Carol Phillips

Website editor

H&H’s website editor has been part of the editorial team since the website first went live back in October 2000, when she joined the launch team as a sub-editor. Since Carol’s promotion to online editor, the website has grown into an extensive resource for equestrian information of all kinds, which is frequently top of google searches for all horse-related topics. Carol is responsible for all of H&H’s online content, including social media and e-newsletters, as well as overseeing the news desk across print and online.

Carol has reported from numerous Badmintons and Burghleys, as well as the likes of Olympia and HOYS, most commonly as part of the H&H Live service, as well as running that service during numerous championships, including the London Olympic Games. She always has her finger on the pulse of the latest equestrian news and opinions via social media.

Not born into an equestrian family, Carol learnt to ride at her local riding school from the age of eight, and had a number of ponies on loan during her teenage years, while she was a member of the Flamstead branch of the Pony Club. Carol has since owned a handful of her own horses, the first of which was gifted to her, and has enjoyed starting and schooling many others. Her current horse is a former Flat racehorse who she competed successfully in affiliated eventing up to BE100 level until he sustained a tendon injury. After a long rehab, the pair are now enjoying competing in dressage, with the occasional fun jumping outing for variety.
