Jthurber ,

Informative and Encouraging

So often when working with our horses we can get caught up in our emotions and frustrations, which isn’t helpful to any situation. Colton shares a refreshing no-nonsense, clear-headed way of approaching and assisting our horses, showing us how to work ‘with’ them, not ‘on’ them.

Claire Sexauer ,

Inspiring and knowledgeable

So glad I found this podcast! Very inspiring in every aspect of the equestrian world and Colton is so knowledgeable! Listen to it while I ride and often get reminders on how and why I’m training and doing what I love! The BEST equestrian podcast for all disciplines!

HorsesHealHearts ,

Helpful, Insightful and Inspiring!

Awesome podcast...I listen to it as I arrive at the ranch, put my boots on, and feed the horses. It helps get me in the mindset of learning, rather than in my old mindset of conquering tasks. Thank you for putting this out there for us all and for your positivity!
