So, this post has a bit of a twist to it and has been created by ourselves and equestrian blogger Becky Oliver, from Becks back in the Saddle, for a collaboration post. A few weeks back Becky contacted me, asking if our Facebook group members, could be approached to gather their personal experiences of riding, during pregnancy and following childbirth and if we could create a joint post.
Becky got a good response to the post and has included these in her blog (link here), as she is currently writing about her own experiences of being pregnant, whilst riding. In my post, I will be including my personal experiences and tips for riding with children, as I have 3 children myself and I have never ridden whilst being pregnant.
This week, we have a guest post from equestrian blogger Daisy of How very Horsey, who shares her thoughts and tips on horses, pregnancy and riding after birth. Daisy comes from a long line of horsey family members and runs her own online rider confidence course offered to all levels of riders. Her group course runs over 8 weeks but you also have the option of doing one to one support, if you prefer.
Here I am going to share with you my ten favourite equestrian items. I have a real mixture of items, some are for riding and others those I just like when attending the yard.
No.1 – LeMieux saddle pad, I have numerous colours of these, my favourite is the close contact style as this sits nicely under the saddle. I also have a couple of dressage pads too. I love the vibrant colours of these pads and they wash up well too.
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!”
