Ten Tips for a Better, Safer Boarding Barn

If you want horses to be your livelihood, there are best practices that will help ensure you do that, and you do it well. In all fairness to the horses, we owe it to them to make their homes safe, comfortable and as as low stress as possible - for them and for us. So listen in for ten tips that will keep your horses safe and you sane!

RideIQ with Kyle Carter
Helena welcomes Canadian 5* eventer, Kyle Carter this week. Kyle is part of the team behind an innovative new app called RideIQ, a digital teaching tool designed to help riders in all corners of the globe have access to top-level instruction without having to travel to get it. Kyle’s take on riding is first and foremost about horsemanship, and whether we keep our horses at home or with a trainer, they can’t be truly happy unless we spend time working on our own skills in the saddle. It’s an essential part of horsemanship for anyone who tosses a leg over the back of a horse.
This is a very interesting conversation, so listen in!

I am learning so much from randomly skipping around the order of your podcast. Hi will continue to listen to each and everyone. Thank you so much!
Very good interviews
I’m pretty critical of most of the equestrian podcasts available these days. I won’t go into detail because I figure they’re making the best effort they can. However this one is very good. I’ve heard about 6 episodes thus far and learned a lot of practical tips and information. Just listened to the one on hay this morning and was impressed. Audio has been fine too.
