Who is Abigail Pinehaven?
I am a horse game youtuber, and I own a content creation company called Pinehaven Productions LTD. I was born on the 21st of May, and I have been doing Youtube since 2016!
As soon as I was allowed to be on computers I loved gaming. It started with web games like Bella Sara, Animal Jam and Moshi Monsters, then it was Minecraft, then Star Stable, then The Sims, Skyrim, and eventually Red Dead Redemption 2, Days Gone, The Last of Us and other big game titles.
I have loved horses ever since I was little. I loved playing with Barbie horses and watching anything that had horses in it, such as My Little Pony and The Saddle Club. I was also fortunate enough that my parents got me riding lessons on and off from the age of 7-15. After that it was difficult for me to be around horses regularly, and I discovered the horse game 'Star Stable Online.'
In fact I loved Star Stable so much that I created a channel dedicated to making videos for it. And the rest is history.
What kind of content do you do?
Pretty much any sort of horse game content! This could be top 10's in Red Dead, new horse game reviews, Minecraft building videos, Rival Stars breeding videos and so much more. I used to be purely a Star Stable channel (hence the name) but I have since branched out into more variety! You can also find my ingame photography on Instagram, fun games and events on my Discord and sometimes I post to my TikTok or Twitter.
How did you become a Youtuber?
My channel started as just a hobby in 2016. I was only 15 at the time and I was actually pursuing a career in acting. I attended two acting schools outside of mandatory education, chose GCSE drama and even completed a foundation year at Rose Bruford when I was 18. However when 2020 rolled around and the whole world shut down, I turned my focus onto my channel full time and have been lucky enough to have grown to a size where I can comfortably call this my job.
Why do you have a company?
Creating Pinehaven Productions LTD in 2021 was an important (and scary) step for me. It is a way for me to engage beyond my "YouTuber" status to the wider gaming profession and industry.
At the end of the day, 'doing Youtube' means you have to learn a lot of skills: writing, editing, presenting, hosting, streaming, managing and on top of that, playing A LOT of different games everyday.
Where I have endeavoured to create entertaining and informative content over the years, I have learnt a great deal about gaming and the role horses play in these experiences.
I have even been lucky enough to recently work as a game consultant where I had learned quite how much information I had accumulated after years and years of playing games and creating content. ''Horse Games'' is one of the biggest under-served markets and I hope to help change that in the coming years.
Is Abigail Pinehaven Family Friendly?
All of my videos are carefully curated to be clean and family friendly, unless it is stated to be for an older audience at the start of the video. Even my Red Dead Roleplay videos are shot and edited in a way that makes everything free of sensitive footage or strong language.
My audience used to be a lot younger when I first started, however my analytics show that my biggest age range is from 18-24. With that in mind, I still intend to keep my channel available to watch for all ages.
