My name is Sharon Howe and I am horse mad.

I am a big dressage enthusiast and if, like me, you enjoy finding like-minded people to follow on social media, I publish a weekly interview with some of the top dressage riders and trainers, along with many up-and-coming young riders from all over the world. In these interviews, I feature these very talented people and highlight their popular equestrian instagram accounts where you can discover more about them and get some useful hints and tips on all aspects of owning, riding, competing and caring for horses.

You will find these under the “chatting with” blog category at the top of each page.

Keep an eye on regular features which I share whenever I spot a new or interesting horsey product or service

I am the owner of Mulberry Tree at Home .  A business which specialises in making unique country and equestrian furniture and home accessories and as such I get to attend events and meets lots of lovely and interesting people so I will keep you updated with how that is going from time to time.

Oh yes, I have two dogs Mabel and Poppy and a very cheeky pony called Riley who you will meet often as we begin our equestrian journey together. Despite my love of horses, I am a nervous rider following a bad experience some years ago, so I will chart our riding progress here. We hope eventually to compete in dressage events however there is a long way to go as he is quite a character. I hope you enjoy reading about the Life of Riley as much as I enjoy writing about his adventures each week. Sharon x
