Horse Podcast Ep 257: Horsemanship – Cowboy Dressage – Scandinavian Ponies

Horsemanship or should it be called horseladyship? This past weekend Heather attended a horsemanship clinic where many new techniques were shared and a few new muscles were found. While all levels of riders participated it was fascinating watching how each progressed.  From the young girl on the pony up to the experienced rider on their faithful equine partner. In today’s episode, Heather gives us the inside scoop on attending a horsemanship/cowboy dressage clinic. And like all of our great podcasts, she also shares with us some information on the Scandinavian breeds of horses.
