EP116: Making Progress with Limited Time

In this episode, I’ll share my thoughts and strategies about what I do with my horses when I am traveling a lot or when my schedule is more erratic. It’s a really common challenge for busy people who want to make progress with their horses. This episode will give you ideas about how you can make progress even when your time with your horse is inconsistent.

EP115: Confidence is over-rated

In this episode I’ll talk about beginner’s luck, beginner’s mind, and the scale of competence, and how confidence can be over-rated… all inspired by a couple days in the kitchen making macarons for the first (and second) time. When I go into the kitchen, interesting things often come out… hopefully, this podcast is one of them.

EP114: Yoga with Cathy Woods

Cathy Woods, creator of Body, Mind, Equine (TM), and author of Yoga for Riders; is a pioneer in combining yoga, mindfulness, and horsemanship to improve horsemanship from ground to saddle through the use of yoga postures and principles; supporting mindfulness in horsemanship and supporting equestrian wellness. In this podcast, I talk to her about what it means to create your own personal practice and how it can create more unity between you and your horse.

EP112: Complicating The Half Halt

In this episode I will explore the elusive, confusing, mystifying mystery known as the half halt – the dressage student’s white whale. Many other teachers have gone before me, claiming to be able to simplify it, demystify it and clarify it but they end up just complicating it. I’m usually pretty good at explaining things… So is this episode going to clarify or confuse or complicate the half halt even more? I guess you’ll have to listen to find out.

EP110: Dream, Observe, Root, Play

In this episode, I’ll share a summary of a recent 4-part Video Series where I give 4 valuable lessons on how to improve how your horse moves, and each lesson has an exercise. I’ll lead you through a process of dreaming, observing, going back to determine the root of any issues, then explain how to use playfulness to improve your horse’s posture and way of moving.

EP109: Warwick Schiller

In this episode, I talk with popular clinician, educator, & podcaster, Warwick Schiller. Warwick comes from the reining world, where he was NHRA Reserve World Champion. He since has gone through a transformation in how he trains and teaches. In this conversation, we go into horsemanship, the horse business, personal development… and so much more!

EP107: Grid Exercise

In this podcast I’ll explain one of my favorite exercises that can be done at a basic or advanced level. I call it The Grid and it can improve communication, seat connection, engagement, balance, timing, feel… I could go on and on. I think you’ll love playing with this!

EP105: Horses In Training

In this episode I am joined by DN Licensed instructor Shawna Lewis to talk about the challenges students have had with putting their horses in training. We’ll share stories of when it worked and when it didn’t, and will give tips for how to set yourself up for success if you think you need to put your horse in training.
