@redeemedcowgirl ,

So good!

Thank you Heather for your constant flow of great content. I love how she verbally explains what she has experienced and learned in a way that you can take and apply directly to your horse the next ride. We can learn so much from our horses about ourselves, God and life and Heather includes it all to better help her audience grow and mature as quality horsemen and horse women. Keep up the great work Heather, cheering you on always!

LOVE this!!!

“I am a big fan of the blog and I have all the books! Heather is not like most other barrel racers. She really believes in having strong foundations with your horse and the power of mental game. I absolutely love the podcast because I can’t listen when I’m in the car or walking. Please keep going:)”

Episode about things learned from Buck and Tom etc.

I can’t believe I just listened to 10 minutes about you and 3 seconds of actual advice from the big names you mentioned. Advice already widely available for anyone who has watched the movie Buck. If your gonna drop names at least have some substantial reason.
