Its a Life Long Love!


WARHorses is a community of horse enthusiasts. We are mostly women but men are welcome. We are a bit “older” but we encourage horse lovers of any age to join us. Some of us grew up with horses and others never had one. Regardless, we all have a lifetime passion for them. In the past, life’s responsibilities, family and careers, have tempered our horse time, but now we strive to make up for lost time. We maybe driven to compete at shows or we maybe content to comb out a tangled mane. We find pleasure riding along a wooded trail as much as picking clean our horse’s stall. We will make time for horses in our lives, we need it, horses are part of our DNA. We are passionate, we are spirited, we are wonderful, we are WARHorses. Please join us!

  • Information. We strive to assimilate and originate helpful information for “older” equestrians. We’re don’t bounce as well as we used to, and that’s ok, we’re here to offer instruction.
  • Inspiration. There are many ways to enjoy horses, we offer options then encourage you to find the means that best suits your needs. We will be cheering you on!
  • Laughs. You need a good sense of humor if you spend any amount of time around horses. We prefer laughing to crying!

Are you ready to advertise with WARHorses? Let’s start a conversation.

Working with WARHorses’ publisher Melanie Eberhardt to promote my horse-centric novel, Ephemeral, has proven an excellent partnership. Melanie’s creativity, collaborative spirit, and marketing savvy (banner ads, social media posts, editorial review, etc.) have resulted in nice upticks in sales and increased exposure in the highly competitive space of romantic/literary fiction. Her energy, focus, and passion for what she does shine through in her drive to create fun, relevant, and strategic ad campaigns that interest and engage the WARHorses community. It’s like having a trusted barn buddy in the advertising world—highly recommend!
