Equestrian Social Media Awards 2012

I've just had the most amazing news.

Bridgewater Riding Club has reached the final of the Equestrian Social Media Awards 2012, in category 11, Best Event/Competition. It is a global awards competition and to put it into perspective, we are alongside major National and International competitions Badminton, Blair Castle, Burghley, Global Champions tour, Olympia, Kentucky, Hickstead and Your Horse Live!

If you could spend the time to vote for us, it would be very much appreciated.

If your read this blog frequently you will know I help out Becky at a local riding club in Northwich called Bridgewater Riding Club. It is grass roots level, supporting those that can just about walk sitting on a pony for the first time to those over 30s bombing round a Show Jumping ring enjoying the time of their lives. I must say it is a humbling experience and I enjoy supporting the community a lot.

My job is to look after the Communications. One side of that is the Social Media aspect. Talking to our members is really important. Sports Club committees can keep the doors closed. It's refreshing to have the backing of our Chairman Ruth Watson who is very proactive in encouraging conversation. We are very open, all comments are read out and discussed at committee meetings and we encourage discussion on our website, Facebook and Twitter feeds.

I've blogged about our Search Engine results previously which have also been very positive.
