The Colorado Horse Forum started as an online community dedicated to equines in Colorado in 2007. We have blossomed into a fully functional equine blog with over 11,000 users in 2018, while still retaining an online community with over 8,900 current members (and growing). We also offer a free online calendar as well as an online classifieds section.
We love horses, donkeys, mules and more… We cover topics from boarding, training, trail riding, showing, equine events, horse health, product reviews, and more. Most of all we offer a fun friendly environment to get to know other equine enthusiasts in Colorado and share information through.
We require no contract and you can advertise on a month to month basis or commit to a year if you prefer (receive a discount!).

In every sponsorship opportunity we offer, we provide tracking links for your ads. What this means – if you utilize Google Analytics or another quality website analytics tracking medium, you will be able to see the click to your site from your advertising partnership with us.

Blog post sponsorship is a great way to build trust with the website visitors, as they will see you as an expert on the topic and think of you the next time they have a need for your specialty. We limit this to one sponsored post per week, and will not allow a direct competitor* to advertise within 4 weeks of your post.
