    Mel Gauld was the brain child behind the WHA’s creation & growth into the publication it has become today. Creating her first Western Horse Annual at the tender age of 23, Mel has strived to produce an annual that fills the advertising and marketing gaps in the Western horse scene. Incorporating ideas sourced from the leading magazines in the USA and her own ideas from feedback and experience has resulted in the magazine you read today. An accomplished equine photographer and graphic artist, Mel puts her skills to good use in the WHA, and has been an active competitor in the Western horse show scene since the early 90’s. She has multiple national, state and NPHA champion titles with horses she has owned and bred in halter, western pleasure and hunter under saddle events.
    With the help of friends in the industry sourcing advertising and assisting with material each year, Mel strives to create an interesting and diverse range of subjects to publish in each years edition.
