Welcome to the Equestrian Blog Hop!
What is an Equestrian Blog Hop?
The Equestrian Blog Hop is a linky list shared between a group of equestrian blogs worldwide. Readers “hop” from blog to blog through the post. I will host the hop once per month through the Equestrian Bloggers Facebook Group created by Sophie Tunnah of Team Tunnah Eventing. Each month will be a different theme relevant to equestrians around the world.
Meet Your Host
My name is Heather Wallace and I publish Bridle & Bone a blog about horses, dogs, and holistic wellness. My “day” job is providing equine and canine sports massage and aromatherapy. We work closely with several local veterinarians to improve fitness, reduce inflammation and soreness, and calm the mind.
One of my favorite things about blogging is the community of others that I have “met” and befriended through social media. The support network is absolutely amazing. To foster this and support each other’s blogs, I am hosting the Equestrian Blog Hop. You may follow me @bridleandbone on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram.
Please follow the rules below and contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
The theme for each month will be posted on a thread in the Equestrian Blogger Facebook Group, so make sure you are a member. The February theme is live now and submissions should be posted by February 26th.
Theme: 1st Monday of each month. Submission date will be announced when theme posts on the FB group thread.
Blog Hop: Posts must be published by the last Monday of each month and submitted to using the link below. You will have 3 days to join before the link closes.
- Submit 1 post per blog hop on the theme of the month. Any post not adhering to the theme will be removed by the host.
- Post must contain the blog hop graphic somewhere within the post. Download it here.
- Post must contain the linky html code or shortcode at the end of the post. This code allows readers to view all blogs in the hop.
- Visit and comment on as many blogs as you can before the next blog hop.
