In 2011, Flik Founder Mindy, wrote one blog for a magazine about her first experience of Endurance Horse Riding. Flik evolved from there to what it is today from that simple little 700 word article.  It's been a huge journey of continually changing and adapting according to the feedback from her readers and customers.

So when someone suggested she try vlogging it seemed only fitting to give it...

A horsey life isn't an easy one to choose, but ask any one of us horse loving addicts and we will tell you that we wouldn't change it for ANYTHING!  Horsey make us happy, they make our heart sing, so our true resilience always shines for them.  When you own horses, everything in your life is impacted and it can be ridiculously challenging to achieve your equestrian or pleasure riding goals. It might be a challenge of money, time or even just finding the motivation when the rest of life is so exhausting.  Flik Journals have two sections for goal setting;...
