“Allison is the definition of a reliable freelancer. She produces well-written and interesting articles that require minimal editing, packaged with photos, which makes the editor's job much easier. She is on top of any issues that arise, communicating in plenty of time to pivot if needed. She also does her homework to make sure her writing style matches the publication. I feel confident recommending Allison as a freelancer to any equine publication, knowing she'll do a great job."
- Abigail Boatwright, writer, editor and photographer; co-founder of the Freelance Remuda
"Allison tackles each assignment with a fresh perspective and shows exceptional attention to detail. She shows a clear understanding of a topic in her writing, and works hard to make it easy for the reader to comprehend even the most complex concepts. Even when faced with difficult sources or challenging circumstances, Allison delivers quality work that makes my job as an editor easier.”
- Kelsey Pecsek Hruska, Editor, Quarter Horse News & The NRHA Reiner
"Allison takes time to familiarize herself with the magazine and style with which she is working for on each assignment. Where I often have to adjust a freelance writer’s work, she has already taken it into account. Event coverage or a personality piece, Allison’s effort to get to the heart of the story makes each assignment a worthwhile read. Plus, she turns in assignments on time—always a bonus for an editor!"
- Kate Bradley Byars, Communications Manager, National Reined Cow Horse Association
"What can I say about Allison? If the scale was ten stars, she would receive 20+. She is not only a creative, talented writer, but she is also easy to work with and a true picture of professionalism. She puts her whole heart into her projects and she has a way of writing that creates a beautiful photograph in the minds of the reader. Allison and I are both members of the American Horse Publications and she has won multiple awards, and I am happy to call her my friend too. She is always willing to help, share a kind word or give feedback on projects as needed. I have hired her to create blogs for my clients and she is on time always and communicates extremely well throughout the creative process. If you need a genius with a pen (and her camera too!), I highly recommend her!"
- Jamie Samples, Client, Marketing Consultant & Equine Business Coach
"Allison initially came our way with some innovative pitches, which we eagerly accepted. She met all assigned deadlines and word counts with clean copy that required minimal editing. Getting a package that includes both text and photos makes my life so much easier as an editor, so I have always appreciated getting packages from Allison. Her story for us on equine telemedicine turned out to be particularly timely just as Covid-19 was hitting and there was a lot of buzz about human telemedicine."- - Holly Caccamise, Editor, Horse Illustrated and Young Rider magazines
"Allison meets each writing assignment with complete professionalism. She’s always punctual, fulfills the scope of the writing assignment, and takes the initiative to go the extra mile by providing relevant perspectives that elevate the topics that she’s conveying to our readers. It’s certainly a pleasure working with Allison."
Jeff Cota, Lead Content Editor, American Farriers Journal
“Allison is a pleasure to work with—she’s professional, punctual, and has a talent for creating imagery and capturing emotion through her choice of words.”
- Coagi Long, President, Equine Affaire
"Allison Rehnborg is one of the most motivated freelancers I’ve had the opportunity to work with. She meets all deadlines given to her and she’s passionate about her subject matter and open to working on different assignments that involve a quick turnaround. She takes direction and feedback well and is always bringing new ideas to the table."
- Nichole Chirico, Managing Editor, Horse & Rider
"Allison came to me highly recommended and not only did she not disappoint, she exceeded expectations. Her passion for the subject matter, her precision and her ability to handle tall tasks in a timely fashion are only several reasons why she is a joy to work with. She is a consummate professional and I am thrilled, as well as extremely fortunate, to have her in my cadre of freelance writers. "
- Kimberly French, Editor, Hoof Beats
"In addition to bringing her own great pitches and stories to the table, Allison Rehnborg is one of my go-to freelancers for article ideas I love but, as a busy editor, cannot write myself. I can send her my thoughts on a unique topic, angle or story structure and trust that she’ll deliver above and beyond what I’m envisioning. For example, we worked with Allison to create a multi-part series on horse-care basics for beginner riders, with an emphasis on making the information easy to digest and fun for youth; the end result was a fun-filled 'Horsemastership' series that included bite-sized information, fun facts and mini-quizzes—everything we had hoped for and more. 
I appreciate Allison’s writing versatility. She consistently produces quality content that’s enjoyable for the reader, whether she’s writing about detailed health issues or beginner-friendly training tips. She communicates well with our editors throughout a project, and her reliability means we often trust her with projects requiring a quick turnaround."
- Rachel Florman, Associate Editor, American Paint Horse Association
"My first encounter with Allison was when she interviewed me for an article on tack room design.  I was impressed with her professionalism, her organization and thoughtful questions.  She was easy to talk to and we hit it off right away, sharing our passion for horses.  I then met her at my tack room project for her to photograph it for the article.  She showed up with professional photography equipment and she worked efficiently.  I also hired her to take some headshots for me in the space I designed.  I was thrilled with the way the photos turned out!  After reading the finished article, I knew right away that I needed to hire her to write the copy for my website.  I gave her the parameters and information about myself and my business, and waited to see what she would come back with.  I expected to have to do several rounds of revisions because writing the story of me and my business philosophies is a very personal thing.  She sent me the first draft a week earlier than expected, and much to my surprise, it was EXACTLY what I needed.  She nailed it on the first try and it sounded as if she had known me for years.  I was so excited to put that copy on my website and publish it.  Now my website perfectly explains to potential clients what it is that I do and what I’m passionate about. She is now my go-to writer!"
- Lindsay Hunter, Hunter Design

"Allison did our family photo shoot and I could not be more pleased with how the pictures turned out! We have a 6 month old baby and it takes a lot of skill and patience to get the right shot. I would highly recommend her as a photographer and a writer!"
- Anna Armstrong, photography client (fall 2019 & fall 2020)
