Equestrian Blogger Talent Recognised In Awards

The annual Equestrian Blogger Of The Year Awards returns with even more exciting talent representing equestrian blogging at it’s most brilliant.

Now in its seventh year,  the Equestrian Blogger Of The Year was created and is powered by Blogger Portal Haynet and sponsored by Equestrian PR & Social Media Marketing Agency, MirrorMePR.

Searching through hundreds of blogs including many submitted by equestrian bloggers themselves, the judges, Sam Hobden, Founder of Haynet and Ashley Rossiter, MD of MirrorMePR have spent months reading and analysing blog content and discussing entries, as Sam Hobden explains:

“Both Ashley & I were looking for blogs which had a very distinct personality and tone of voice. We were looking for well-written and presented blogs with good visual representation. We wanted to feel connected with the author and immerse ourselves in their stories. We were looking for blogs where we felt compelled to read more and enjoyed the overall experience, from the initial click right through to then reading the content. ”

This year the finalists are very diverse as Ashley explains:

“We were overwhelmed by the sheer amount of talent out there, and Sam & I spent many hours deliberating over which ones to put forward into the final as there are so many brilliant blogs. It was a tough decision to choose from so many, but we feel our finalists represent a broad spectrum of equestrian blogging: From everyday riders sharing their equestrian stories, through to equestrian style and even equestrian travel.”

Here are the twelve equestrian bloggers that have made the 2018 finals:

Fifty per cent of the voting is made by the public which is taken into account when judging the winner of the Equestrian Blogger of the Year Award 2018. To vote for your favourite, then click here.
