Getting to know #HorseHour's Founder, Amy Frost!

Over the last 12 months, I've enjoyed tuning into the many and varied podcasts created by #HorseHour. #HorseHour originally started on a Monday evening on Twitter between 8pm & 9pm every week. The hashtag (#HorseHour) provides a great base for equestrians worldwide to interact with one another, share their content & engage overall with like minded people in a dedicated time.

I recently reached out to founder of #HorseHour to find out about what is stands for and why Amy created. More interestingly, I was curious to understand the podcast's creation and the direction in which it was going.

Amy has very kindly agreed to guest blog on Team Tunnah Eventing to answer some of the questions that I had burning!!

One of My Most Proud Moments...

Today, I had one of my most proud moments with Louie.

We headed out showjumping to the fantastic Alnwick Ford Equestrian to jump around two of their unaffiliated classes. After a few busy weeks of dressage in August and at the start of September, I was pleased that we didn't need to be plaited nor be a contender for the 'Daz Doorstep Challenge'! However, I obviously couldn't go with a yellow tail and socks, so the day before I gave Louie a quick hose down after a long morning hack before popping him back in the field.

Back to showjumping...

September Round Up


The met office predicted an Indian summer in September... The month started off in a very different way, with temperatures falling, more rain & wind that we'd seen in the last few months, and of course, it is the first month of Autumn.

Following a dressage focused August, we kicked off September with a brilliant show jumping training session. The last time we had jumped in early July, it hadn't gone to plan, and I quickly found out that Louie's saddle was pinching. So, armed with a brand new saddle, we headed off excitedly for a jump training session with Philippa.

Blogger Review: Horse Addict

First up, what a great concept by Mathilde from Passion For Horse for all the members of the Equestrian Bloggers Facebook group to review a blog, and tell our audiences why we think they have such a great blog!! In short the concept puts all the blogs into the mix, and draw one for you to review, meaning that everyone is review and also gets the chance to make their own review of another too...


I was drawn to review Anne Leueen and her blog Horse Addict. This is a fairly new blogger for me to follow, and I discovered it when Anne post her introduction to the group on Facebook. Anne has something similar to me in that she gave up her love of riding when she went to university - fortunately for me, I managed to get back into it right afterwards, whereas Anne started back up at 50. Today, Anne enjoys dressage with her ginger Hanoverian gelding, Biasini!
