3 Tips to Create Your Own Brand Photos

Now here's a thing, you don't actually need to employ a photographer to help you with your own brand photos! I'm going to help you, for free (aren't I just a good egg!) with 3 simple tips to help you create your own library of photos to use on social media. These can be used with [...]

But my horse is a total fidget!

I’m frequently sent messages from potential clients that start with something like.. ”Oh but Billy is such a fidget. He’s awful at standing still, I’m really not sure he’ll cope with it all!!” (Obviously not all horses called Billy are in this situation 😉 ) So here’s my take on it all... ♥︎ ♘ ♥︎   [...]

Flat Lay Images for your Business

Flat lay images are a really simple and very versatile way to showcase products and services.   This style of photography is created by placing a number of items on a flat surface and shooting them from above.   Simple in definition and highly effective when done well. I've been using flat lay images in my [...]

Back in the Saddle – Full Steam Ahead?

At the end of my last instalment, summer was drawing to a close.  Dudley and & I had made great in-roads to a new partnership together.  We'd had a 3 months together, lots of time spent in flatwork and pole work lessons and we'd managed a show or 2 together and tackled jumping in a way [...]

How Batching your Image Content Saves You Time!

When I first got a feel for flat lay images and using them within my business I'd randomly grab stuff together to create an image.  Love the image, use the image and then the next day I'd probably do it all over again as I was enjoying the creative process and the nett result. Today, that [...]

Back in the Saddle… Adventures

When Tony and I decided that a round of proper show jumps was in order I don't really recall batting an eye-lid.  Putting my head to where I was just a couple of months previously and the idea of jumping then it's a huge change.  It's insane the change. It's not like I've swallowed a book [...]

Back in the Saddle… Wash & Show

It's been a little over a month since I last reported in and continued to bare my soul on my decision to return to riding last year!  Dudley's appearance in my life and how this big-little horse has transformed my outlook on riding has been nothing short of a flipping miracle. My outward appearance when Tiny [...]

Back in the Saddle… Flatwork isn’t a horror after all

'When you know, you know...' It's a simple statement that sort of makes no sense really and yet it has the heads of many nodding when they hear it.  It's certainly seems to be applicable as the relationship between myself and Dudley grows.   ♥︎ ♘ ♥︎ He's now been with me for 1 month and [...]

Back in the Saddle… Hello Mojo!

"You haven't lost your smile at all.  It's right under your nose, you just forgot it was there".  I have absolutely no idea where this quote comes from or who said it - so apologies to all concerned - but it's so flipping true.  In my last blog Goodbye Tiny, I had come to terms with the [...]

Spring Shoots to Savour

Spring has sprung and if your horse is anything like mine right now, the spring grass is giving them spooky feet and silly moments!  Nice, thanks guys! That aside it's a fabulous time of year for a Spring shoot. I'd venture to say it's my 2nd favourite season actually.  It's always a firm favourite for many when [...]

Hiho & Co “All You Can Be” Instameet

The huge success and enormous post event interest created from the Hiho Styles, Skills and Silver Instameet in 2019 meant that there was no way that event was ever going to be a one off. It was obvious that the equestrian and rural business world had clearly been lacking events of this nature.  Instameets are NOT new, but [...]

Choosing Prints over Digitals

We are fully immersed in the digital age and it's flipping brilliant isn't it!  Stuff, like photos, are at your fingertips 24/7 and we really don't have to think too much about where things are stored either.  The paperless office of the 1990's has taken over aspects of our personal life so that the savvy ones amongst [...]
