#113 Here’s What No One is Going to Tell You When it Comes to Horses



Have you ever felt like you don’t fit into the typical mold of a rider because you don’t compete, or maybe you don’t even want to? 

Do you sometimes feel like your journey with your horse lacks a place in the western world? 

Today’s episode is dedicated to those riders who often feel unrepresented – the ones who ride for the love of the horse, not for the ribbons or accolades.

In this heartfelt episode, I dive into the myriad joys and profound connections that come from simply being with your horse. We’ll explore the unbreakable bonds forged in quiet moments, the peace found in early morning rides through nature, and the resilience built through overcoming setbacks and injuries. I share my personal journey of rediscovering my love for horses beyond the show pen and how horsemanship is a lifelong journey of growth, not perfection.

It’s about finding fulfillment in every ride, every lesson, and every quiet moment spent with your horse. I’ll share insights on starting a young horse, exploring new events, and even the magic of watching your children ride your heart horse.

Join me as we embrace the beauty of horsemanship beyond the glitz and glamor of the show pen. Let’s celebrate the unique paths we take with our horses and the strong mental game that helps us shine, no matter where we are on our journey. 

If you’re ready to dive deeper into the true joys of riding and build a mental game that supports your growth, tune in now. Your journey to becoming a more thoughtful, connected, and confident rider starts here.
