Sam Finden has had many jobs in his young life. Originally from Minnesota, after college Sam found his way into a life that included horses and has never looked back. He has always enjoyed writing and, with the horses, now he had many stories to tell. Sam's new novel, Saddle My Good Horse, is a western tale that involves horses, rodeos, and pretty girls. The book is a fun easy read. Sam is great at weaving a tale and involving horses. I really liked how he developed strong, healthy relationships between the main characters. Saddle My Good Horse is at it's heart a story of friendship and young love.
I always enjoy the stories on how people get to where they are. Sam has some great stories. He has worked on dude ranches. He helped train horses. He even tried to make a TV show around his love for hunting. He's developed many good friends along the way. Friendships he weaves into Saddle My Good Horse.
Sam enjoys life now in Montana. He owns two horses, is a fan of Downunder Horsemanship, and finds ranch worked based on the season. When we caught up with him, he was working in a night calving operation. Sam continues to write and tell stories.
Welcome to the Whoa Podcast about Horses and Horsemanship. I am your host John Harrer. Along with my wife, Ranae, each week on the show we talk about some aspect of owning a horse. It could be feeding or supplementation. It could be bits and bridles, tack, or cowboy boots. We cover training problems, or competing in shows. We talk to farriers and horse chiropractors. We talk about movies, books and magazine articles. And, we travel to places we think you would like to take your horse. That’s what the Whoa Podcast is all about.
