My Favorite Podcast!!

Any and all equestrians can enjoy learning from this podcast! Alicia maintains an interesting pace and is adept at guiding guests to provide practical applications of theory and science. While the focus is hooves, many aspects of care and training are discussed.

Valuable information for any horse person!!

I started my “hoof journey” a little over 6 months ago. I dove right in to the deep end of the pool not having any idea how complex hoof care really is! These podcasts have been so helpful in understanding and encouraging progress! I love the casual format and the variety of topics! Thank you, Alicia Harlov!!!
