About Us

Horse Network is a digital publishing platform for horse people. Since launching in 2012 as the Horse Collaborative, we’ve quickly cultivated and connected a passionate international community of horse lovers, athletes, equine professionals, hobbyists, dreamers, and people who just think horses are cute.

This is the place to laugh, share stories, ideas, pictures and videos. This is the place to learn with the pros, get news, ask questions, and help make the horse world more connected and open.

Carley Sparks
Editor in Chief

Carley sees the world through horse-colored lenses. They’re like rose-colored lens, but with more show jumping. Carley’s mission is simple: to make show jumping more popular than hockey, football and ice cream. Combined. She’s been hooked on horses since her first terrifying gallop through the woods at Webb’s Holiday Acres Children’s Camp at age 8. Prior to joining Horse Network in 2014, Carley was a popular blogger. She’s also happy to celebrate the birthdays of her co-workers by writing loving, hilarious and maybe just a tad embarrassing articles about them. When she’s not making us laugh, Carley covers new developments in training and care, amazing moments in sport, inspiring equestrian athletes and horse people, and the ridiculous and nonsensical elements that inevitably accompany all of the above. Carley lives in Toronto with her partner, daughter and son. Not to be outdone by our own editor-in-chief, we’ve banded together to write Carley her very own BIRTHDAY STORY.

Kamille Barry
Director of Audience

Kamille oversees the execution of audience growth tactics—email acquisition, promotions, SEO, social media campaigns, paid advertising, etc. When not number crunching for Horse Network you’ll find her with her husband and two young boys in Alabama, doing yoga and/or trying to figure out how to sneak in a nap.

Aaron Nevins
Video Production
We have Ryan to thank for bringing Aaron to Horse Network. Aaron creates video, aiming to showcase the hilarity and prestige that is the horse world. Born and raised in rural Elk Grove, CA, Aaron is an artist at heart, a love that led him to study a wide variety of art, sculpture, literature and film.  Along the way, his high school buddy Ryan coerced him into working at a horse show. His co-workers at HC are happily rounding out his horse education. Aaron reports that he finds horses to be interesting and graceful creatures, but he prefers cats. Aaron is an avid gamer and also plays hockey.

Dia Jenks
Founder, Publisher

Dia is a Vermonter who grew up idolizing Denny Emerson. In her early years at Pony Club rallies, she was the one caught by the judges crossing the river barefoot with her Connemara and later found stuck in the hay net upside down. She LOVES her thoroughbred Mike and enjoys fox hunting (drag) with her husband, Story Jenks and sometimes their three sons join in as well. Read Carley’s Dia story.
