About EquiPepper

EquiPepper was born from Ruby’s love of Thoroughbreds and her desire to improve the reputation of Ex Racehorses. While studying Equine Science at University Ruby purchased her first ex racehorse and documented her progress retraining Scottie from racehorse to riding horse. This online diary became a university project and then evolved into EquiPepper, an award-winning Equine Blog dedicated to racehorse retraining.

Ruby is an Equine Science Graduate with a childhood love of thoroughbreds. Now working in Digital Marketing, she spends her free time working with ex racehorse Scottie and following her racehorses.

Highland Rain aka Scottie is the inspiration behind EquiPepper. But over the years there have been other horses and Ruby now owns shares in several racehorses.
