Global Horse Rider
We are launching a new International Equestrian Club called Global Horse Rider which will initially comprise the following features:

1. A UK Horse Riding Directory.
2.A raft of about 10 Forums on all important Equestrian Topics such as Health, Training and Tack.
3.Free blog or personal journal.
4. Free online photo album.

In essence, you will be able to discuss just about any topic you like on the Forums, illustrate your comments with pictures, have a personal blog or mini website to which an easy-to-use online photo album will be attached for your photo collection. By flagging your interests or events in which you participate it will be easy for other like minded people to locate your blog and album. We shall list your blog in our Directory, but on condition you link back to Global Horse Rider.

We particularly want to reach out to organizers of events, horse trials, equestrian holidays, stables, polo teams and other groupings to introduce the concept of a group journal and album. If you have participated in an event it is rewarding to share your experiences with others by having a common blog. We shall be illustrating everything here in a few weeks, so please bookmark this page
