Submission Guidelines

We are making changes to our newsletter! Coming in September is a whole new look and feel and we can’t wait to share it with you.

We welcome writing and photo submissions from freelance writers, photographers, and artists using the freelance submission guidelines below.

MLAHA serves the Arabian horse community of the Mother Lode region of Northern California and we welcome owners of all breeds. Our updated magazine format supports members and our horse community with informative and useful information. While we do focus on Arabians, much of the information we provide is valuable for all breeds.
