Whoa Podcast About Horses Horsemanship

Christmas Greetings 2021

Christmas Greetings 2021

I want to offer a Christmas Greeting for 2021. We had a pretty good year of shows. We began by talking with Dan Dauphin about bits. Dan has since begun his own podcast and is killing it with loads of great content. I hope you’ll check out his Adult Onset Horsemanship Podcast.

We talked to my friend, Joanne Galbraith, who at 82 is still actively riding and full of stories growing up with horses. I really enjoy talking with some of the more - how to say it - riders in their golden years. People like Nancy McKnight who taught hundreds of children about horses through the Pony Club organization. And we visited Michelle Gilles, horsewoman and trainer, working to promote women and Horses.

We explored new disciplines like Horseback Archery and competitive trail riding. My conversation with the owner of Billy Cook Saddle, Adam Trenk, about saddle making in today’s market had some great history about this respected company.

We explored travel with Kate Pilcher and mounted drill teams with Dust n Diamonds. And, we learned more about show judging with AQHA and NRCHA judges Patti Carter and Bill Enk.

There were these and many more episodes you may want to check out if you haven’t heard them all.

I’ve got plans for more interviews for 2022. As of this recording, COVID Omicron is on the rise. We have plans to travel and record episodes with trainers and at events. We may have to wait and see how it all plays out. The whole situation makes me so much more thankful that I have and can enjoy my horses. When I’m out on the trail with my horse, the rest of the world simply fades into the background.
