About HorseWyse

HorseWyse started in June 2001, and instantly became Australia's No. 1 magazine for young horse lovers. It is published four times a year, in Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. We try to fill up as much of the magazine as possible with great stories, educational articles, fun activities, reader stories and photos, competitions, stunning posters and much more! We encourage our readers to send in feedback, request horse related things that they would like us to research, to share their own stories and most importantly, to have fun!

About Us

I'm thrilled to introduce myself Renee Delicata as the new owner and editor of HorseWyse Magazine. Coming to you from the beautiful Central Coast of NSW, I am a proud parent of three wonderful children – two boys and a girl. Growing up, I fostered a deep affection for horses at a young age, school holidays were filled with anticipation as I eagerly visited the stables with my uncle to feed and watch him train his race horses. 

As i got older i would go riding with my best friend from school on the weekends out at her farm in Austral, where i then went on as an adult to purchase my own acerage and horses. Yet, it's my daughter Evie who now carries the torch for riding in our family. Her passion for horses has been undeniable since day one. We often enjoy rides together, whether it's exploring trails, joining friends for outings or weekends away at Showcations.

Our stable is home to two beautiful ponies: Poppy, a 9-year-old Welsh A, the dream pony and Bug, our lively 4-year-old Riding Pony x Welsh, whose charismatic personality keeps us endlessly entertained every day. Evie and I share a devotion to all things horses, having transitioned from the show world to exploring various disciplines such as Dressage, Showjumping, Eventing, Interschools, and Pony Club activities. We may even end up chasing some cows soon enough who knows.

We became the owners of HorseWyse in February 2024. After a lifetime spent with horses, a background working as in Graphic Design, Photography, Publishing & Marketing in the equestrian industry, and with Evie being a young competitive rider, we felt that we were in a perfect position to carry on the legacy of HorseWyse.

But it is not just our family who creates each issue of HorseWyse. We have an amazing group of contributors that create each issue of HorseWyse with us!

We can't do what we do without everyone that helps along the way, and we can't do it without help from our readers.
