CIC3* Action from Burgham Horse Trials



This weekend was Burgham Horse Trials and due to when we are usually on holiday, I've never been to watch since it was given its FEI classes. We're very lucky to have classes up to 3* right on our doorstep.

So on Saturday, we head up to the event, nestled in a beautiful part of Northumberland approximately 10 miles north of Morpeth, to enjoy watching some of the world's top combinations being put through their paces in the showjumping and across the country.

Blogger's Corner: Grow Your Twitter Using Buffer



Drive even more traffic with Twitter by using a scheduling tool


A few months ago, I was introduced to a great little tools for Twitter - Buffer. Buffer is a fairly sophisticated tool, allowing for scheduling, reporting and managing your social media all from one place.

I've mainly used it for Twitter, and it has sped up so much of my workload for pushing out my own posts, as well as making sure I have a queue of content through retweets and quote retweets. I also only use the free version to the tool and found it meets all the needs I have.

Go to the Buffer site to sign up and get your account plugged in.

June Round Up

June was another busy month (I seem to now be saying this more & more!)



It kicked off in a pretty AMAZING way!! My sister, who has been on the transplant list for over a year, received a phone call at 5.20am Sunday 4th June to say that there was a kidney ready for her. I got several missed calls from her, my Mum & my Dad, and at 6.30am they finally managed to wake me up to tell me the great news... I immediately called my sister and as soon as she answered, I was a completely blubbering mess that couldn't even manage a 'Hello'...

An Olympic Q&A with Ludwig Svennerstal

Ludwig Svennerstal & Louie at Bramham CCI3* in 2017


A few years ago now, I watch a beautifully modest dressage test at Bramham Horse Trials. I didn't recognise the rider, nor the horse. It was a very harmonious test, showing a very real & working partnership. I thoroughly enjoyed the test & it has stuck in my mind ever since...

Glancing at my programme, I discovered it was a Swedish young rider, called Ludwig Svennerstal & a horse called King Bob. That was back in 2011...
