Let me introduce our guest blogger this month Emily Gaily who has written about Sponsorship which is a subject close to our hearts. We get a lot of enquiries ourselves so thought we would share with you if this is something that you are considering. . .
Hi, I am Emily, a photographer under the guise of EquusPhoto. Photographing everything from dogs to horses to working with businesses for commercial photography. I absolutely love meeting new people and horses, and finding out all about their lives! I combine my business with my riding my Dressage horse so love to think about each side of the sponsorship debate. Equestrian sport is expensive, it just is, no matter what way you do it, so it's not surprising that more and more riders, both amateur and professional, are looking for sponsorship. Here are some tips, as well as Do's and Dont's.Read More
Hi everyone, we are back from our holidays, sleeves rolled up and ready to dive in to 2019! I know I know you have all been hard at it for 2 weeks now!
Even though being abroad is beautiful and the people so nice (not to mention the food and cocktails) it's great to get back into the office, it's never normally this tidy but amazing how organised you get when you are going away! Funny that! Pens are in the holder, papers filed neatly! The mindset is also settled and makes it easier to clear the decks and be more steamlined about the direction to be steered into the New year.
There's nothing like a break to get me revved up and I'm so excited about 2019 and what it might bring! The new planning diary is filling up and I'm sure you guys are starting to think about the forthcoming season. In fact I know you are as I've seen many of you schooling up new/young horses in their winter woollies while I've whacked up the heating to tropical in the office and marvelling at the fact I used to work outside. Brr! I take my hat off to you!
I also know because normally this time of year the orders start piling in for new stuff as you have been going through your tack rooms and replacing or buying new for new horses.
This year we continue our ongoing relationship with the lovely Jayne Ross and her hardworking team, and our sponsored dressage rider Isobel Berrington who is working her way up the ranks with hard work and dedication.
Our tack lockers continue to go out far and wide, and we are planning to extend our bridlework ranges which takes a surprising amount of work to get them just right. Don't forget our Jayne Ross sizing is completely unique so if you have a show hack, cob riding horse or hunter of any size they will fit! All it generally takes is a change of cheekpiece if not, they are honestly that well thought out and made. We are introducing a new 'comfort' headpiece which we have been asked for and that is in production as we speak.
We don't like you to have to faff about with different size of cob full and xf to get the right size, it's all done for you! If you need to talk sizing through please don't hesitate to call Sara on 01252 651488, or if she is out fitting or rummaging about in the warehouse her mobile number is 07973 368090.
Right Im sure you want to get back to work (or not) but I just wanted to say it's good to be back and we look forward to speaking with you and helping you turn your horses out to perfection in the coming year. Good luck with horses new and old and we love getting photos of them so let's see what you've got.
Andrew, Sara, Amy, Lindy the number cruncher, Natalie (her outdoors) and all the ginger office Vizslas.
