Want to chronicle your journey to this year’s Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover? The Nation Media (Eventing Nation, Horse Nation, Jumper Nation) family of websites is inviting bloggers to bring readers behind the scenes on the road to the Makeover.

If you are a blogger (or would like to become one) and would like to share your pieces with Nation Media, here’s a loose look at what we’re looking for:

  • Strong writing with a penchant for creative storytelling and an ability to engage the relevant audience.
  • Ability to share one blog post per month.
  • Must be unafraid to present not only what goes well, but also the challenges that may be encountered during the journey to the Makeover.

What’s in it for you?

  • Exposure to thousands of loyal readers on whichever platform suits your discipline best
  • Your byline and dedicated author page on each blog
  • Promotion of your work on our social media platforms
  • Links back to your blog or website in each blog

Some of our RRP bloggers have even gone on to become part of the Nation Media writing team, which is to say we’ve really enjoyed meeting more writers through this process each year. We want to share your journey with more horse lovers just like yourself. To express interest in sharing your blogs, please see the below contact information for each Nation Media platform.
