Get Ready for Equestrian Blogtober!

Summer is over and it is my favorite time of year! October! My birthday month, yes but so much more. Warm apple cider, crispy mornings at the barn where fog overlays the fields. Trail rides and hiking amongst colorful foliage before retiring at home in front of a wood-burning fireplace. A perfect month.  My absurd summer schedule gives slight relief and more time for me to focus on The Timid Rider. As such, I’m attempting to join with my fellow equestrian bloggers to do Blogtober, suggested by Ruby Pepper Butchers of Equipepper! We all loved the idea and Charlotte Miller of The Forelock Journal put together this handy infographic to help us stay focused and give blog post ideas every day for the month.


Equestrian Blogtober


I’ll be honest- there is slim to no chance I will blog every day. I have too many work and family commitments to pull that off with the quality and thoughtfulness you deserve. Nor will the dog lovers who read this blog appreciate that much horse content. What I will do is pick several of the posts I think my readers will appreciate and do those!


I have never done a blog challenge before, so this will be fun. Make sure to follow along and see what all the equestrians are talking about this month. We all have different perspectives, writing styles, experience, and disciplines- but we are all united by our passion for horses. I hope you enjoy the Equestrian Blogtober and meet and follow some fun new, bloggers. Happy Fall!

  1. I’m so looking forward to seeing what you do Heather! And i’m Also super glad you gave me permission (by doing it yourself), not to do a post every day!

    1. Ha ha I’ve never been one to follow the rules 100%! But also, the topics need to be specific to my readers as well. Looking forward to catching up with everyone after a crazy few months.

  2. I’m not sure many of us are hardcore enough to publish good blog content every day! I’ve got a plan with 14 empty days on it!

    1. Isn’t that the trick? The reason I don’t necessarily want to post every day. I spend a lot of time on my content and each post. I wouldn’t want to feel like I wasn’t giving it my all. But I will definitely make sure to have Instagram and Facebook posts in the midst. Looking forward to the fun this month after a summer when my little blog was quiet.

      1. I agree! Quality over Quantity every time!

  3. LOVING this blog challenge. I don’t think I’ve given my blog so much attention on a daily basis!! Thoroughly enjoying it and read all of the other great contributors to the Blogtober concept!

    1. Agreed, it’s certainly a kick in the pants! I’ve only been posting weekly over the summer due to my schedule. So this is a great way to refocus!
