HAPPY NEW YEAR - blogging and vlogging in 2015.

HAPPY NEW YEAR everybody.  I really hope you all had a great holiday season and managed to spend time doing the things you love.  For me that was spending time with family, but also with the horses. 

I have been blogging and vlogging for 3 months now, if you haven't seen my vlog channel on You Tube then check it out Horse Life and Love. It took me quite a while to pluck up the courage as I had been thinking about it for nearly 3 years and had always wanted to share my passion for everything equine.  I have been lucky enough to have my own pony and then horse to ride for quite a few years and have also looked after them every day for most of this time.   I want to share product and book reviews, events I go to and what I get up to with my horses on a daily basis, basically everything that is horsey in my life!

I also wanted part of it to be about sharing knowledge, so I have been doing a weekly blog and occasional vlogs about basic horse and pony care.  I chose my subjects for this based around the British Horse Society (BHS) Stage 1 exams because I think that they are a great way to learn and demonstrate your knowledge.  I have a few more topics to go and then am planning on progressing to Stage 2 level knowledge before moving on to Stage 3 and perhaps 4.  I have my Stage 3 BHS exams in both riding and horse care but realise that you can never stop learning and horses never stop teaching us!

So as it is a NEW YEAR I thought it was a good time to have a review of last year and write down some aims for this.
