Welcome to wildexpanse!
The girl with the horse-shaped heart.
Hi there, my name is Phoebe Meadows. I’m a horse-crazy gal from the UK. I didn’t have my own horse growing up, but every summer my grandmother would take me to my extended family’s horse farm in Wales. That’s where I fell in love – at the tender age of 6 years old – with the best four-legged animals on earth.
Here I am with my sweet cousin Siân and Rainbow’s End:
Beyond horses, I also love fashion, being outdoors and everything to do with US Western culture. So as well as a whole bunch of horse training, riding, and care tips you’ll also find cool articles on clothing, fun stuff around cowgirls and boys, costume ideas, gifts for horse lovers, and name ideas.
I started this site because I want to share my love of horses and nature with nice folks like yourself, but also to help out as many people as I can by sharing useful and well organized information.
My hope is that you will find a little something that will make your horse life a bit easier, or bring you some joy on your journey into the wild expanse.
My mission on this site is to help you get the most out of every single horse-related experience you have.
How I Create Content:
All the content you will find on this site has been carefully researched, planned, and edited by me to ensure we meet the highest quality standards. I write most of the content myself, however, I do sometimes use freelance writers to help me with my workload. Nothing is put online without a green light from me, the chief editor. This is to ensure all information we publish is accurate and that you can trust it to make trips and purchase decisions.
As much as possible we try to get our hands on the items mentioned in this blog to get real-life experience with them, but it is not always possible so we also rely on extensive online feedback from real customers of these items.
In addition, I spend a lot of time talking to the community and to the staff of relevant companies to get to know what products are out there, which ones are well-loved and which new ones may be of interest to you.
All in all, I want this site to be a place you can trust. We are not sponsored by any brands, so you can use our information to make the best decisions for yourself when it’s time to make a purchase to further your personal horse journey.
