Volunteering - Tips to Getting in Free
Have you ever wondered how to volunteer at those large horse events? Or what about working abroad at a horse facility? Today's EQA podcast is sharing insider secrets on just that. Probably the most important thing to remember is no volunteering job is too small if it gets you in the door. Being the gate opening at the warm-up ring may seem like a small position however you will get to watch all the jumpers.
Murder Mystery on Horseback
If you love books, this is the perfect place for you. Once a month, Heather, Ute, and sometimes Krystal, will talk about their favourite horsey book. In today's episode of the EQA Book Club, Ute is talking with Valerie Power about her first book October's Fire, a murder mystery taking place in a small community in California. Things heat up when a wildfire threatens the life of its inhabitants.
Adventuress - on the Move
Do you know what you would do if you had to move your family and horses to a new farm? Today's episode Adventuresses on the move share that exact story. Stay tuned as EQA 186 takes us through the highs and lows of moving to a new farm! Heather is chatting with fellow Adventuress Kari who had to move. Kari shares with us the process of having to find a new place in a short window of time, how to prioritize what they needed, and how lucky they were to find a piece of paradise.
Competitive Trail Riding - Fun & Horsemanship
In today's episode, I am talking with Alice Perryman about her favourite equestrian sports: Competitive Trail Riding.It is a little bit like an endurance ride, but slower and it involves different obstacles you have to tackle during your ride under the watchful eye of a horsemanship judge. By the end of the day, it is all about having fun with your horse, helping each other and camping.
Shagya Arabians - Talented Allrounders from Hungary
Today we talk about another Austro-Hungarian horse breed again, the Shagya Arabian whose modern home is in Hungary. I am talking about this versatile breed with Louise Adensamer from Austria whose family has been breeding Shagya Arabians for several generations and keeps them in the heart of the city of Vienna.
Montana - Big Sky Country!
Montana is a destination you want to add to your horseback riding bucket list. Montana the 4th largest state by land location is home to some of the best backcountry horseriding you will find. If you want to be a cowgirl for a day or even an entire week, there are working ranch holidays all over the state. Give your hand at roping, maybe even branding on an authentic dude ranch. Montana has something for everyone, horseback riding, fishing, soaking in hot springs, all with an amazing backdrop of scenery
I LOVE this podcast! The stories of these women who have had adventures all over the world and the challenges they often faced makes me feel that if they can do something like this, my own smaller problems can be overcome as well. I think my favorite episode is the one about the woman who rode across the Scottish Outer Hebrides. The horse she had was a problem horse that many trainers tried to help but were unable to. This gutsy lady decided a nice long ride was just what this horse needed! Talk about inspiration! Anyone who has had trying times in training a horse will definitely enjoy hearing her story I love to travel and I love horses but I think anyone would find these interviews with these amazing women a real asset to their podcast library
Love the travelers stories
I’m not a horse rider myself but I love these tales of adventure. So empowering and inspires me to keep exploring the world!
