Everything Else Everything else

HiHo Silver Competition/Giveaway… What are YOU most looking forward to this Event Season?!

Screen shot 2015-01-17 at 10.30.12We have an exciting giveaway to celebrate the approaching Event Season, a beautiful pair of HiHo Silver horseshoe earrings, hopefully guaranteed to bring the winner lots of luck this year!

The HiHo range really does have something for everyone. I always make a beeline for their stand at every Badminton and Burghley, and have never yet failed to find something lovely for myself and for whoever has gone with me. I’ve worn one of their silver bangles 24/7 for a year and a half and it still looks as good as new (so, it’s totally durable and horse-proof!)

They have an extensive range, from the delicately beautiful Alex Monroe designs, to the leather bracelets for men and women, with or without charms, and everything in between. There’s a huge choice, and some items can be made totally bespoke, for instance their Pearl and Snaffle bracelet could be made in a rider’s xc colours. The attention to detail is meticulous: their horseshoe charm was modelled on a real shoe from an event horse, and it shows.

About the author



  • I am most looking forward to getting my young filly up and running and aiming her at a baby event in late September.

  • I am most looking forward to the feeling you get after galloping over the finish line after going cross country…in the daylight (which is a novelty at the moment in the winter!)

  • I am most looking forward to taking out my new baby horse and seeing how he develops during 2015 as I know every achievement will make all these dark nights so worth it.

  • I am most looking forward to seeing the cream of British Bred eventers rise to the top in 2015 and fly the flag for British Breeding

  • Im most looking forward to getting my big lad out again after needing a radical hoof trim which set us back a season, now after a year off from jumping, we’re off the ground again and looking forward to getting out to out first event at the start of the season

  • I’m most looking forward to getting to an event this year, though still not actually planning for this.
    Last year was planned to within an inch of it’s life and of course the boy did what horses do best and didn’t play ball. Am hoping with not planning yet he can’t start planning his next ‘holiday’

  • I’m looking forward to just getting to our first event, as that will mark my 6year old and I giving BE a go together. I’ve done it before, she’s done it before, but I’m hoping that together we will be a winning combo 🙂 Before then I just need to master getting on her (!), her focusing enough in the arena for me to actually school her, and hacking out without her thinking the world may end. Simples!

  • I am most looking forward to hopefully sorting out some breaks for xc training and then being able to get in gear to be competing at BE80 this year having not been able to jump last year

  • Whilst spread over many years, I have in the past, competed at all national levels of eventing. I have set myself the aim this season of doing all the classes in one season….this would be a major achievement for me, as an “elderly” amateur, as it would mean….
    ……. getting my baby (rising 5) horse to his first event and progressing from 80 to 90…..
    ……then getting my accident prone middle horse back out at 100, & then back to novice without him finding a new way of injuring himself…..
    ……& then getting my intermediate horse going well enough to look for an advanced run.
    I’m not sure whether I’m excited or terrified ….or just plain insane!

  • I am most looking forward to the start of the season because it means we have had the worst of the weather ! I love going to events with my mum we have such a enjoyable time together, she’s become my best friend and groom all moulded into one. She’s brilliant and I wouldn’t change our days out eventing for anything.

  • I’m looking forward to my new ‘contract’ with myself – to focus on each event and each discipline in its own right; to learn and enjoy in the moment, instead of thinking about next year, wanting to be doing bigger and better, and being disappointed if that doesn’t materialise. So happy we are nearly about to start and Spring is dawning 😉 Good luck everyone x
