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 concept of turning loose is very important in horsemanship. When a horse “turns loose” and trusts a person, it is such a key moment. The horse essentially allows the person to guide him fully — even into unknown situations and circumstances. It is not exactly submission (in my opinion) — it’s more of a voluntary surrender to allow the person to fully direct his feet, mind and body. It’s an honor and privilege when a horse lets down his guard and allows himself to trust a person. In this episode, I share the story of Ellie, a fierce little mare who could not turn loose — even when it was a life or death situation.
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).
