The Shire Horse Society will mark its 140th birthday next month (16-18 March) at one of the world’s oldest horse shows. The Shire Horse Society National Show was first held at the Royal Agricultural Hall in Islington, London in 1880 —run then by the English Cart Horse Society — and is one of the longest-lived, almost-continuous horse shows on record.
Followers of the Fernie were treated to a uncommon sight this week when rare breed enthusiast Bruce Langley McKim debuted his Suffolk horse on the hunting field. Imposing nine-year-old Craikhowhall Jensen has been a working stallion for most of his life but was only recently introduced to a ridden career.
A teenage rider who says her pony helped her recover from a brain tumour is organising an equestrian-themed fundraiser to support research into the disease. Lily Hawkins, 14, is hosting the event to mark Wear a Hat Day, which takes place across the UK on 29 March to raise money for the charity Brain Tumour Research. Lily was just six when she began suffering bouts of headaches, balance-loss and vomiting and was diagnosed with a grade one pilocytic astrocytoma tumour.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
