Facebook traffic

Thank you so much for sharing the various alerts on our Facebook page. We find that we not only have a voice but we also render an invaluable service to those who might have lost a dog, be concerned by imminent theft of a horse or an issue of equine health.

As of today we have exactly 500 followers even though membership of the Hodgemoor Riding Association is 280. We welcome all Facebook friends (and if you would like to contribute to the maintenance of the trails and our efforts then please go to http://hodgemoor.org.uk/join/).

Our Facebook traffic figures are impressive. 975 people engaged includes those looking at our posts which you share or forward, thank you. A total weekly reach of 8,000 is excellent and one which many much bigger not-for-profit organisation would be delighted with. This includes shares, the same person seeing multiple postings and people who see a posting but might not read it… but it is still a cracking figure.

Hodgemoor Dressage and Top Score jumping

Many, many thanks to Jenien and Rik at Grove Livery for hosting the dressage and jumping today: £460 was raised for the Association which is amazing. Many thanks also to our Judge, Natalie Hosier, who was very constructive in her comments to the many entrants today who were there, many for their first ever tests, with young, newly broken, ex-hunters, ex-racehorses, you name it, they were there, dealing with high winds, piggies in a corner, children playing, clicking pylons, ……Then the Top Score jumping provided a lot of fun, with 17 entrants, with Chris Edmunds on Spotty winning the £100 prize, kindly donated by Balcomm Ltd and Grove Livery. And, it only rained once!!
