Beyond the Saddle Podcast heads boldly into 2020 with new episodes that highlight the diversity of career paths in the equine industry, now reaching more audiences than ever thanks to a move to Pippa as its new distributing platform and partnership with EQUUS as its website home base.
Beyond the Saddle is focused on sharing the journeys and advice of many different professionals within the equine industry. The goal is to reach as many aspiring equine professionals as possible through personal stories from industry leaders that will inspire, encourage, and help shape the paths of those looking to begin a career with horses.
“I have been humbled and inspired by the character of the women that I have interviewed for the podcast. Each interviewee has been willing to get vulnerable by sharing her mistakes and best advice,” said Katie Clinebell, Beyond the Saddle Podcast producer and host. “The lineup of guests for 2020 is really exciting because we will be exploring even more industry careers, from professional grooms to leaders in corporate marketing and beyond.”
The first episodes of the year (Ep. 7 and Ep. 8) featured a two-part conversation with three-day event groom and barn manager Emma Ford. She manages Phillip Dutton’s barn in West Grove, Pennsylvania; has groomed at almost every 4-star event in the world; and has been a member of the U.S. Eventing Team at multiple Olympic, World and Pan American Games. In Part I, Ford shares what it takes to be a world-class groom, and in Part II, she offers the inside scoop on Olympic horses Connaught and Mighty Nice.
“Emma’s episodes have set a high bar for the 2020 calendar, and I cannot wait to continue down this path as the year progresses,” concludes Clinebell.
New episodes will be available every other Wednesday with a recap episode at the end of each quarter. Listen to the Beyond the Saddle on any of the following popular podcast platforms: Pippa, Spotify, SoundCloud and iTunes.
