1993, when Natalie Riehl started Rocky Mountain Rider in her
home, the magazine’s circulation was 5,000 copies distributed in 100
locations. Natalie developed a bi-monthly, all-breed horse publication that
included a blend of horse news, personal and historical stories, informational
articles, and a large calendar of equine events. By 1996, the one-person
business had grown and she hired several employees, moved into an office, and
began publishing monthly.
Rocky Mountain Rider Magazine continues with its varied editorial content and is
the number one source in the Northern Rockies for keeping horse owners up to
date on the region's equine issues — health, land-use, management, legal and
political. Each month, 14,000 copies of Rocky Mountain Rider reach readers
through 375+ distribution locations in 7 western states — and it is still free!
Rider’s website features current and
archived articles, business & stallion profiles of advertisers, an extended
calendar of events, extra news & health alerts, plus the Club Connection for
regional equine clubs and breed associations.
Natalie started the magazine, her pair of 16-hand, black mules were aged 5 and
6. They are now 22 and 23, and sporting some gray hairs… just like their
you for reading Rocky Mountain Rider every month! We appreciate your support and
