One aspect I’ve really enjoyed from the magazines moving online movement is the ability for magazine editors to really reach out and connect with their readers. The latest AnimalNetwork addition is the Horse Illustrated magazine staff’s blog “The Near Side – Dispatches from Horse Illustrated HQ.” They share adventures in their equestrian lives and fascinating horsey stuff they think you might enjoy between issues.

Check out “The Near Side” at HorseChannel.
