General guidelines: The Trail Rider welcomes your story and photography submissions. We especially look for well-written on-trail stories, on-trail photography, information that will help your fellow riders, short tips, news items, and new products. Article suggestions are also welcome. We reserve the right to edit for length, style, clarity, and accuracy. Submit timely material at least four months prior to issue date. Send manuscripts in Microsoft Word on a CD or DVD to the address, above. Include a hard copy.
Photography: We prefer high-resolution digital photography. Each photo must be 300dpi when sized at least 5-by-7 inches (at least 2,100 by 1,500 pixels). Generally, this is at least one megabyte (1,000 kilobytes). Submit photography on a CD or DVD, and include caption information. Original files only. If a photo was shot on film, send the original print or slide, rather than a scan. No Polaroid photos. Solicited film photography will be returned after use.
Around the Campfire: We welcome your let- ters and photos! E-mail us your comments, opinions, article suggestions, trail-riding experiences (briefly), tips, and photos. Typed or handwritten letters also welcome.
Your Trail Story: Report on your latest trail ride or other horse adventure. Tell us who you are, the name/breed/age/gender of the horse you rode, and who you rode with. Include specific location/s, trail/s ridden, elevation, difficulty rating (easy, moderate, difficult), best time of year for that location, and contact information for places mentioned. Follow guidelines above. Include photos with caption information. No payment will be made for these reports. For your submission to be considered, send in the release form below.
Where-to-Ride Guide: For a free listing as space permits, send us information on trail-riding destinations, overnight-stabling facilities, public lands, riding vacations (where a quality trail horse is supplied), and guest ranches.
Organized Trail Rides: For a free listing, send us your organization name (if applicable), the name of the ride, ride location, ride date, and ride contact information (telephone number, e-mail address, and website).
