Analyse this – the importance of analysis of your riding

What is this life so full of care, we have no time to stop and analyse things. Well, I am not very good at just staring or at least, if I look like I am just staring I am probably thinking. Overthinking can be a bad thing, but analysing is so important and something that some people just don’t do enough. I have just started competing again. It is very early stages but it going […]

A bad workman always blames his tools

Any regular readers will know I love a quote. I love it when you come across a quote for exactly what you are trying to say in such a perfect little bite sized snippet. Well, today the quote that feels right is “A bad workman always blames his tools.” Yesterday was a good day in terms of moving forward on my path to confidence.

Do you ever have those moments where you realise you are truly happy? Not because anything major has happened; actually not because of anything in particular at all. You just find yourself smiling.

Winner, Winner, Chicken dinner

I knew eating chicken for supper the night the Equine Blog Awards were announced was a good decision! I think I am still in a state of shock from seeing the tweet which said “Rising Star 2017 is How Very Horsey”. It genuinely means so much to me. I don’t have as big a following as some of the other finalists but so many people voted and cheered me on, it was really special. Plus […]

Why did you start blogging? September Equestrian Blog Hop

I was excited to hear of a new venture called Equestrian Blog Hop. An idea that bloggers unite to write about a particular topic each month so readers can “hop” around and read different blogs talking on the same topic. I am always interested to join forces as a writer and am also excited to explore the other blogs too and hopefully adventure into some topics I may not have written about! Topic one for […]
