Amanda Watson

Managing Director, Watsons Directories Ltd (publish The Equestrian Index, The Yard Supplement and equestrianproperty4sale.com)


Amanda is passionate about and has been actively involved in the equestrian sector on both a personal and professional level for well over thirty years. Amanda holds a BSc(Hons) Equine Science, is a qualified coach, has managed equestrian facilities in the UK and overseas, lectured to degree level in equestrian subjects and worked in sector development. Amanda now oversees the day to day running of search engine The Equestrian Index, The Yard Supplement magazine, the search engine equestrianproperty4sale.com and hosts and produces the monthly podcast ‘This Business of Horses’.


Amanda is never happier than when she is able to offer a genuine solution or new perspective on a business problem and believes that listening, flexibility and a willingness to try something out of the ordinary are key to the strength and longevity of the relationships Watsons Directories forges with its clients across its platforms. When she is not wearing her WDL hat/s, she can be found brushing mud off her 33 year old gelding William, walking the ‘obedient’ Finn, being deafened by live music and generally appreciating the finer things in life – perhaps not to be expanded upon here!
