    Episode 39: Ben's interview for 'Best Horse Practices Podcast' - Purpose Vs Progress

    Episode 39: Ben's interview for 'Best Horse Practices Podcast' - Purpose Vs Progress

    Ben was recently interviewed for Best Horse Practices Podcast with Maddy Butcher and we share it here with permission.

     

    This will make a third visit for Ben on the show. In past interviews, he’s had great insight to bitless options as well as nervous horse help. In this episode, we talk about the evolution of horsemanship and different directions people are taking the horse-rider partnership. He often sees the extreme ends of a spectrum but notices a lot of interesting developments in the middle. It’s a really nice interview we hope you’ll enjoy.

    Episode 36: Ben Longwell - ”Just A Trail Rider”

    Episode 36: Ben Longwell - ”Just A Trail Rider”

    Are you just a trail rider? I hear this statement all the time in my clinics and on social media - "I'm just a trail rider..." As if to set the expectation low right out the gate. In this episode, we discuss the need for great communication and proper riding no matter what you intend to be doing in the future with your horse. The need for a trust-based partnership to deal with the 'unexpected' when it happens and the importance of gymnastic development of the ridden athlete - all this and more make up the responsibility we have toward the horse regardless of how simple our riding may be.About "Life in the Saddle" Podcast: Join horseman Ben Longwell as he shares stories & adventures and interviews extraordinary men and women in the equine and ranching industries to gain insight into horsemanship and life itself.

Filling in some holes

So glad I found this podcast! Insightful!! Love the parallels to colt starting, as I’m amidst the process. I feel like the explanations are filling in some holes that I had. Will be listening to every episode from start to finish! Great way to expand my knowledge. Thanks!!

Ben Longwell and Anna Blake ,

American Cowboy in New Zealand, Episode 10

Two thoughtful, articulate, experienced and deeply compassionate horse trainers talking about how they think about what they do. A really great podcast!
