Whoa Podcast 2.0 – Let’s Change It Up
Yes, I miss producing the podcast. Sure, I have other things to do to fill the time (like riding my horse). But, it simply got to difficult to schedule guests, record the interview, edit the interview, put together the open and close, publish it to the Stitcher, Spotify, iTunes, I Heart Radio, Google Play, and all the other places these go, then promote it on social media. So, let’s change it up.
I’m calling this new version Whoa Podcast 2.o. We’ll still talk horses and horsemanship, but the podcasts will be more frequent. If I can work it out with an expert or trainer or other interesting horse person, I will certainly have them on the show. The regular version, however, will be shorter. You may ask, what will we talk about?
There are hundreds of decisions we have to make as horse owners. What to feed? When do you change the bit you’re using? What sport do I want my horse to do? Where do I keep him? What happens when they get too old to ride? When will I know he’s too old to ride?
Most of the time we fumble our way through these decisions. then we wonder if we made the right choice. This is the stuff I want to talk about. I want to share with you the choices I make with my horse, but more importantly I want you to share what YOU do with YOUR horse. What criteria do you use?
Participation is Essential
Of course, you need to take part for this will work. We can use the Whoa Podcast Facebook page to communicate. You can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And, if you want to share your thoughts, talk about your horse and share your knowledge, we can connect on Skype, I record our conversation and play it on an upcoming podcast. My Skype name is JohnJHarrer.
Here’s What’s Coming Up
This was a big deal for me. My 19-year-old mare, Jessie. came up lame after a ride earlier this year. It was not the first time. We performed a lameness exam in 2016 which was inconclusive. What would be your course of action? While I don’t want to bring economics into the picture, there is not an endless supply of money. Do you have an emergency horse medical budget?
Next week I’ll give you Jessie’s full story with all the details. I’ll tell what we did and give you an early progress report. If you have had a mysterious health issue with your horse, I would love to hear it. Get in touch with me.
The following week, let’s talk about conditioning your horse. It’s been a long, cold, wet winter in many parts of the country. How do you bring your horse back into riding shape? Do you feed them more or are they fat from a winter of inactivity? Let me know.
Join Us on this Journey
I’m not the best community builder. I will need your help for that. I’m not the best at conversation. Let’s change it up together. I hope you will join me.
You are a big part of why we do this podcast. We really love getting your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions for the show. You can email us at John@WhoaPodcast.com
