Equestrian micro influencer - @samanthaosborneequestrian
In 2020, I began to develop a new Instagram page @samanthaosborneequestrian and with the support from Equestrian Sponsorship Hub, I am hoping to develop as an equestrian influencer. I am also training to join the British Showjumping world!
Samantha has her own website which can be found Here, where you can keep up to date with her lates blog entires and what she's been getting up to! Below is a sneak peak from May 2020...
It appears that I chose the right year to have a gap year with my horses! I have found the break from huge livery bills and running around like a headless chicken so beneficial! The boys love being turned away and wintered well.
I have been focusing on a range of other projects and have lots of exciting news to share with you!
Firstly, I have been doing some virtual showing. Blue started off with a win in the inhand show horse class when supporting Lindsey Hewitt and Sophie Clohesey's fundraising show for their yearling Malcolm's vet bill.
Bow also won the inhand M and M exc Welsh class. Blue went on to take supreme champion of the online show from over 600 entries and scooped a lot of prizes including £145 cash, £60 vouchers, overreach boots, headcollar and leadrope set, a digital print, a horse hair bracelet and a beautiful sash in memory of Sophie's mum!
I also entered Royal Windsor online and Blue finished 4th from over 100 entries! He was the highest British home produced horse and the only grey in the top 10. Finally, I entered an NHS fund raising show and Blue won his class, Bow finished 2nd and then Blue went on to be reserve champion of the inhand section as the highest placed plaited - winning yet another pompom sash! I can't wait to play dress up in his paddock with him!
As well as doing virtual competing, I have been developing my new Instagram page which now has almost 5000 followers (28th May). I am excited to product review and work as a brand ambassador for a number of companies. I was selected as a brand ambassador for Vivendi Apparell (please use my discount code SAMANTHA15 to get 15% discount off any clothing). I also won the Posh Muckerz Brand Ambassador Competition and am looking forward to working alongside them this year. The overalls will be so useful for my day to day routine - especially in winter!
