In February 2019, we launched the national Horse Wise podcast, where we share stories about horses and people — and what they teach each other.

Hosted by Lynn Reardon, the podcast includes interviews, tales of big personality horses and entertaining anecdotes about her learning experiences asa lifelong student of the horse.

As of September 2019, the Horse Wise podcast has listeners in 45 states (plus District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) and 11 countries outside the US (a total of 366 cities/regions overall). We are thrilled with the growing popularity of the podcast and look forward to future expansion!

The Horse Wise podcast shares stories of horses and people – and what they teach each other. Horses bring wisdom, humor, athleticism and inspiration into our lives. Join host Lynn Reardon as she encounters entertaining characters (horse and human) on her own horsemanship journey.
What kind of qualities does your dream horse have? Find out how I discovered my dream horse this year — much to my surprise and delight.

What's your dream horse like? Most people have specific ideas about what they want in their dream horse. They make a detailed list of qualities (like height, conformation, bloodlines, movement type, color, discipline training and so on).  For me personally, I never much believed in the idea of dream horses. The horses in my life had all crossed my path at the right time — rather than me specifically searching for a certain kind of candidate. None of them were perfect by traditional standards (they had sports injuries, personality quirks or imperfect conformation). But they all were good horses for me and I enjoyed our time together immensely. This year, I had to unexpectedly retire a 9 yo gelding due to EPM complications. Inspired by several friends who had acquired young prospects, I began a quiet search for a new horse. My list of ideal attributes was a little offbeat — so I didn’t expect to find a horse that matched them all. But then I met a 16H bay gelding who had the most important quality of all. One that wasn’t even on my list. I knew this horse was my next schoolmaster — and I brought him home immediately. His name was Cozy Kitten (a great name) — and he had recently retired from the track at age 11 (after 94 races). Listen to the podcast to find out why I chose him — and why I feel so fortunate to have found such an ideal teacher.

Did you find your dream horse? You and your horse could be on the Horse Wise podcast! If you’d like to share the story of how you found your dream horse — and why he/she is the perfect horse for you — please contact us. We are doing a series of interviews about dream horses and what they have  brought to their owners’ lives.
