This week I am excited to share with you a post created by Tracey from the lovely Savvy’s Yard. Tracey is here to tell us about her own experiences of riding during pregnancy, along with sharing with us her new equine business and blog. Read one to find out more about Tracey her family and horses.
If anything is going tell you to stop riding while pregnant, falling off will do it!.
My name is Tracey and this is my story of running a new equine business, riding a horse and becoming a mother. Together with my husband Adam, we run our business Savvy’s Yard from our country cottage in Somerset, UK. Named after my horse Savvy, Savvy’s Yard is our online shop and social media blog. The tagline is “Inspired by horse and country living” which from our background of horses, farms, cottage renovation and living in the country it fits really well. Not only do we source our gorgeous collections we also make some of the items too. We are fortunate enough to have space at home, adjoining Savvy’s stable is our workshop where some of our items are made. The result is a fascinating collection of unique homeware and lifestyle accessories inspired by horse and country living.
Like me, you have probably seen lots of controversy over the whole ‘do we or don’t we ride’ during the current pandemic and a country in lockdown. I like many others have also had to consider this question in relation to the strain on the health service.
I can conclude though that yes I have continued to ride but should this had occurred a few years ago, then there’s no way I would have gotten on board my faithful steed. However, I can now confidently say that I do trust my horse! I understand that things can happen unexpectedly and horses can be unpredictable. Therefore, I have considered my actions and we have been sensible in our riding.
Welcome to our new monthly interviews, devoted to guest bloggers.
Each month we will be featuring an interview from a different guest blogger and getting to know more about them and their blogs. I am hoping this slot will allow readers to find a whole host of new and inspiring bloggers to follow.
First up is the lovely Vanessa Hill from Nutty nags. Vanessa is a retired lady who lives in the UK, she writes about all things equestrian, from tips to product reviews. Vanessa enjoys eventing as a more mature rider and proves she has what it takes to be a great equestrian.
