Ever wondered who is behind the BHM and how and why they ended up creating a mag just for you?
Our BHM Founder & Editor: Lindsay Setchell, BSc (Hons), PGCE, AANHCP
Before becoming the Editor of the BHM I worked in the Film & TV industry, taught as a Science Teacher in secondary schools and ran my own barefoot hoofcare business as a qualified Natural Hoofcare Practitioner.
As a trimmer most of my clients were spread far and wide and in an attempt to create some kind of community between them I started to send out the odd newsletter here and there. People began to love the newsletters so much that someone once casually said ‘why don’t you start a magazine’. Oh yeah right I scoffed, knowing nothing about the publishing industry…it was a steep learning curve from there, and I’m still learning!
Our Designer & general all round very hard working person: Sharon Larder
I’ve been a graphic designer for 20 years, specialising in magazine design. I started in newspaper publishing before moving to an established magazine publishing house in Bristol.
In the mid naughties I changed my life and moved to Spain to renovate old houses. But I was soon drawn back to my love for graphic design and I now work as a freelance designer. Being offered the chance to work on such an inspirational magazine as BHM was a true delight, as I myself have a background with horses, learning to ride at a young age, going on to train as a riding instructor and in my teens having the honour of owning one of the best horses in the world.
