My name is Jessica, I am a writer and enthusiast of all things equine!
Once upon a time on a dark, damp, December's evening in 2013 I launched Gee Gee & Me, I was inspired to do so because prior to purchasing anything equestrian I have always carried out extensive research...Google-ing to the end of the earth and back! I figured there are others like me, and when every penny counts we want quality products that do the job as promised and last the test of time.
This is what Oscar and I do, trial and test. I continue to extensively research products before I buy as I don't have money to waste, therefore most of my reviews are glowing reports of my favourite tack room treasures...however there is the occasional fail that no doubt will make amusing reading!! I love to write and I am completely Oscar obsessed!"

Patricia Pitt, Haynet’s Equestrian Blogger of the Year 2014 from Staffordshire, U.K. is known as The Dressage Tipster. In her blog at www.likecrystal.com she regularly shares what she has learned from her research into why becoming truly skilled in the art of dressage is so elusive to so many riders.
With hints, tips and virtual coaching there’s plenty for Patricia’s considerable blog audience (7,000 subscribers) and facebook following (12,200) to support the road to riding success, along with product reviews and lots of goodies and giveaways.
The Crystal System blog was developed out of the frustration Patricia felt at her own lack of progress and soon became popular with grassroots riders who identified with her journey.
Author of “The Crystal System, Dressage Clear and Transparent, Like Crystal” a self-help system for aspiring dressage riders, the book walks the rider through a process of physical and mental self-assessment, asking them to think about their approach to training and what is wanted from it; giving the reader the confidence to select the very best from their own experiences. You will come to realize that your heroic efforts have been hindering you and that “simplicity is the key to brilliance”.
Feeling energized and focused, having clear training goals and feeling able to achieve them; this is what grassroots riding is all about, attainable by anyone with a desire to succeed. Patricia’s enthusiasm for the sport of dressage is infectious.

EQUESTRIAN BLOGGER OF THE YEAR 2016

I'm Sophie, and Team Tunnah Eventing is a story of the journey I have with my young horse Louie. My blog aims to bring competition reports, training updates, product reviews of everyday items that we think other equestrians will also find useful, as well as just everyday yard life!
I was inspired to launch my blog as a way to set goals, looks at our progress and drive motivation (especially in those cold winter months!). Team Tunnah takes visitors through all our highs and lows, and shows that hard work, even in the worst times, can get you through to the other side! I love all things equestrian as well as all things digital, so balancing my 9-5 Digital job with talking even more horse chat is an easy thing to enjoy creating. The blog presents varied content with an honest yet personable tone, hopefully bringing light-hearted humour for our audience to enjoy.
