Meet Emma Sayer, my new brand ambassador!

 I'm delighted to announce I've just been selected as Steph Bloom Saddle Fitter's brand ambassador.I'm a full-time primary school teacher juggling three horses and Steph has been brilliant in helping me find and fit a selection of used saddles to my clan.I was lucky enough to spend a week with a saddle fitter when I was at school and have been fascinated by it ever since. Even when I was that young I could see how important a well-fitted saddle was to every horse, but especially youngsters, so I was really pleased to meet Steph, a specialist in fitting wider horses and natives. She's been able to advise me on purchasing the right used saddles so that I can keep up with their ever-changi...

How my new brand ambassador, Emma Sayer, found me

When Steph approached me to be a brand ambassador a while back I was over the moon, never did I think I would get an opportunity like this. We all like the idea of a bit of sponsorship but it's so hard to get it!I have known Steph for approaching two years and in this time she has been incredibly helpful and is out at my yard religiously every three months so we can keep a close eye on saddle fit. I first contacted Steph when I was finding it hard to find a saddle for my Welsh Section D two years ago. I met Steph at Equifest where she was single-handedly running her trade stand on behalf of AH Saddles. Here she ran me through how her saddles were designed and which would be most suited to my...

My brand ambassador Emma’s horsey history

I have been very lucky to have had horses in my life since day one. My grandparents owned a farmhouse with a few acres of land and for me, this is where it all started. Even when I was really young, after school and at the weekends I went to the yard to help Mum with her horses, although I was probably more of a hindrance than a help at that age! I would often jump on board Mum's horse if she went for a ride or the retired ponies would be tacked up to go for a short walk, however, we always used to fight for the favourite, Tarquin, who was a 14.2 palomino gelding and was an absolute saint! He was our favourite because we could walk along the track off the lead rein, however we never got far ...

My brand ambassador Emma Sayer and how she juggles work and horses

I hope you have enjoyed reading my posts and getting to know me and my horses. As Steph mentioned previously I have a full time job and a few horses so I thought I would let you know how I juggle my days to get the most out of my day and try to get everything done. Normally my day will start early during the winter months to go get the horses out into their paddocks and mucked out ready for bringing in later the same evening before heading home to get ready for work. I am incredibly lucky that I have a very supportive family and mum brings all that are at home in and sorted for the night. Occasionally I will make it back in time to help. In January I moved Marty to a local livery yard so aft...
