    44. Ovarian Manipulation vs. Gelding Scar Manipulation

    44. Ovarian Manipulation vs. Gelding Scar Manipulation

    Mares and geldings, ovarian manipulation and gelding scar manipulation, myth or fact? Both of these seem to be two different sides of the same coin. On one hand we have our mares that find themselves in critical pain when their ovaries become unhealthy or twisted. On the other hand we have geldings that undergo a traumatic surgery that results in potentially harmful scar tissue developing. If you ask Facebook, everyone will yell from the roof tops, that some type of manipulation is necessary. But what does the research say? Do these conditions actually exist and are these viable solutions to help our horses?

    43. Bemer: Good MLM or Bad MLM?

    43. Bemer: Good MLM or Bad MLM?

    With many 5* events of the year firmly in the review mirror, we can all look back at the products we saw all over top riders Facebook pages and Instagram feeds. One of those products seen over and over again, was Bemer. The performance enhancing and new wave of therapy. And to be fair it sounds like a fun, simple, product upfront... until you discover that the company is an MLM, which sparks a heavy debate on whether Bemer is a good MLM or bad MLM? It begs the questions; Does the product work, is there research behind it, or do we have another LulaRoe on our hands?

    42. Death at the race track: The Juice Man

    42. Death at the race track: The Juice Man

    The lucrative world of fast horses, faster money, and custom drugs, runs rampant in the horse racing industry. With horse racing comes gambling, with gambling comes money. That desperate grab for monetary gain, gives way to an environment that breeds complete disregard for equine welfare and encourages egregious acts in hopes of a check. This is the story of the Juice Man, his race to glory and even faster fall of disgrace.

    41. Olympic Count Down: the most problematic Olympics in history

    41. Olympic Count Down: the most problematic Olympics in history

    While we all wait in eager anticipation for the Tokyo Olympic 2020 kick off, let's take a brief look back over the years. Some years have come and gone relatively smoothly, while a few others have crashed and burned in a dramatic, and at times tragic way for our equine friends. Challenging weather, doping scandals, medals being stripped from riders, and cheating teams...are just a few of the reasons that make these Olympics so memorable in a shocking fashion.

    40. When is it too hot to trot...

    40. When is it too hot to trot...

    Many equestrians pride themselves on not being fair-weather riders, but when does the not-so-fair-weather become dangerous? Better yet, how do we cool and keep cool our horses? There is a lot of misinformation roaming the equine world when it comes to cooling our horses, and a number of myths we need to debunk and questions to answer such as; Does cold hosing cause health issues, will your horse over heat if you leave excess water on them, and does your horse even need to be hosed or is shade good enough? In todays episode we answer these questions and more, to help keep our four legged friends safe during these steamy summer months.

    39. Bitless bridles: trials and tribulations

    39. Bitless bridles: trials and tribulations

    We've talked about what the research says with bitless bridles, but what do our horses actually think of the different designs? Today we share our own trials and tribulations we went through, while toying around with quite a few different styles. We give some tips and tricks for how you should approach buying a bitless bridle with your own horse, such as key features to look out for and potentially what to avoid.

Wow

It’s so down to earth. They might as well be the girls in the barn next door. Glad to see you’re still making content!

Science!

Love listening to the podcasts, and love to hear people who do their research! Can you do a podcast on temperatures/when is it too cold/to hot to ride?
