The idea for Oatsnews.com came to me back in 2009. Over the years, the site has grown and evolved into the enormous news and informative site it is today. It includes hundreds of local stories and provides helpful information for equestrians riding in Massachusetts. I’ve gone to every corner of the state to cover events and wrote barn profiles to create a comprehensive resource for the local equine community. With 4,000 individual visitors to the site monthly, I must have done something right!
However, it is time for me to take a break from Oats and focus on other endeavors. It has been incredibly fun going to different types of events, learning about the variety of disciplines, and most importantly, getting to know all of you!
I hope you too have enjoyed Oats. The site will stay up a while longer so you can still submit articles, find barns in the area, browse photos, and get details about shows, trail rides, seminars, and competitions in Massachusetts.
Who knows, if there is enough interest, I will pick it back up next spring!
Until then, enjoy your horse(s) and the wonderful equine opportunities Massachusetts has to offer!
