"WikiHorseWorld.com is a very sophisticated full featured equine website and Hillorie's background and experience in both technology marketing and equestrianism make her the perfect choice to become our new Senior Vice President of Marketing," said Don C. Balton, President and CEO of Dream World Technology Inc., the company which owns WikiHorseWorld. Mr. Balton explained that WikiHorseWorld's unique mixture of high end horse related products and services has made their search for a qualified marketing executive somewhat challenging. "We expect that Hillorie's unique combination of high tech marketing experience along with proven horsemanship abilities and her unbridled passion for horses will be a tremendous asset for WikiHorseWorld as we expand our reach to horse lovers and equine enthusiasts around the world," added Mr. Balton.

Mrs. Bachmann-Vidal explained that these two equine websites complement one another because SportHorseFinder.com exclusively targets sport horses such as Endurance, Eventing, Dressage, Show Jumping, and Flat Track horses whereas WikiHorseWorld.com encompasses all types of horses, all horse disciplines, and a much broader range of horse related products, services, and issues.
