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!

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.

I’m a dedicated, hard working Adult Amateur who loves my horses, and enjoys showing a little more than my budget realistically allows. My animals come before my ambitions. This is why my 30 year old retired show horse has a forever home in my barn. I know that I will never show at the highest …
