Saw your tweet...🙋🏻🙋🏻🙋🏻🙋🏻I'm the one asking all the questions lol!! 😂 didn't want to seem like some crazy stalker! 😝Allison
Not at all! 😂
When you first started blogging how did you get people to read/follow it? Any tips for an aspiring blogger?
I just shared my posts on my social media outlets. I started my blog mostly for my family and it developed from there, so I didn't do much to generate a following. Also, having follow buttons on your site are the easiest way for readers to get notified about your posts. Blog hops are great way to get your name out there in the blogging community as well as commenting on other blogs.
How do you edit your Instagram pictures they are 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
I use Afterlight! And mostly just turn the shadows up or use the Russ filter. ☺️
How does one go about getting a job like yours? You're so lucky to have a job working at a horse magazine. That's like my dream job! Also feel better!!! 😄
Creative a portfolio! I didn't go to school or study anything related to working at a magazine, but basically created my own portfolio with my blog. And thank you! 💕
Do you think you will ever make a YouTube channel?
I've thought about it but I'm not sure I'd have the time or creativity to do it 🙈
Dumb question but when clipping horses why do people leave a V at the top of the tail? Love you and Ax!!! 😁
I do! Always.
I was looking through your blog & first I just have to say I'm such a fan!! Also how the heck did you get Ax to have such a beautiful frame? It's so nice & upright & he has such an arched neck with still having a flat face & doesn't get behind the vertical. I need your secrets!! 😂😄
Thank you! 💕☺️
I don't have any secrets 🙈 But my biggest advice is leg, leg, and more leg. Ax naturally carries his neck up because he is built more upright than a typical hunter, so that definitely helps. If I'm being entirely honest, he gets behind the vertical more than you think—it is our biggest struggle. His mouth and face are very sensitive so it's all a matter of using enough leg to push him forward into your hands and holding your hands steady so he can hold the contact, any movements and he will slide behind the vertical and out of contact.🐴
Have you ever felt discrimination/hate for being a fuller figured rider? You're eq and horse are #goals! ❤️
Aw thank you! ☺️ I have been lucky and haven't had any issues being a "fuller figured" rider, though I don't consider myself that. Being this "full" is also relatively new to me, so I've had less time for others to give me problems, if that makes sense.
Which brand of breeches do you like the most?
Tailoreds, hands down.
What kind of saddle did you get?
It is an Amerigo.
So a picture with words was a must. 😔
Not at all. It that was the case then that would have been a rule.
Please tell me you didn't just pick the people with the heartfelt stories & long paragraphs because I could have done that if it's what it takes
All of the entries were read and I selected the ones that looked as though effort was put into them. Winning a contest isn't easy, I want the winner to have really tried. Heartfelt doesn't have anything to do with it.
Are you announcing tonight:) SO excited & nervous!
It might be tonight. I'm at home enjoying my family for the weekend so it may not be until Monday. 😁
If you announce the top 10 that'd be great! We would really like to know if we have a chance of winning:)
I'll announce the top ten on my blog and will post it to Twitter before announcing the winner sometime this week.
Will you be announcing it on your twitter? :)
Yes! The winner will be announced on Twitter and on the original blog post.
What two animals should breed and make a new animal?
A horse and a buffalo. Oh wait, I already have one. ☺️
Do u still write for legal ew
Legal Eq? Yup! I just took a little sabbatical for a few months because I've been pretty busy.
Are there any brands or companies that you boycott? Why do you refuse to do business with them?
None that I "boycott" but I do have a few that I am not a fan of their products. I like to stay open to new things to try.
What do you think about @legaleq
I think she is amazing. I love her blog and how passionate she is about her horses, her writing, and her opinions/beliefs.
What brand is your saddle? Do you like it?
It's nothing fancy. It's actually a super old Dover Circuit that sat in someone's garage for ten years or something like that. It's not my favorite, but it fits my horse better than my old one and it is functional until I can afford something nicer. I like that it is the old version, not one of the newer ones because the new makes are not as nice of a quality.
say, for doing a review, getting a free product? interacting with brands? :)
The majority of my reviews are done on products I purchased myself. When I have received a free product it was because I had reached out to the company or business myself though that does not affect how I review the product. I keep my reviews honest. The most opportunities I have gotten is interacting with different companies or brands and getting my name out there.
have you gotten any opportunities through your blog?
Opportunities such as what? I'm not sure what you're asking.
I am thinking of making a blog...i absolutely love reading yours!! but I don't know exactly what I would write about! any tips or ideas? thank you!! :)
Aww thank you! I started mine by just writing about my horse and my riding and then slowly branched out to other things. Product reviews and lifestyle posts are pretty popular but it all depends on what you want to write about. Most importantly, just be yourself and write what makes you happy, not just what you think others are going to like.
