Manchester Victoria Baths Zine Convention
The Victoria Baths is an incredible space now used as an Arts Centre. It was at one time a public swimming baths and the building is worth checking out on it's own. If you ever in Manchester go here!

Ein Ultra Pferd in Berlin!
We have been asked to participate in a zine exhibition for The WunderKabinet in Berlin this Summer! How very exciting! It is being hosted by Etsy Labs in Berlin, a bricks and motar shop and gallery for the international online handmade marketplace. It'll be called The Reading Raum, and it starts on 27th May and will run through the summer as an interactive, half-read-only archive and half gallery of current works for sale. We will be exhibiting our "Ultra Horse Fags" and there will be a limited edition of them on sale there too. So if you're in the neighbourhood...
Picture of the package the wonderful people in Berlin will be receiving from us.

Ultra Horse hits London zine Symposium 2011
Yes, I know I'm nearly a month late in putting this up, but hey, we're all friends here right?
So it was amazing. The standard of zines was out of this world, and the standard of cakes was average to good, but the best bit, as always was the people and other zinesters I met there.
To name a few, Peg Powler from Teeside, Zeene from Loughborough with their hilarious zines, Larry Jaffee with his Eastenders inspired Wolford Gazette, and soo many more. Everyone was great, I just wish I hadnt been so chained to my stall and could have spent hours perusing the stalls.
Next stop - Manchester! Bring it!

Cardiff Skateboard Club Zine rolls into town!!
I know one of the guys that wrote it (well two but, it was pretty dark) but if I hadn't, and I'd seen it somewhere, I would have got it anyway because, I don't know about you but, it's kind of refreshing to see a zine that's actually funny. There is some stuff about skateboarding in there too, one of these fine folks is the king of Crayon Skateboards, Dykey (nothing to do with being a lesbian at all) - based in Cardiff of course.
Are you some kind of joker?!
Than you should read this.
These guys are available for laughs and japes at... www.cardiffskateboardclub.com

Exploring the Great Southwest (choose your own adventure)
This is the latest zine to come through the doors at ultra horse HQ, one of my favourites so far.
I love everything about this zine. The cover is a cut out of a map of Las Vegas, (instant cool factor) and contains photos and drawings of these three girls' travels through the Southwest of America.
Every picture makes you want to get on a plane and hire a truck and just disappear into your own dusty, sweaty American road-trip.
It's not written like a normal travel journal, it's interactive in the way that it makes you choose your own adventure, giving you options at every turn, and a for each choice, you come to a photo of your chosen path - although there always seems to be a lame choice and a not so lame choice, the lame one resulting in going back and taking the not so lame one after-all.
I love the pictures, and the insights you get into the girls personalities, which you discover are the girls you wish you'd met in high school.
Never too late!
Read this IF:
a) You want to take a road trip round America but you don't know whether to take the road trip, or buy a Subaru 2.6l Turbo.
b) You have a brain.

I love fags as much as the next man, and what better way to celebrate this than with a pack of Ultra Horse endorsed pack of delicious fags? Coming soon to a zine symposium near you! What's that? Cant wait? Well pop along to the Ultra Horse Big Cartel Store and keep your eyes and lungs peeled for them. You won't regret it!
NB No actual fags are inside. Instead there's 3 mini zines on the subject of Kittens, France, and Animals of Farthing Wood all of extraordinary high quality.
