What do horses and computers have in common? Many people would probably say "Not much!" But many people seem to be addicted to both. When I first learned about the Internet in 1988, way back when it was primarily used for email and file transfer between academic and research institutions, there were already thousands of horse lovers online, using the net to find and converse with others who shared their interests; and the Electronic Equestrian community has grown tremendously since then. This is a list of a few of my favorites of the many equestrian hangouts in the virtual world.
To subscribe: send an e-mail message to the server at firstname.lastname@example.org. The body of the message should contain a single line:
SUBSCRIBE EQUINE-L firstname lastname
(substitute your first name and last name in the message). The server will send you a confirmation message, to which you must respond to complete your subscription.
If that seems too complicated, try the new web interface. Fill in the blanks and click the buttons.
Equine-L is one of the first sources of equestrian info I found on the web umpteen years ago. It is a fairly high-volume mailing list, because it covers a wide range of equestrian topics and has over 1000 subscribers. Subscribers to this list can expect to receive up to 50 messages per day when people get really chatty. A digest subscription is available for those who would prefer to receive a few large messages instead of a lot of little ones.
For more information: check out the official list description in the LSoft Listserv directory, or the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions), compiled by Equine-l Listmom Tara Scholtz and hosted on the web by Graham Jenkins.
