Hollywood loves a horse (and so do I, obvs). Is there anything more majestic than a horse running across the big screen? But in film after film, there are so many things that annoy any horseperson watching. Here are a few of my pet peeves (get it? because horses are ... nevermind). Plus, a scene from trail riding with Apollo, meet friend of the show Rex, and an update on Meredith and Apollo's plans to continue their cross-country journey. Watch the YouTube version here &n...

Well, that was a strange year, wasn’t it? Things got a little crazy in my life, as they probably did for you too… but the good news is, it’s 2021 and the podcast is BACK! Woohoo! This episode is a not-so-brief update on what Apollo and I (well, mostly just I) have been doing for the last few months while not recording. Apologies for the sound quality.

Healthy as a horse

Healthy as a horse

Keeping Apollo healthy is my number one priority. Careful considering is necessary for everything he eats, everywhere he sleeps, every step he takes. Of course, accidents still happen – sometimes they are unpreventable – and this, too, requires a unique strategy when you’re traveling the backroads of America by horse! What do I love as much as horses? Reading about horses! It’s a rare day that doesn’t include time with my nose in a book. Let’s talk about a few of my recent (a...

The big question of the moment – and, honestly, at any point in the ride – is where have we been and where are we going? (Yes, I know that’s two questions). With the uncertainties of travel restrictions and safety during this COVID-19 epidemic, that question is more relevant than ever. Plus, special guest Lisa of Willow Domestic Violence Center joins us for a very informative conversation about domestic violence, including useful advice on talking with teens, helping victims, and f...
Apollo and I encounter dangerous, rude, and hostile drivers every single day. Whether we’re riding though a city or in the country, on a busy highway or a quiet dirt road, bad drivers are everywhere. The five types of worst drivers are people who honk, people who yell, people who are impatient, people who drive too fast, and people who drive too close. Here are stories of the very worst of each of these five types of bad drivers that we have dealt with during the last 8,200 ...

In this episode, I share some of my favorite foods and food experiences from our travels, what Apollo likes for treats, and some surprising regional delights.
