Advertising in ITRA's Newsletter, Trail Mix

The Trail Mix newsletter is published bi-monthly in paper and electronic formats. It reports to our members on projects ITRA volunteers are working on, on upcoming ITRA events and related actvities, and general news regarding ITRA and equine affairs in Indiana. It is read by our members, all of whom receive an electronic copy via email. We also make the electronic form available to 3,500+ followers on Facebook. Requesting members also receive a print copy by mail. Because no additional costs are incurred for color in the electronic newsletter, we don't upcharge for color ads.

Advertising in the Trail Guide

ITRA publishes the Trail Guide, the most comprehensive resource on equine trails and campgrounds in Indiana. It is highly valued and heavily used by ITRA members who are planning riding-centered camping trips (which is most of them). It is published every three years as a soft cover book that is distributed for free to all ITRA members. Trail Guide also has a limited circulation outside of ITRA members. The Trail Guide has a shelf-life of about three years and is referred to many times by active riders, so ads in Trail Guide are likely to be seen multiple times. Trail Guide is on a three-year publication cycle; the latest edition appeared in 2022. Contact ITRA about the availability of ad space at intrailriders@gmail.com.
