Horses Aren’t Machines and Other Controversial Opinions

by | Aug 19, 2022 | Adulting with Horses

On Episode 6 of Adulting with Horses, Natalie and Heather let their freak flags fly (literally) but make sure to bring the treats too. We discuss why horses don’t have to be ridden constantly and how to keep them happy out of the saddle, self care and mental health, boobs over the age of 40 and much more. Put down the muck rake, turn up the volume, and let’s get a little weird!
