Today we had the pleasure of speaking with Erik Jacobs of Riding Resource who we met at the Pam Slim event a few weeks ago. Riding Resource is a website that enables equestrians to search for all things riding related or as their website says,
“Riding Resource is the only fully-searchable online database of riding stables and tack stores that lets you find exactly what you’re looking for. Founded in 2007 as a way to help riders connect with local facilities, Riding Resource is unique in that our visitors can fine-tune their searches with specific criteria in regards to location and services offered.”
Ainsley Hyman (who could not join us this time) and Erik built the site due not only to their love of riding but also because they saw that such a service was lacking within the riding community. Many of the over 13,000 database entries were painstakingly researched and added by hand by Ainsley herself. It is through their dedication and hard work that Riding Resource has become THE place for finding everything from stables, breeders, vets and beyond.
A big thanks to Erik for joining us and we’ll have him (and Ainsley!) back in a few months to check up on them and see how things are going.
For the second part of our show, we did a few interviews at the Pam Slim event. Again, that was a great event so definitely check out what people had to say if you weren’t able to attend. We hope Pam will make it back to Atlanta sometime soon!
