WINNIPEG, March 27, 2014 /CNW/ - Minister of Canadian Heritage and

economy, and the cultural strength of our communities. Our funding will
help this magazine adapt to the dynamic online periodical market while
contributing to the diversity of Canadians' reading choices."

editorial content and distribution to include a much wider range of
horse enthusiasts, and this funding will assist us in achieving our
