    Ep 39 // Love Without Conditions

    Ep 39 // Love Without Conditions

    I've gone back and forth on whether to do this episode or not... annnnnddddd here we are. Be warned, this is a very emotional episode. This episode is dedicated to my late mare Tiger (she's the podcast cover photo), and all that she taught me. I explain some more about how I lost her, her history, why TWE is even here, and expand on a recent instagram post I did about love that comes with conditions. ✦ www.TheWillingEquine.com✦ Instagram.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ YouTube.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ Facebook.com/TheWillingEquine ✦

    Ep 38 // When Horses Don't Like Food Reinforcement

    Ep 38 // When Horses Don't Like Food Reinforcement

    It's not that common, horses not wanting to take food from a human, but it happens to varying degrees from time to time... So I think this is an important topic to address! What do you do when your horse doesn't want to take food from you, but you want to train with positive reinforcement? In this episode, we take a deeper look at the statement "my horse doesn't like food, or working for food" and problem solve why that might be! ✦ www.TheWillingEquine.com✦ Instagram.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ YouTube.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ Facebook.com/TheWillingEquine ✦

    Ep 35 // Aggression Within The Herd

    Ep 35 // Aggression Within The Herd

    I can't tell you how many times I've heard, and continue to hear, about horses that can't be turned out with other horses because they are too aggressive or.. because the other horses are too aggressive towards them. It's unfortunate that the individual horses are often blamed for this, or that it's considered a problem that has no solution many times, when really there is a LOT we can do to provide our horses with the peaceful social lives they need ✦ www.TheWillingEquine.com✦ Instagram.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ YouTube.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ Facebook.com/TheWillingEquine ✦

    EP 34 // Conversations With Family, Friends, and Professionals

    EP 34 // Conversations With Family, Friends, and Professionals

    This longer episode all about having conversations with family, friends, and professionals within the equestrian community who have a different approach to keeping or training horses than you do. It's also about dealing with negativity, skepticism, and criticism from those who don't understand why you keep and train horses the way you do. At the end of the episode I invite my listeners to share with me their own stories! I only mentioned sharing stories where you've made a positive influence on other people, but I'd love to hear of how someone else made a positive impact on your horsemanship journey as well. ✦ www.TheWillingEquine.com✦ Instagram.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ YouTube.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ Facebook.com/TheWillingEquine ✦
