H&H has been nominated for three categories in the inaugural Equestrian Social Media Awards by followers of social media.

The magazine is up for category 8 — best use of social media by a magazine, category 12 — most informative and category 1 — best YouTube channel.

H&H website editor Carol Phillips said: “I’m delighted to hear that H&H has been nominated for three of the categories in the Equestrian Social Media Awards.

With over 70,000 fans on Facebook and over 6,000 followers on Twitter, we find social media is an excellent way to interact with our readers. If you enjoy what we do then please take a moment to vote for us.”

Voting closes at 1pm on Friday 18 February.

You don’t have to vote in every category and can only vote once — votes will be tracked.

“We’re thrilled with the response,” said the awards’ co-founder Liam Killen from Abbeyview Equine. “We had 80 sets of votes in the first 20 minutes.”

Co-founder equestrian PR Rhea Freeman added: “Since Liam posted the link to the voting pages, Twitter has been alive with happy people and it’s great to see.

“I am thrilled with the volume of people who have voted already, and love how positive this is for all those who love and are involved with social media in the equestrian world.”

Nearly 4,000 nominations were made in 10 days.

There were so many that each category had to be split into UK/Ireland and international.

Winners receive a certificate and will be asked to send a short YouTube clip to used in the Equestrian Social Media YouTube ceremony.
