    How equipment design impacts motivation and skill acquisition. A conversation with adventure sport athlete and designer, Corran Addison.

Nowadays company's are designing equipment scaled for children, and designed for women. Many coaches understand how impo...

    Evolving Trends in Equestrian Journalism. A conversation with Sara Bref and Dr Petra Andersson.

    I reached out to Sara Bref after reading a translation of one of her articles for the Swedish equestrian magazine Hippson. After a brief exchange of emails, I invited Sara to be a guest and Sara asked if she could bring Petra with her.

I hope that you enjoy listening to the co...
