    037 Rider Weight

    Whether you like it or not rider weight matters, particularly if you are in a sport like barrel racing. The more weight a horse has to carry, the slower they are going to be. And speed (or lack thereof) shouldn't be your only concern. Carrying extra rider weight is hard on a horse physically, as many studies have shown. Learn about the impacts here.

    035 Wearing Spurs

    035 Wearing Spurs

    Should you be wearing spurs? Never? Sometimes? All of the time? On certain horses? If you ask some people, they will say absolutely not. There is no reason that you should wear spurs. In this episode, Katrina pushes against that and advocates for the use of spurs in certain situations, arguing that they can be an extremely useful (and completely humane) tool to use. Give it a listen!

With some relatively simple solutions you can get through spring without going through March mud madness!

    032 Is Your Horse In Pain?

    Is your horse in pain? For a question that seems so straight forward, you may not always have a clear answer. While sometimes a horse that is in pain will show obvious signs of their distress, this is not always the case. Horses tend to be very stoic animals that have evolved to hide their pain, which makes your job as a horse owner that much more difficult. Listen to this week's episode to learn about all of the ways that your horse may give clues that they are in pain.
