In July I had the opportunity to interview Isabelle Bright (aka The Modern Equestrian) for Equine Journal and Intrepid International about being an equestrian influencer! Check out our interview here.
Busy week this week, but I did have a blog published over on Equine Journal! I interviewed Chrissa F Hoffmann for the blog series, From Pasture to Performance, in collaboration with Intrepid International. Chrissa gave her top tip for training the Grand Prix Dressage Horse, which I really love! You can check out the blog interview here.
Just dropping by to share that I have a new publication out this week! Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been writing a monthly blog for Equine Journal called, From Pasture to Performance. This series is sponsored by Maxtra, a new series of saddle pads produced by Intreprid International. Each month, I’ve had the opportunity to interview cool equestrian professionals and ask them about their best training tips.
I think I’m going to post more check-ins of how my writing is going, maybe quarterly to start since I’m a little scared that if I commit to monthly I won’t have much to report. In between working on whatever book project I have going and writing for Isle of Books, I also usually have a couple publications a month on other sites. My freelance articles often seem like feast or famine…either I’m doing just a couple or I’m doing so many I’m genuinely concerned I won’t make my deadlines.
Personal life wise, I’ve had a really busy fall and I don’t expect it to let up until Halloween…meaning that progress on my book has been glacially slow. So slow that I’m a little embarrassed to admit how little I got done during the month of September. Things were going better earlier in the summer until my confidence got a little rattled and the recovery from that has been slow going. Not having time to write consistently isn’t helping much in that department.
On a more positive note, I did get quite a few other things published! Looking at this list makes me feel a little less terrible about how my book progress is going…
I also attended a one day writing conference in May and applied for a scholarship for another writing conference happening at the end of January/beginning of February…fingers crossed that I get it!
