Horsemanship Radio is proud to be a part of Horse Radio Network represented at the 2015 Podcast Movement, an international podcasting conference held this year in Fort Worth, Texas, and happens to be the largest podcasting conference in the world. Founder of the Horse Radio Network, Glenn Hebert developed it into one of the top five podcasting networks in the world, as announced at the conference last week. It’s a unique position for an equine Internet radio show to be among the most successful podcasts in the world.
Their growth happened with a lot of hard work and a belief that if you have fun, others will join you. One show grew to eight and two hosts grew to 20. Now 130,000 listeners in 92 countries have sought out the network. To date, HRN has 4,200 episodes, has featured over 6,000 guests and has reviewed over 600 products. The largest show is ‘Horses in the Morning,’ airing every weekday morning in a radio-style format that’s unlike anything else in podcasting, especially in the horse world.
With an impressive 70% sponsor retention rate, no doubt the sponsoring companies including Equestrian Collections, Omega Alpha, Kentucky Performance Products, Index Fund Advisors, Omega Fields and Monty Roberts University believe in and commit to HRN.
“We owe much of the success of HRN to our fabulous hosts,” Glenn humbly states. “We are so lucky to have the most entertaining, engaging hosts in the world of podcasting.” Glenn and his wife and partner, Jenn Hebert, a longtime horsewomen herself, have been pleased with the response the show is getting by guests and listeners.
Podcasting is now going mainstream, assuring HRN can continue to dominate the horse world in Internet Radio.
Listener responses have been generous: “The Horsemanship Radio Show with Debbie is so good that although you air them on Horses In the Morning, I listen to them again on their download because they are just so inspiring. Jen’s updates about Pablo are interesting as my Quarter Horse doesn’t seem to be real keen on going to our weekly lessons.” Shae, Canada
