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!
“So you make the wrong thing difficult and the right thing easy. You just fix it up, and let him find it.” -Ray Hunt
Like many riders, I’m prone to trying extra hard to get something right. If at first I don’t succeed, I try, try again. But sometimes it’s much better to not TRY so hard. Instead, slow down and take a step back — so you can see the situation from a different perspective. Trying hard usually means you’re already expecting to fail. You can put effort into things, you can put in steady, good work — but trying too hard often closes your mind and gets you fixated on a particular approach. Instead of trying to make something happen, instead experiment with setting up a situation so that you and the horse can learn together.
At Horse Wise, I teach people tools so that they can learn how to coach themselves and their horses to progress together as a team. It’s a fun process that shows you how build a good partnership with your horse (in a practical, straightforward way).
