September 25, 2003 -- The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) is pleased to announce the addition of EQUUS magazine to its team of Educational Partners. The Educational Partners program is a group of equine-industry businesses dedicated to providing resources and education through the AAEP to veterinarians and horse owners to improve the health and welfare of the horse.
"EQUUS and the AAEP share a mutual goal: providing horse owners with quality information on how to best care for the horse," said David L. Foley, AAEP executive director. "Our new relationship is based on a strong dedication to the health of the horse, and from this we expect many beneficial initiatives to grow."
With a strong tradition of support for the AAEP's work, EQUUS previously partnered with the AAEP in conducting educational seminars for horse owners and has bolstered the promotional efforts for the organization's annual Horseman's Day event. EQUUS also sponsors the popular Cyber Caf?? at the AAEP Annual Convention.
"All of us at EQUUS Magazine are excited and proud to become an Educational Partner with the AAEP. We look at this new relationship as an opportunity to further our mutual goal of promoting the welfare of horses and to provide additional benefits for horse owners," said Susan Harding, vice president and group publishing director of the PRIMEDIA Equine Network.
Since it was founded in 1977, EQUUS has been known for its accurate and accessible articles about equine physiology, behavior and care. Now part of the PRIMEDIA Equine Network, EQUUS continues to be a leader in providing award-winning content to committed horse owners. PRIMEDIA's Web site, EquiSearch.com, is a leader in providing equine news and information on the Internet.
The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the horse. Currently, AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its nearly 7,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
