I established my blog in 2008. If you started reading it back then…well you’ve got some serious staying power my friend, and if you’ve just joined me…hello!

I’ve written for and featured in Horse & Hound, Your Horse Magazine, Horse Deals and Vogue Italia, yes Vogue darling! Modelled (I use the term very loosely!) for International equestrian brand Mountain Horse. I’ve interviewed Badminton winner Paul Tapner and been a guinea pig rider for magazine articles with Ruth Edge and William Fox-Pitt. I’ve also been part of a charity polo team (after 20 years away from the sport!) and tested my racing skills against professional jockeys.

A committed equestrian from birth, I’ve dabbled in a host of equine sports but my heart always lays with eventing. I don’t have much in the way of horse power, but what I do have I thoroughly enjoy because that’s what it’s all about. I’m very lucky despite my distinctly average results to have some super supportive sponsors and they make all the difference. As well as blogging about what I get up to I review products, create videos, memes, run giveaway competitions, interview interesting horsey folk, and write on a host of topics, the most notable post of which has been 15 Horsey Life Hacks which went viral, sending my traffic stats soaring, and continues to deliver!

Want to collaborate?

I’m always keen to hear from fellow riders, bloggers, brands, ambassadors and horsey folk about new developments in equestrianism. Got a crazy idea? I’m in! Contact me via social media or email gifthorseeventing@gmail.com
