2-3 other accounts you like: For great horse photos I love @landalucio, @ashleyneuhofphotography and @_thebookllc_. I also love @alexia_clark for good workout ideas.

Words of advice for a good IG account: My biggest piece of advice would be to keep your Instagram real! Post what you like and what makes you happy, and just be yourself.
