The ESMAs will have a series of seven videos (5 awards and 2 montage videos) showcasing the best and brightest of the equestrian social media community. I’ve just seen video #1, and it’s OUTSTANDING! Even if you don’t care who the winners are, it’s worth watching as an example of a well-done equine-oriented video; you can watch the videos this week at the official ESMA website.
I feel honored and awed to be a part of this list of only 181 finalists – these are truly horse people who are transforming our industry through social media. And having a good time doing it.
Here’s to all the winners, AND to every horseman & horsewoman getting onto their computer and mobile technology and connecting and sharing via Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, and all manner of social and online media. In the end, it makes us ALL winners!
