Whoa Podcast About Horses Horsemanship

Aug 25, 2015

Halfway to the VHTC







We are 2 months in to the competition and Scratch is making progress.  It has not been without its ups and downs.  Get an update on Scratch's progress and hear what happened at the Tehachapi Mountain Festival Parade.

We are working hard to make a decent showing at the event.  There are many very good trainers.  I hope if you are near the southern California area, you will consider stopping by and cheering us on.

What do you think of this?

Storytelling has always fascinated me.  History, particularly oral history, fascinates me too.  What better way to hear a story than from the person telling it?  While I know I'm not the best storyteller, I have an idea for another podcast (or transform this show into something else) and I would like your help.  There are many great old stories cowboys tell.  Wouldn't it be wonderful to hear them as a podcast?  A storytelling show takes a bit more effort than an interview show, however, and I wonder if there is anyone out there who would like to collaborate on such an adventure.  I explain the rough concept in this show.  If you are interested, I hope you contact me at

About Us

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.
