your readership!

*We donate to the minority-focused nonprofit of your choice for every guest post by an equestrian of color.

How it Works:

Step #1

Email chiefrookie@horse-rookie.local with the following information: 

  • Name
  • Website/blog
  • Brief summary of your equestrian experience and areas of expertise*
  • 3-5 Article ideas (We do not accept content previously published elsewhere.)

*Or, you’re welcome to write a Letter to My Rookie Self. In that case, simply email your letter to us!

Step #2

If you’re a good fit, we’ll respond with 3 article topics that align with your background and interests, as well as our overall site content goals. You choose the one you like best. 

Step #3

We provide a short article outline for your chosen topic. Once you’re done writing, email it back to us for editing.

If you include images for your article, we require written proof of permission to use them.

Note: You’re welcome to include 2-3 links to your blog throughout the article. You can also link within your author bio.

Step #4

We polish and format your piece, then we send you a link when it’s been published. We’ll also provide social media graphics you can use to promote your article on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook.

Step #5 (Required)

Write a short “blog teaser” on your website that links* to your full article on Horse Rookie. (Here’s an example.)

Note: In some cases, the blog teaser requirement may be substituted with a Horse Rookie guest post on your website. Let us know if you’d like to discuss this option! 

*Link must be do-follow.

Thank you in advance for sharing your time and talents with Horse Rookie readers. #knowledgeishorsepower
