The Best Horse Practices podcast with Jec Ballou is an enlightened space for riders and horse owners of all disciplines to learn best practices and discover ways to connect better and make progress with their horses. It’s a collaboration between Jec, a renowned trainer and author, and Maddy Butcher, who runs Cayuse Communications and is the author of Horse Head: Brain Science & Other Insights.
From Jec and Maddy:
We believe in problem-solving, having fun, and engaging our audience. We believe in sharing our successes as well as our struggles. We believe in offering take-aways that answer not just the what, but the why and the how.
We interview people who are actively engaged in improving the lives of horses and their owners through best practices, be it directly through riding or through products, research, education, policy, or facility management.
We also have fun! Each podcast has a few elements that are distinct from the main conversation. It might as simple as a unique horse-related word, a bit of feedback from listeners, pet peeves, soap box stances, a poem, or stories of momentary and epic failure (Maddy’s personal favorite).
This podcast is a work in progress and will be made better with your input. We look forward to hearing from you. Contact us here.
