    Earlier this year H&H scooped the awards for “most informative”, “best YouTube” and “best use of social media by a magazine in UK and Ireland”.

    “We were delighted to win three ESMAs last time and hope that our fabulous social media fans and followers will help us to pick up more awards this year,” said H&H web editor Carol Phillips.

    The PagePlay Equestrian Social Media Awards (ESMAs) were set up in 2010 to bring together the global equestrian community and show how beneficial social media is for horse lovers and businesses.

    “Social media has proved itself to be a revolutionary communications tool, which has been embraced by the global equestrian community. Love of the horse transcends borders, seas, and language. Social media has allowed global equestrians to connect in ways never before seen,” said Liam Killen from the ESMA team.

    “We were delighted with the support the ESMAs received from equestrians internationally in 2011.

    For the 2012 awards, the introduction of the regional categories, based on the FEI’s regional groups, and the FEI World Award will help us achieve our goal of connecting the global equestrian community through social media.”
