Palpable enthusiasm.

Pioneering to build a site like this in Spanish.

“Silvia has come up with a very cool concept for an equestrian blog. I love the look and the feel of the entire website. The blog posts are relevant and entertaining for any equestrian, no matter where you live. I loved the list of the top horse movies. Surprisingly there were some I hadn’t seen on this list! The blog covers a lot of themes and subject matter, from personal horse stories to tip lists and equestrian lifestyle topics. I can see why it’s off to a very successful start.”
