Now, let's see. 

Twitter equine accounts. Check! Pinterest equine accounts. Check!

So, now it's the turn of Facebook! Here's some cool, equine Facebook pages to follow. Of course, you may already be following these pages and that's cool. However, you're more than welcome to suggest good equine pages that you follow (or even your own) that I can add to the list ;)

Keep Dartmoor Hill Ponies off the Menu - British people do not eat horses (as a rule.) Yes, there are a those few that do, but, to be honest, it hasn't taken hold. I would hope that it would stay that way. We Brits do not eat our pets, period and there would be just as much disgust and revulsion if cats and dogs were to suddenly turn up on the menu. So, I support this page all the way and any other like it.

Equine Awareness Therapy - This page is all about promoting your horse's welfare and health. So, important for a happy horse.

Haynet Blog - Haynet was the first equine network and social community I joined a few years back. I haven't left it though I did have a break from the internet. It's a great community which promotes and supports equestrians all over the world.

Horse Trust - Of the many horse charities that work to improve the life of horses over the UK. It also takes in abused and neglected equines to give them a second chance in life.
The Confident Rider - This is one page I love simply because I need the help it gives. After an absence of 25 years, I've lost my confidence in riding and handling horses. I couldn't do without it.

How to Market Your Horse Business - If you have a blog, you have a 'business' even if you're just posting for yourself or family. Unless you are an equine influencer like Horse and Hound, you'll need additional help with marketing yourself. You can find tips and advice here.

Horse and Rider Books - Plenty of equine reading featured here as well as other interesting information. Basically, if you're looking for new books to read, here's a good starting point.

Horse Talk - This page is extremely popular; it's membership count is huge! I hope that my own page can achieve this total before I die :) Talk about everything equine to your heart's desire.

Horses 4 Homes - Find your next horse listed on this page. There's plenty of equines needing a good and stable home for the rest of their lives. 'Horses4Homes is committed to helping the equine community to re-home horses more responsibly and by doing so reduce the number of horses in need of rescuing each year. '

The British Horse Society - The biggest equestrian charity in the UK and no doubt in the world, too. Its examinations are recognised as the qualifications to achieve to further your equine career and personal knowledge.

I have a weird (or wired?) sense of humour and cartoons have never been my go to humour medium. But, even I found these funny, perhaps because I've experienced some of them myself.

If you're thinking that there should be unlimited cartoons posted here, you'd be right. If you count the links I've given at the bottom, you may find that the final total adds up to loads more. It's a dirty blogging trick to use really!

Carry a search on Pinterest for Horse people and it will come up with thousands of choices. I can't even imagine how many horse boards that will equal to!

What you will find here are 10 Pinterest Horse People accounts to follow that are informative, different, inspiring, funny and generally interesting. They encompass almost every aspect of horses that you can think of.

I've picked these particular people because they have boards that are away from the popular and well-known choices such as Horse magazines.

Okay, so there might be one in there but no more than that :) I also haven't chosen equestrians that have a lot of followers. See if there are any listed here that pique your interest:

  1. The Sale Horse - Find your next champion here.
  2. Horse Chats - Features boards such as Equestrian Goals and Horse Chats.
  3. Horse Breed Index - Curious about the individual breeds of horses? Find them all here.
  4. Bits and Bridles - Horse tack and horse sports.
  5. Show Stable Artisans - Horse jewellery.
  6. Cam of the Horses - Bareback riding and racehorses.
  7. Equimed - Horse Health Matters (I've just realised what they did there with their slogan.)
  8. Equine Rescue Network - Before and after photographs & Horses saved.
  9. Horse Grooming Solutions - Make life easier on yourself.
  10. Horse & Rider Magazine - There's the one horse magazine!
  11. Horse Network - Equestrian lifestyle & Equestrian Quizzes. 
  12. Horse Nation - Equestrian hotties! 
  13. Horse Toys Superstore - Model horses and more!

Of course you don't have to follow all boards on all the equestrians accounts. Just follow whatever strikes your fancy :)

And Don't forget me! Tina Collins - Equi-learning, Great Art and Animals in War.

I'm sure that there are plenty more tweets about the history of horses on Twitter but these are some of the most recent. There is one tweet from @NataschaKRoss, that I had to put in :).

Right at the bottom you will find the twitter account of Equine History.
