A horse owner must!
Love this podcast. It is very informative and also easy to listen to while working! I’ve listened to every episode. Thanks so much for doing this podcast!
Love it so much
I love this podcast. Not a ton of ads and promos, just real information in a straightforward delivery with a little humor (but not fluff) thrown in. Feels like I’m talking to my actual vet, not sitting in a seminar. I just wish there was more, more, more! I know it’s a vet, but riding tips from a vet’s perspective would be amazing too. Like warm-up/cool-down tips, footing thoughts, jumping/riding frequency, using boots/other extraneous tack, bits/saddles, everything!
A lot of information delivered in a succinct and understandable/usable format. Every horse owner should listen!
