Friday Video from SmartPak: Why’s Piggy Vlogging? Total Geekery, As It Turns Out

It feels like a special treat this year to enjoy regular vlogs from British eventer Piggy March, particularly as — by her own admission — she’s never been particularly into the social media ‘thing’. But, as she explains in her latest instalment, she’s always been totally obsessed by the minutiae of eventing, and keen to absorb as much extra information as she can, by working on yards at the start of her career, watching other riders, and quizzing them about their methods.

And so now, the record-holder for the most wins in a season wants to give back, by sharing all the nerdy little details of a year in her life with all of us. Whether it’s rider fitness, bringing horses into work, structuring schooling sessions or hacks, preparing for competitions or — we predict — winning a few big ones, all the highs, lows, and educational moments will be shared on her new vlog. We reckon there’s rather a lot we could all learn from the superstar competitor — so we’ll be taking notes.
