For this post we've gone Twittery! While there are many big names from the horse world out there on Twitter, we wanted to feature accounts that are less well-known but still offering great content. So here are our top tips for Twitter accounts that will brighten up your life and enhance the horseyness of your Twitter feed.*
Call us biased - Daisy is one of Bespoke Bandages' supported riders after all - but we think Daisy's twitter account delivers a great mix of product recommendations, motivational quotes and first hand training trials and triumphs from this up-and-coming professional dressage rider. Daisy has ridden for the GB Junior Dressage Squad, works for International Grand Prix Rider Nicola Buchanan and yet is just like the rest of us horse-mad people - check out her 18th birthday cake! Follow Daisy @DJDressage
The star attraction (in his mind at least!) of our 2014 Triple the Warmth partner SPEAR, Pumpkin the pony now has his own Twitter account! Pumpkin shares insights from his day to day life, as well as many VERY cute photos. By following Pumpkin you can also find out about the work of SPEAR, who specialise in the care of equines and other large animals. Follow Pumpkin @pumpkinofspear
Dan Greenwood is an international dressage rider, competing for Great Britain. He also trains up to Grand Prix level and is an accredited trainer for the British Young Riders Squad. So not much going on then! On Twitter Dan shares his training and competition experiences, as well as details of forthcoming training sessions. Follow Dan @DGDressage
Before following, be warned: your Twitter feed will be overrun by donkey love and adorable images of donkeys when you follow The Donkey Sanctuary's twitter account! The charity's mission is to 'transform the quality of life for donkeys, mules and people worldwide through greater understanding, collaboration and support, and by promoting lasting, mutually life-enhancing relationships'. The Donkey Sanctuary tweets prolifically and is supportive of its local communities as well as other charities. Guaranteed to raise a smile! Follow The Donkey Sanctuary @DonkeySanctuary
