I don’t work for the Horse Radio Network, but I can’t be the only rabid fan out there. They have saved me countless times at work, plugged into my ears all day and staving off boredom one show at a time. I have no idea how I functioned without them.
Who likes podcasts?
Even if your answer is “no” or “what’s a podcast?”, I’m sure you still like listening to interviews from top riders and professionals from all disciplines. And I’m positive that you like free stuff. How about $4,000 worth of prizes (amazing equestrian equipment and clothes!) doled out every hour for 12 hours straight, plus a massive and magical grand prize valued at $1,500?!
To clarify, the Horse Radio Network is an internet radio show made of of 10 individual equine podcasts, ranging from dressage to driving to natural horsemanship. You can download their app for iphone or android phones, then select and download episodes to your heart’s content. This year, they are hosting a Holiday Radiothon. It will be held on November 28th (cyber Monday), starting at 9 AM and ending at 9 PM. You can listen to it live from their website or app if you have wifi, or you can download all 12 hours later and listen at your leisure. They will be interviewing 24 amazing guests and answering hundreds of listener calls. The theme this year is holiday memories and your “fantasy ride”.

I already sent in a voice mail where I sang a horse related “We Need a Little Christmas”. Perhaps I should note that I am a terrible singer, in case you do decide to tune in and you have to hear my awful voice. I did it in solidarity for the show and for the prizes, not for the glory!
You have four more days to enter! I wish all of you luck and winning vibes.
In other news, I have a lot to report on in the horse front in the works, so check back later this week.
Happy horsing around!
