Testimonials

“Hilary is a key member of the media centre team at the annual Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials. She is the ultimate safe pair of hands, always conscientious, reliable and a pleasure to work with. She is able to turn around accurate, engaging copy when under pressure and up against tight timelines. Similarly she’s always willing and able to help and support other team members when required, dealing with everything from journalist enquiries to social media technicalities.”
Carole Pendle, Press Officer Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials

“Hilary was a front runner in adopting New Media into the traditional world of Equestrianism. Her pioneering website, Eventing Worldwide, set the standard for newcomers. Since 2014 Hilary has joined my team at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials as New Media consultant. In a short time she has become an invaluable part of our close knit media team. At Badminton we do not presume to sit in an ivory tower, so Hilary’s experience at many other Events is a really massive input. I would recommend her for any PR post in the sport.”
Julian Seaman, Media Director Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials

From copy-writing for our website and magazine features through to providing holiday and maternity cover for members of our Marketing team, Hilary is extremely experienced technically/online as well as being able to craft beautifully creative and engaging content.”

JBPromotions50“Hilary is a joy to work with and we liaise regularly on copy across a range of product areas. I trust her judgement and often seek her advice on avenues to explore and articles to develop. She writes beautifully – and accurately – as well as researching topics to give the content a real flare. She produces copy that is interesting, valuable and within the client brief and will work to tight deadlines if the need arises. We look upon her as a valued source of information and ideas.”

GPC75“I’ve known and worked alongside Hilary since the days of eventriders.com and eventingworldwide.com, and have used her services as a freelance writer and web producer. Having an extensive knowledge of eventing and horse sport in general Hilary is well connected, good at what she does and I have always found her to be completely insightful, genuine and reliable. She’s a professional with whom it’s a pleasure to work. I am proud to name her among The GPC’s top freelance team and would have no hesitation in recommending her.”
Andrea Worrall, Managing Director The GPC

“Manners Media created a website for my equestrian business. Not only is the website eye catching and modern, but Hilary takes all the stress away by keeping it regularly updated and sending me reminders when there is something that she needs me to do. This has allowed me to concentrate on the areas of my business that I am good at whilst still having a website that keeps up with my competitors. Hilary also handles my sponsorship matters and is efficient and approachable – I couldn’t do it without her!”

They understand Eventing, are happy to do updates any day of the week when something big is on, and are always on hand with good ideas for what might work on the website.

“My website was not working how I wanted it to and had become outdated and tired. Hilary and her team were incredibly helpful and professional, providing me with a bespoke website exactly as I wanted it. Nothing was too much trouble, and I am thrilled with the finished product. Having had a huge amount of positive feedback about the site I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking to build or redesign a website.”

CarolineM_TM100“I am a real technophobe and given my teaching schedule I’m rarely in front of a computer. To know that Manners Media are regularly updating my website with all my clinic dates, and that my clients find it easy to use means one thing less for me to worry about.”
