    13. How would I be able to get an older issue of Horses Illustrated. I would like the issue about how to make your own stalls. I don’t remember which month it was.

    14. Id like to know why Canadians pay over twice as much as anyone in the States? Our dollar is currently stronger that yours and I know for certain it isn’t that much more expensive to mail things to us. Please explain.

    15. Hello My name is Correina Mcneice and i think i take really good care of my pony sylvester or my hero that he deserves to be put into young rider please please please email me back with results <3

    16. How do you get the cool halters on the horses, the neat backgrounds (not the ones that have stall pasture and show!), and the manes and tails to looks special? I’ve seen many AMAZING ones and can’t find anything but the stall pasture and show backgrouds!

    17. What are the Whinny Warz? I saw on my horse’s profile that he was a Whinny Warz winner, but I can’t find that on the site.

    18. i ride a 21 yr old arabian gelding. i ride him ALOT, but feed him plenty.yet he still loses ALOT of weight. we can see his ribs clearly now. wat am i doing wrong?! if u hav the answer to my question, please email me at capitalgains21@mail.com thanx!

    19. ANSWER TO KAITLYN# YOU SIMPLY JUST MAKE THE PROFILE LIKE YOU WOULD FOR A LIVING HORSE EXCEPT USING PAST WORDS AND PUTTING IN MEMORY OF BY NAME. CHEERS!

    20. I am trying to register. Every time I go to registration page and answer the question “Are you at least 13 years old” (I am 57). I answer yes and then can go no further. I am trying to sign up for horse grooming. I am currently a dog groomer. I have called several times and no one can help me. They send me to technical support which is for your employees only. This is very frustrating. Also there is no way to contact you other than regular mail.

    21. I spent 50,000 points on a miniture halter and they said that they would contact me to ask me which size and color i wanted well it’s been about 3 or 4weeks and i would think that they would contact me by now. What do i do? Do i wait more or contact them? this has happend before on fishchannel.

    22. How do I find out who is Horse of the Month? There appears to be no link or banner or anything that allows me to see it. The Horse of the Day is readily seen at the right of the page, but every month I never know who the winner is. Can you help?

    23. Just a quick question, anyone who wants to answer! Can you delete your account once you make one? I’m new to this horse club thing, and haven’t joined yet. I want to decide if I like it first. Any one who knows, please answer! Thanks.:) And could I please get an answer right away? Thanks again.:)

    24. Hi Philomena,
      Yes, you can have your account deleted. You just need to send an email in to channelabuse@bowtieinc.com and let us know that you would like your account deleted. You also can have an account to participate in Club Horse quizzes and other activities to earn points to redeem great horse prizes. You don’t necessarily have to create a horse profile in order to be in Club Horse.

    25. Thank you for your answer,Club Horse Moderator,CA. It was helpful, and I will ask more questions if I happen to have any more. Thank you again!

    26. Thank you for your answer,Club Horse Moderator,CA. It was helpful, and I will ask more questions if I happen to have any more. Thank you again!

    27. I can’t view the videos. I have windows 8 and the latest version of adobe flash player. Can you tell me what I need to view them? Thanks

    28. I have completed Session 200 of the Horse Health and I cannot find my diploma. I have started session 300 and printed session 100 diplomams but cannot find session 200.

    29. I wanted to read one article about Cow horse boxing. The site shows the article in an April 2008 issue. I signed up to join Horse Club thinking the article would be readable after I did it,but it still does nothing!! Very frustrating, misleading and annoying.

    30. I have subscribed to HORSE ILLUSTRATED, but I want the magazine to go to my Grand daughter. I can not find an address to submit the address change to HORSE ILLUSTRATED. Can anyone help me?

    31. If you already put your order in, you would need to contact the magazine, if you didn’t order yet, change your address to your granddaughter, by going under your profile and using her address.

    32. I want to buy the magazine in the store but can’t find a place without driving all over town. You don’t have a phone number to ask, so how else do I get this magazine without a subscription?

    33. i login and when ever i try to go to forum page it opens in new link and says to login. when i try to login it says incorrect password or login. why is this doing it only for the forums?

    34. I was enrolled in Horse Health College session 300 and my 300 session has disappeared. Could someone please restore or tell me how to sign up for session 300 again. I have completed session 100 and 200.

    35. Hello, horse channel recently had loading issues and I could not sign in. As a result, my points expired. Is there someone can contact regarding this or is there any way I can get my points back? I had over 39,000 so I am fairly disappointed (especially since I tried horse channel nearly every day and it never worked.)

    36. I was thinking that horse profiles that have been active for 50 days should be removed cause they just sit there and do nothing.

    37. I lost my horses profile and cannot login with the same horse profile. Is it lost forever, will I have to create a new one? I’m using the same e-mail & password, I cant figure it out. Any advice?

    38. I tried to change my address but do sure it went through.
      Old: Donna Hope, 1847 Mountain Sage Place Highlands Ranch, CO 80126
      NEW: Donna Hope, C/O 27871 Sheffield, Mission Viejo, CA 92692
      Donna Hope, 10/26/2016, Cell: 714-797-3357

    39. I cannot view any videos, though I registered and gave you my email. Everything is in text only, with the option to print, but NO videos. What’s wrong?

    40. I bought a subscription for my daughter and the first magazine came to my house. I know I put her address down as the recipient. How do I check this.
