I’ve binge-listened the whole thing!

Love this podcast. I am an adult who is not nearly as far along with my horse as I’d like to be, and am trying to break into the show scene. Listening to the podcast keeps me motivated this winter in New England! Helpful product reviews and relevant news.

Wonderful

Love this podcast. It is like hanging out with girlfriends while you commute. Always a fun way to pass the time in the car. Sometimes I have to finish an episode in the parking lot before I go into the office. The topics are relevant and varied. There is something for everyone who loves horses. Oh and the recipes are great too. Cheers!

Approachable and funny

I am a new rider who started late in life (age 29). I am now horsey obsessed and need everything to be related to horses, horse care, horse training, how to not look stupid on horses, etc.
I am so grateful to have found this podcast. It’s like I’m hanging with all the horse friends I wish I had in real life. Please keep up the great work!
