Best Horse Practices Podcast

Mar 8, 2023

Please accept my apologies as we initially uploaded an erroneous file for this great episode. Sorry times ten!

We offer these shows for free. If you think it’s worthy of a small contribution, we sure would appreciate it.

This is episode 20 of season 3 and we have the second and final installment of Summit storytelling! These stories were recorded at the Best Horse Practices Summit, the conference that I direct. 

Last week on the podcast, we featured Josh Nichol, Katrin Silva, and Nahshon Cook. Today, it’s Daniel Dauphin, Patrick King, and Amy Skinner.

Our storytelling sessions are roughly based on the following parameters: stories must be around 10 minutes or less. They must be true and told in first-person. They must not be a rant of any kind.

I think you will agree that these stories help us appreciate that even very successful horsemen and women, people who may be our role models and mentors, are still human, with their own paths and struggles, successes and failures. It’s nice to take a break from our typical podcast fodder, I think, and dive into the stuff that has shaped who these clinicians are at this point in their lives and careers and how they got there.

You’ll also here board member Marika Saarinen in this recording, as she served as our emcee. Oh, and stay listening after the storytelling as we have another poem by Sampson Moss, a talented horseman and hat maker from Alberta. He’ll recite his poem, Fixin’ Fence.  

Our title sponsor is Lucerne Farms, producers of quality forage feeds.  Forage is chopped, packaged hay. Sometimes it’s alfalfa, sometimes timothy, sometimes blended, and sometimes with a touch of molasses. Always scrumptious. After hay and grass, it’s pretty much the best alternative and a great way to supplement your winter feeding. 

Sampson Moss is a cowboy, cowboy poet, hat maker, and heavy duty mechanic. He majored in agribusiness in college and was raised in southern Alberta, Canada. Did I mention he makes beautiful hats? For information on ordering a custom hat, head over to Prairie Wind Hat Works

By the way, Redmond Equine is sending a complimentary syringe of Daily Gold Stress Relief to everyone who drops a tip in our donation jar. Pretty cool and a $15 value. If you get something of value from our podcast, please consider making a donation. We sure would appreciate it. 

That’s it. Another episode in the can and out of the barn. Thanks for listening, y’all.
