HRTV, The Network for Horse Sports, reached a notable milestone recently with the activation of its 200,000th Facebook "Like" in October.
HRTV's Facebook page originally reached the 100,000 benchmark in March 2013, and rapidly doubled that number in the past eight months.
As one of the largest Facebook fan bases in the "horse sports" world, HRTV serves the news and social networking needs of all horse lovers, ranging from people interested in horse racing to Western horse fans and English riding enthusiasts. HRTV's continuous daily updates reflect the most up-to-date programming on HRTV, as well as the growing number of live streaming coverage of important equestrian events via www.HRTV.com.
"The rapid growth to more than 200,000 Facebook fans over an eight month period reflects an evolving interest in all horse sports, both in the U.S. and in other countries," said Dotty Ewing for HRTV. "We also see that our fans' passion results in an expanded reach for HRTV's contributions and communications."
