Inclusive, insightful, and downright amazing
I cannot begin to describe how refreshing Bethany Lee’s podcast is. The equestrian world can often become fixated on showing, winning, and riding. However, Bethany Lee seeks out new concepts and unique perspectives in the horse world. Through this exploration of the breadth of equestrianism, Bethany is transforming the industry to be more inclusive and demonstrate the many levels at which we can participate. As a young rider who often feels hopeless in the constant emphasis on having the fanciest horse and going to the most shows, I find that this podcast fosters a healthy relationship with the equestrian world.
This podcast is by far my favorite equestrian media source.
Bethany does a great job giving her input and never speaks over the guest she's interviewing allowing them to fully use her platform to get their ideas, advice, etc across! Plus the guests are always 10/10. A must listen for anyone involved in the horse world! You will learn something new with every episode.
Best podcast ever
Bethany is the best, and every episode you learn something new!
