Now Autumn is upon us, I enjoy nothing more than snuggling up with a good book. I am going to share with you my upcoming reading list which includes a mixture of horsey and parenting humour!
No.1 on my list is by Victoria Brant of the Wimpy Eventer. I finally completed the set by treating myself to the 3rd and final book when I purchased a signed copy at Burghley horse trials the other week.
This week we have a guest contributor post by Jenna Knudsen, creator & coach at The S.M.A.R.T. Equestrian . Jenna has designed a daily planner exclusively for equestrians and is here to tell us a little more about the planner and herself.
Can I please get three cheers for all of us Equestrian Moms! Seriously, a woot, woot is deserved and if no one has told you lately, let me say, “You are amazing!”
Yesterday I was surprised to have been tagged in a post informing me that we have been included in a post written by the lovely Sophie Tunnah from Team Tunnah Eventing. The post entitled 9 Equestrian Blogs of 2019 listed nine different equestrian bloggers with a little write up about each of them and what they are about.
I was thrilled to see that I had made it onto the list and there we were at Number 7. I had no idea this was being planned and it really made my day.
Please do take a look at Sophie’s blog and the other great blogs on the list and show your support for the equestrian blogger by following their blogs. I love to sit down and catch up with the ups and downs of fellow equestrians and following their progress!
Let me know in the comments of any more blogs I should know about!

The event is open from Wednesday to Sunday with plenty of shopping, young horse events and 3 days of 5-star eventing with dressage, cross country and show jumping having designated days. Saturday was cross-country day which is why we chose to attend on this day. This was my first time ever to Burghley, it was very busy and I observed a variety of people attending from young to old, some found a spot by the sidelines and spent the day enjoying the action from one particular place. Others like us moved around and walked the course, we tried to see at least one horse jump each of the 27 fences.
Before walking around the cross-country course we began the day by exploring the shopping village, which hosted a variety of equestrian and craft stalls, with some well-known brands such as Joules, Noble outfitters and Ariat, along with
As a huge Peaky Blinders fan myself I love this post, I love the increase in horses seen during the new series and watching Thomas Shelby ride his beautiful black horse. I am still a little behind though at present as watching with my husband who works shifts can be problematic, please no spoilers!
So Peaky Blinders series 5 is back. Hooray! I binge watched all of the other series on Netflix last year & am excited about it’s return. It’s a good show but I love it because there is a lot of horses in it and Cillian Murphy rides through the old fashioned streets of Birmingham on horseback. It’s pretty badass!
Here are 10 reasons that you really should check out Peaky Blinders if you love horses. Move over Poldark Thomas Shelby is back!
1. Tommy Shelby riding through the streets of Birmingham. Bareback! It’s just so cool!
2. Sam Neil’s Irish accent. Not horse related but worth a mention. “It’s none of your concern”. I said that a lot. My Irish friends loved me!
3. Thomas Shelby’s race horses. Tommy owning race horses sees the Shelby Family go to numerous race courses around Britain, including Epsom, Worcester & Kempton. So there…
