My Top 5 Apps for Anyone Who Loves the Outdoors

I'm sure I'm not alone in admitting that I rely on my phone (probably more than I should!) in everyday life, but especially when I'm outside and around the yard...

I've considered my top five apps that I probably use & think anyone who enjoys being outside could also install.

Not to JUMP onto the Valentine's theme...

...but I'm going to, just not in the normal way! I've never been one for romance of Valentine's Day anyway...

Just what is it that we all LOVE about horses?

Whatever it is...it seems to drive us all crazy, and once you've been hit by the horsey bug, it's a difficult one to let go of!

I've taken some time to think about just what it is that makes us devote so much dedication to them (& believe me, on a freezing cold, winter's night, it's not an easy ask!!)

Jobs to Keep You Busy in February

Well...the weather is pretty rubbish at the moment...winter is definitely making its statement & letting us know it is here!! Here's some top tips (jobs!) to help keep some motivation & be spring ready...

Clipping is done!

We don't clip all year round, but now January's out the way, we won't be needing our clippers again until the autumn. So get the blades sharpened - don't forget too that if they are due, send them away for a service.

There's nothing more frustrating than coming to ride in the autumn with a bit of a wooly horse, only to find that you didn't clean your clippers the last time you used them, they have blunt blades and are well over-due a service. Everyone finds the same and the same time of year, so it could be weeks before you see your clippers again!

Get them in now - then you'll be all set come September/October time!
