I have structured my podcast in 'seasons' that focus on a particular subject. The last episode or two in a season are often focused on answering questions that people have asked about the subject.

Season 1 (episodes 1-11) covers the Riders Mind. Topics include fear, failure, goals, mindset, competency and more.

Season 2 (episodes 12-21) covers the Riders Body. Topics include riders aids, strength, flexibility, breaking habits, muscle memory, bareback riding and more.

Season 3 (episodes 22-34) covers the Horses Mind. Topics include underestimating your horse, how a horse asks questions, training routines, correcting behavior and more.

Season 4 (episodes 35-49) covers the Horse's Body. Topics include forward motion, teaching whoa, disengaging vs engaging, improving steering, hot horses and more.

Episode 50 is a special episode discussing work life balance.

Season 5 is focused on tack and equipment.

Season 6 is focused on how I put these techniques and ideas into use with my horses.

Words from our Fans

About Stacy

Growing up, I shared a love of horses with my mother but neither of us knew what we were doing. Over the years we dealt with horses that wouldn’t load into trailers, wouldn’t pick up their leads and wouldn’t stand still to be mounted. I fell off more times than I could count and was bitten, stepped on and run away with before I was old enough to drive a car. There were many, many good times too. My favorite childhood memories all involve horses (and one ornery pony.)

It took me years to develop to the point where I became a successful competitor in a male-dominated industry. The beauty of this is that it proved that true strength is a mental game more than a physical one.

I believe in creating win-win-win relationships. I can show you how to reach your goals faster if you’re willing to put in the work. Whether you love trail riding, have goals of showing or would someday love to understand bridleless riding, I can show you the way.

…and yes I still clean stalls."
