Back in the Saddle… Part 10

By |2019-02-17T19:39:58+00:00February 17th, 2019|Categories: Life Rambles|Tags: , , |

It's been quite a while since I blogged specifically about my return to riding and the journey with Tiny, my ex-racehorse.  Not through a lack of desire really, but more from the fact that not an awful lot has really happened since I last updated you all in the middle of January.  To be honest much [...]

Hiho & Co “All You Can Be” Instameet

By |2019-02-15T12:43:17+00:00February 15th, 2019|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , , , , , |

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 [...]

How Batching your Image Content Saves You Time!

By |2019-02-07T11:15:04+00:00February 5th, 2019|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , |

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 – How Times Change Pt 1

The last horse I had at home with me before Tiny appeared in my life this past autumn, was in October 2006.  Whilst I've owned horses since 2006, they've mostly been youngstock who were kept away from me on the stud where they were bred.  They were never any closer than an hour from where I lived and [...]

Letting your memories surround you…

By |2019-01-15T10:28:20+00:00January 15th, 2019|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , |

OK, so 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 over taken aspects of our personal life so that the savvy [...]

Back in the Saddle… Part 9

By |2019-01-15T10:19:13+00:00January 14th, 2019|Categories: Life Rambles|Tags: , , , |

It's been nearly a month since you had my rambling words drop into your sight and there's a good reason really for that.  Not an awful lot has changed since the last blog when my little ex racehorse, Tiny, had the mother of all hematomas and that had that stopped play for us both. Well, I lie, [...]

Business coach, social media guru and all round nice person Rhea Freeman from Rhea Freeman PR invited me recently to join her in a blog, 5 Things I'm Proud Of (#5thingsimproudof), I jumped at it. Although I don't do a huge amount of blogging but because the theme seemed so positive, with a simple structure and at [...]

Back in the Saddle… Part 8 Patience

By |2018-12-18T06:08:35+00:00December 18th, 2018|Categories: Life Rambles|Tags: , , |

When you are desperate for some consistency in your mental approach to something, being delayed from even being able to try can be really difficult to deal with.  Patience is required.  Particularly when horses are involved.  So is the ability to put those issues to one side and just carry on with 'normal' stuff is what's [...]

Back in the Saddle… Part 7 Forwards & Backwards

By |2018-12-06T14:52:50+00:00December 4th, 2018|Categories: Life Rambles|Tags: , , |

All has been going well with Tiny and I at home.  He's not put a foot wrong and we are slowly building our relationship together both on the ground and in the saddle.  However things in my head have been somewhat unhelpful lately and despite my strong desire to be much further forward with my return [...]
