In this note we derive a simple Bayesian sampler for linear regression with the horseshoe hierarchy. A new interpretation of the horseshoe model is presented, and extensions to logistic regression and alternative hierarchies, such as horseshoe+, are discussed. Due to the conjugacy of the proposed hierarchy, Chib's algorithm may be used to easily compute the marginal likelihood of the model.
