Montana Cowgirl Kari Dell
Montana Cowgirl Kari Dell has lived around horses all her life. She comes from a long line of tie-down ropers. So many in fact, I wondered if there is a specific gene the family has that sends them careening down an arena. Montana is rodeo country and that’s where Kari Dell fostered her love of the sport. Here father has always favored the Roan Hancock line of Quarter Horses. Known for, let’s say their “spunky” attitude, Kari Dell is very familiar with horses having a lot of personality.
Kari Dell has combined her love of rodeo and her experiences with those horses into her first published novel, The Long Ride Home. Kari Dell is also a columnist for several local Montana papers and she has an easy, friendly writing style. Kari determination and cowgirl spirit kept her writing until she finally saw her book published. We caught up to Kari Dell on a cold Montana January morning where she shares a little about her life with horses and the inspiration for her book.

Welcome to the Whoa Podcast about Horses and Horsemanship. I am your host John Harrer. Along with my wife, Ranae, each week on the show we talk about some aspect of owning a horse. It could be feeding or supplementation. It could be bits and bridles, tack, or cowboy boots. We cover training problems, or competing in shows. We talk to farriers and horse chiropractors. And we travel to places we think you would like to take your horse. That’s what the Whoa Podcast is all about.
