It’s Part 3 of the ‘Favourite Hack’s mini blog series, a series of quick fire questions posed at friends, clients, established or aspiring competitive riders relating to their favourite hack destinations. The series is being run in celebration of the campaign by the Brooke and their #MyHackathon campaign. If you aren’t aware of this fantastic fundraiser then head over to their site today to see how you can join in with their super simple scheme…
Today’s rider is Karen McConnell. Karen is a hugely busy lady! She runs a livery yard (oh and it’s stunning too) that boasts a great equine academy too. She was E-Dressage Equine Professional of the Year 2016. Karen become a Brand Ambassador for Hiho Silver in 2018 and has been a blogger for equine giants, Toggi for sometime. More recently, and very successfully, she has moved into lifestyle blogging too with her. Somehow manages to find time to be an incredibly dedicated wife and mum of 2 little ones! She’s flipping lovely too…
Hi, I’m Karen McConnell and I own and run a busy livery yard in Perthshire Scotland, called KA Equestrian. I have 5 horses of my own too.
Tell me a little about the horse/s in your life, what you do with them and if you have any specific aims (competitive or non-competitive) with them for 2018:
We’ve got 5 in total. 2 ex racehorses, a retired rescue horse and 2 kid’s ponies. I concentrate on dressage with my horses but include a lot of hacking in their routines.
Have a fabulous day!
