Hello There

Bits And Bays is an Equestrian Lifestyle Blog, here to bring you behind the scenes looks from the horse world through the eyes of a spunky Adult Amateur. Check in for Equine Photography, Product Reviews, Brand Features, and other goodies from both inside and out of the ring! As an added bonus, you can expect to see cameos from my three bays; Diva, Teddie and Jack Jack.

Nice To Meet You

My name is Betsy, and I am an Equestrian Marketing Specialist. I have worked with brands and barns alike to help build their empire through Equine Photography, Event Coverage, Writing, Design, Social Media Management, and Behind The Scenes Features. When I’m not traveling and helping brands reach their audience, I am riding and showing my own horses (a little herd of bays, of course – read more about them here!)

How to Stay Motivated for Winter Riding (or, how to not cry every day of winter)

Some of us live in states with weather that makes it very hard to stay motivated to ride during the winter. Here in the Pacific Northwest it can rain, and then rain, and then rain some more. Occasionally it will pretend to snow and turn back to rain. It gets dark (I mean really, really dark) before 5:00 PM for several months. Our pastures become slop holes of despair, and our horses are regularly covered in muddy clay from hoof to ear. Thrush, abscesses, rain rot and other bacterial and fungal infections are a very common nuisance for many of us. Through all that, we can manage to keep ourselves motivated to ride with a little extra help.
