Endurance Horse Podcast - Episode 19

Welcome to Episode 19 of the Endurance Horse Podcast


Publishing on July 1st 2019.  


The weather through May/June for Wisconsin was a little wet, though mostly beautiful.  Today we are welcoming in July with some hotter weather and a threat of storms for a week!  Just yesterday high winds caused a large tree to fall across our driveway, and also our lean to to blow over onto it’s back!  With the help of two ropes, Jim & I on the ends of them, and three strong kiddos on the backside of the lean to we where able to muscle it over.  Farm kids are good kids :) 

In episode 19 you will hear from a Montana rider, Joy Kinion, with her first time sending in to the podcast. I had contacted Joy, not knowing that she and Bridget had a connection and it was neat to learn that it was actually Joy’s daughter who had came along to the Fort Howes ride to watch Bridget’s daughter!   Mom’s helping moms!   I encourage you if you use Instagram to follow Bridget @thismomrides


It is winter in New Zealand & we will hear from two of our favorite Kiwis, Daryl Owen and Jenny Chandler and how winter is going for them there!

Erin Glassman shares her experience of her first 100 and Brooke Spears shares about her very recent first 50 in Texas.  I love all the stories that got sent in for this episode (what’s not to love?) Dawn Kerr’s audio has some very intriguing family ties to Tevis history to it, and somehow cows keep showing up in this podcast in Dawn’s post and one other…I think I have heard of two endurance riders who actually had taught cows to ride around the farm when they were young girls!   

And last, though certainly not least!  One of my favorite Marvel Endurance riders from Down Under, Adriana Sardoni,  gives us an update before she heads for the Tom Quilty Cup.  best of luck to you and Victoria! I do believe that Jenny Chandler, Victoria and Adriana are going to do a meet up at the Quilty so we all look forward to hearing from them later in July! 


Without further ado, I bring to you episode 19 of Endurance Horse Podcast, may you be encouraged, inspired and find a few riders you can relate to or at the very least, laugh with!  Please let me know how you are enjoying the podcast by sending us an email.
