Horse Illustrated Magazine Wins at 2024 AHP Equine Media Awards

Horse Illustrated magazine has much to be proud of after receiving six American Horse Publications (AHP) Equine Media Awards during the 2024 AHP “Return to Horse Country” Conference on Saturday, May 18, 2024, in Lexington, Ky. Awards included a first place in both the Personal Column and Editorial Design categories.



“The team at Horse Illustrated is thrilled and honored to receive these prestigious awards—the undisputed ‘Oscars’ of our industry,” said Horse Illustrated Editor in Chief Holly Caccamise. “As always, it’s thanks to the tremendous talent of our freelance writers and photographers and our art director, who make the magazine a delight to read and look at from cover to cover. The hard work that AHP puts into the conference leading up to the awards is also worth mentioning, as it brings us lots of innovative ideas to energize our work over the next year until it’s time to meet up with our peers again!”
