Equestrian Lockdown: Expectations Vs Reality - MirrorMePR
You are here:

Our Equestrian Marketing Team take a light-hearted look at what lockdown has meant for them. Did our equestrian experts’ expectations match up to their self-isolation reality… err no!

Expectation

Now I’m not riding, I’m going to exercise everyday.

Reality

Week 3 of lockdown: Still laid on sofa eating chocolate.

 

 

Expectation

I’m going to use this time to have a good clear out of all horsey wardrobe. Anything that doesn’t fit, I’m going to donate or sell.

Reality

Laid on the bed crying because your favourite pair of breeches no longer fit.

 

Expectation

I’m going to do nice things for me for a change. Things that I never get time to do, such as pamper beauty stuff, doing my nails and facemasks.

Reality

You can’t even get in the bathroom because everyone is home all of the time, let alone have a relaxing pampering session.

 

 

Expectation

I’m going to watch lots of great content, informative content and expand my horsey knowledge.

Reality

Binge-watching Netflix box sets and watching funny cat videos on YouTube.

 

 

Expectation

I’m going to do all my horsey laundry, so it’s all lovely and clean.

Reality

In-depth discussions with the rest of the household on why your horse’s saddlecloths and lightweight rug laundry is so essential right now. *bite tongue and do not reveal that you always wash them at home usually anyway.

 

 

Expectation

I can browse online shops, and I don’t have to buy anything.

Reality

After browsing online for half an hour: I NEED more *stuff

 

 

Expectation

I’m going to have a massive clear out of my horsey hoarding.

Reality

Five hours later and everything is back in the same boxes with absolute conviction that you may just take your dressage horse around a cross-country course in those now vintage tendon and fetlock boots one day. And yes, you never know if you’ll need that spare of the spare thingy.
