Glenn the Geek
Glenn the Geek founded the Horse Radio Network in July 2008. Starting with one show (The Stable Scoop Radio Show) and no listeners, since then the Horse Radio Network has now grown to numerous shows with tens of thousands of listeners from around the world.
Known as America’s Horse Husband, Glenn married into the horse thing about 30 years ago when he met Jennifer, his horse addicted wife. Together they ran a large training, boarding and lesson facility for over 10 years. Glenn learned to drive horses and his passion lies in being in a carriage driving ponies.
In the early married years Glenn and Jennifer owned an improvisational acting company that did over 450 shows in ten years. Glenn is a believer that entertainment comes first, education second and he transfers that belief to the shows he hosts on HRN.
