The Online Directory For Horse Lovers

This website is a comprehensive directory of equestrian businesses and equestrian bloggers.

The Birth

The idea for a equestrian directory came about after a meeting between Kevin & Garry.

After many hours of research and brainstorming sessions, we came up with the name of The Horse Life.

Joe then created the logo and we started the process of building the directory and setting up all the social media accounts.
