Equine Network Has Acquired Horse Radio Network

Equine Network, LLC (“Equine Network”), the market-leading tech-enabled data and membership services platform to the $130 billion US equestrian industry, has announced it has completed its acquisition of the Horse Radio Network (“HRN”), one of the longest running independent podcasting networks in the world.

The expansion of Equine Network’s capabilities to include the Horse Radio Network fits naturally with the company’s plans for growth and mission to present innovative content and engaging digital experiences designed to inform and entertain their target audiences.

HRN produces a portfolio of podcasts that span across equestrian competitions and horse ownership. The podcasts include Horses in the Morning, the Dressage Radio Show, Adulting with Horses, and many more. Combining Equine Network’s Podcast Group with HRN will result in over 30 podcasts, with several more to be launched over the next year. The combined podcast platform will give smaller podcasters the opportunity to join the Equine Network’s podcast group and leverage relationships with larger advertisers, and will also provide advertisers a new way to connect with more focused audiences.

“The Horse Radio Network is very excited to be joining the Equine Network and adding its terrific podcasts to HRN,” Glenn the Geek, founder of the Horse Radio Network, added. “I am personally excited to continue to host Horses in the Morning with Jamie Jennings and to be running podcast operations for Equine Network. We would like to assure Horse Radio Network listeners that we are still going to be there for you providing the programming you have come to know and love.”

“Equine Network is thrilled to add the Horse Radio Network to our lineup of extraordinary brands,” said Melissa Kitchen, Vice President of Video and Creative Services at Equine Network. “Together, the range of the Equine Network and Horse Radio Network podcasts will ensure there is a podcast every horse person will love.”

Katherine Bateson-Chandler Featured on Horses in the Morning Radio Show

Wellington, FL (December 1, 2016) — With the winter dressage show season fast approaching in south Florida and the World Equestrian Games scheduled to be held on the United States east coast less than two years from now, top U.S. dressage riders are filled with anticipation. Horse Radio Network’s talk show Horses in the Morning invited one of these riders, Grand Prix competitor Katherine Bateson-Chandler, to the broadcast’s “Omega Alpha Equine Monday Edition” to give the inside scoop on what it’s like to prepare for the show ring as the gaze of international dressage turns to the U.S.

An online podcast of Bateson-Chandler’s interview is now available on Horses in the Morning’s website, in which Bateson-Chandler shares her thoughts on planning for the World Equestrian Games (WEG), the upcoming Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida, her bond with her superstar mount Alcazar, and the invaluable boost she gains from training with British Olympian Carl Hester.

The road to the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) will offer triumphs and inevitable challenges for standout horse-and-rider pairs who hope to compete in the Tryon, North Carolina event. Bateson-Chandler is already working hard to prepare for the WEG – one of the biggest events on the global sporting calendar – and spent this past summer competing in Europe and training with Carl Hester.

The radio show was quick to get right to the question on most riders’ minds – one that Bateson-Chandler was happy to answer – which was whether or not she has actually ridden Valegro while at Hester’s facility. “I have!” she said. “Carl and Charlotte Dujardin both are very open with their horses, so pretty much everybody rides everything. That’s great fun!  And Valegro truly is what he seems to be – he is the most special horse in the world, and I have been around a lot of special horses, international and otherwise. There is something about him that is so gentle. He is such an old soul.”

Despite Valegro’s allure, there is another horse that fills Bateson-Chandler’s heart. “One hundred percent I believe horses have a ‘person,’” she explained. “Alcazar is my special boy.” The Dutch-bred gelding affectionately known as “Lonzie,” owned by Jane Clark, has trained up the levels to Grand Prix with Bateson-Chandler. “When you spend every day with a horse, there is a bond you can’t describe; you have to feel it. We know each other so well. He has a lot of character and tries really hard, with enough spice that keeps every day interesting. He is back up and running after colic surgery last summer, and he feels better than ever.”

It takes years to develop the superior strength needed for international competition. Muscle development, plus the best feeding and supplement regimen, is crucial. Bateson-Chandler uses several different all-natural Omega Alpha products to keep Alcazar and her other equine partners in top shape. “Across the board, the horses like the Omega Alpha Gastra-FX. Omega Alpha’s philosophy is to create healthy horses by starting with the gut, and I totally agree. Every vet I speak to says to start with the intestines, the inside of the horse.” Bateson-Chandler’s supplement of choice for equine pain relief is Omega Alpha’s Antiflam. “Antiflam is amazing for my high performance horses working at the international level. I Iove the thought of taking inflammation out of their muscles in a completely natural way.”

As plans for the 2018 World Equestrian Games begin to form, Bateson-Chandler is first intent on the Wellington show series at hand. With her personal and professional mentor Olympian Debbie McDonald, she will choose Florida shows to compete in and will look toward next summer in Europe, as well. She will project backwards from the WEG, planning her qualifying period and where she needs to be month-by-month, season-by-season. “I always have a greater idea in mind of what I want to do, but again, you learn that things can change. If you wait until the year of the championships to plan, you are behind the eight ball. Everyone is planning now, to be honest, even towards the Tokyo Olympics. Absolutely, this is a very important season.”

Horse Radio Network Hits 5,000 Episodes

Horse Radio Network Hits Record Episode Milestone

Ocala, FL (October 1, 2016) – The Horse Radio Network announced today that they’ve reached a record 5,000 published podcast episodes since the company’s launch in August of 2008 when the network began with just one show, The Stable Scoop Radio Show.

Not long after Stable Scoop was born, however, a second show was produced. This one, titled “The 2010 Radio Show” covered all things related to the World Equestrian Games held in Lexington, Kentucky that year. The early success of these two shows became the leverage (and inspiration) for eight more shows produced by HRN, including the wildly popular daily show, Horses in the Morning.

Starting with just two hosts and one adventurous sponsor, the Horse Radio Network now features 27 hosts, over six thousand guest segments, dozens of media partners, and some of the biggest sponsors in the equestrian industry.  HRN shows cover a variety of interests like carriage driving, eventing, dressage, horsemanship, and life!

HRN founder and CEO, Glenn the Geek, says, “I am so proud of my team, who has worked endless hours to make this happen. We are highly respected in the podcasting world because of our dedication to making this technology the leading new media platform in the world.”

“Most of all,” Glenn says, “having a partner you can trust and rely on is invaluable for the success of any small business. In this case, it is my wife, Jennifer, who has devoted her time, energy, and incredible knowledge to this endeavor. For that, I am truly grateful.”

“As Glenn’s first co-host at HRN, I had no idea what kind of adventure we were embarking on,” says Helena Bee, host of the Stable Scoop show. “Neither of us knew where this journey would take us, but we had big visions for where it could go. Our listeners have been a huge part of our success.  We cannot thank them enough for joining us on this journey, and for being such great traveling companions!”

Listening to shows on the Horse Radio Network is very easy. Listeners can stream or download episodes at their convenience on iTunes, any podcast player, the HRN website, or by downloading the FREE Horse Radio app for iOS or Android.

Horse Radio Network Features Equestrians Margaret McIntosh and Katie Jackson

Jupiter, FL – April 5, 2016 – Horse Radio Network’s once-a-month Para-Equestrian Show featured equestrians Margaret McIntosh and Katie Jackson with hosts Lindsay McCall and Regina Cristo.

To listen to episode #357, please visit: http://www.horseradionetwork.com/2016/04/03/dressage-radio-episode-357-by-uspea-getting-ready-for-selection-trials-and-a-newcomer-preps-for-nationals/.

About Margaret (Gigi) McIntosh: Margaret McIntosh broke her neck in the spring of 1999 while riding in an event, resulting in incomplete quadriplegia. Initially paralyzed from the chest down, she is eternally grateful for having the opportunity to regain her mobility. McIntosh had extensive riding experience before her accident: 1970-1976 Working student for May and Denny Emerson; 1976-1979 Working student and barn manager for Gunnar Ostergaard and Ellin Dixon; 1979-1983 Working student/groom George Theodorescu in Sassenberg, W. Germany; from 1987 through 1999 Gigi evented several horses with lots of help from Bruce Davidson, culminating in completing the CCI*** and CCI**** at Rolex Kentucky 3-Day in 1997 and 1998. Six months after her accident she began riding with Jane Cory, the owner of the Cort Center for Therapeutic Riding at Pleasant Hollow Farm in Pleasant Valley, PA. She initially asked Missy and Jessica Ransehousen for help just before the World Equestrian Games in 2010 and has enjoyed their expertise ever since. In 2012, McIntosh qualified for the London 2012 selection trials including successful trips at back-to-back CPEDI ***s in Wellington, FL. McIntosh was also the Reserve Champion at the 2014 USEF Para-Equestrian Dressage National Championships. Married since 1983, with two grown children (Charlotte (27) and Cameron (25)), and her husband, Brian, a retired banker. McIntosh is now aiming at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio Di Janeiro with her own Rio Rio.

About Katie Jackson: Katie Jackson was born and raised in a small town in Southern Oregon.  Always a bit horse crazy, her mom finally gave in and Jackson took her first riding lesson on her sixth birthday. Jackson continued riding through high school and always found a way to keep horses in her life through college and dental school.

Jackson attended the University of San Diego for her undergraduate degree, receiving a bachelor’s degree in Biology.  For dental school she decided to stay in California, attending the UCLA School of Dentistry. After dental school she did a postgraduate residency program for general dentistry which took her to San Antonio.  While in San Antonio she fell in love with a Texan who happened to live up the road in Austin. Jackson and her husband have called Austin home for nine years.  Jackson currently owns and manages a private dental practice in north/central Austin.  When not at the office, she is out at the barn or outdoors with her husband and two labs.

Jackson’s life changed last summer when she went to the doctor for a second opinion on the pain she was having behind her knee.  At 35 years old it was quite a surprise to be diagnosed with cancer.  The type of cancer she had was a rare type of soft tissue cancer known as a Clear Cell Sarcoma.  Amputation of the leg above her knee was her only option to make sure this aggressive cancer was removed.  “I feel very fortunate that my recovery has gone as smoothly as it has,” said Jackson.  As soon as she could, she was back out at the barn.  Being around horses has been not only therapeutic but also a big motivation to work hard on her physical therapy.

Jackson explained, “Being able to ride and compete again was a goal from the day I heard my diagnosis.  I knew I needed some direction on how to starting riding again and started looking into para-dressage.  It just so happened that the U.S. Para-Equestrian Dressage National Championships were in being held in Katy, Texas.   Just three months after surgery I headed to go watch the show.  It was incredibly inspirational to watch the beautiful, talented riders.  Above everything, I was thankful for the warm welcome that I received from everyone I met and all the great information I received about riding again.”

She continued, “I was most apprehensive about how to get back on safely and what my balance would be like without having my leg.  To get back in the saddle I had the help of a therapeutic riding program in Austin known as H.E.L.P.  This was a great way to gain confidence in the saddle again in a safe environment.”

In January Jackson went to Florida to watch the CPEDI3* in Wellington. For Jackson it was a worthwhile experience getting to watch the riders compete and to also attend the symposium featuring FEI 5* judge Carlos Lopez and U.S. Team Chef d’Equipe Kai Handt.  Whence returned two weeks later to watch the second CPEDI3* she received her official classification as a Grade IV Para-Equestrian.  In February, Jackson went to Dallas to ride with Kai Handt, hoping to have him evaluate her riding.  On that day Jackson had the opportunity to ride multiple horses and fell in love with one sweet, bay gelding. Jackson now calls that gelding Wembley her very own. In March Wembley and Jackson went to their first show with a goal of qualifying for the U.S. Para-Equestrian Dressage National Championships. The duo completed their goal and will head to Michigan in June for the National Championships.

Once a month, the Dressage Radio Show becomes the Para-Equestrian Show Hosted by Lindsay McCall, of the United States Para-Equestrian Association, focusing on international FEI discipline Para-Dressage. Although Para-Dressage is the main event, listeners have the opportunity to learn more about the skillful U.S. Para-Driving Team, the Para-Reining discipline, Para-Vaulting, and the future of Para-Jumping. The para-equestrian dressage show will feature a line-up of guests including Olympians, Paralympians, trainers, coaches, professionals, amateur riders, young riders, and equine enthusiasts. The intention of the radio show is to educate, inform, and entertain listeners on the para-equestrian Dressage discipline.

Eduardo Menezes and Caruschka 2 Win $35,000 Douglas Elliman 1.45m Classic to Start WEF 10

Wellington, FL – March 16, 2016 – Week ten of the 2016 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF), sponsored by Horseware Ireland, began Wednesday morning at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) in Wellington, FL with a win for Brazil’s Eduardo Menezes and Caruschka 2 in the $35,000 Douglas Elliman 1.45m Jumper Classic.

WEF 10, sponsored by Horseware Ireland, features CSI 3* jumper and ‘AA” rated hunter competition running March 16-20, 2016. The week features the $35,000 Ruby et Violette WEF Challenge Cup Round 10 on Thursday, the $35,000 Illustrated Properties 1.45m Classic on Friday, the $130,000 Horseware Ireland Grand Prix CSI 3* on Saturday, and the $35,000 Suncast® 1.50m Championship Jumper Classic on Sunday. The 12-week WEF circuit runs through April 3 offering more than $9 million in prize money.

Michel Vaillancourt (USA) is the course designer in the International Ring for WEF 10. First thing Wednesday morning, Vaillancourt saw 63 entries with 17 clear rounds over his 1.45m speed track. Twelfth to go in the order, Menezes and Caruschka 2 raced through the early morning fog to clock the winning time of 59.44 seconds.

Richie Moloney (IRL) and Equinimity LLC’s Alsvid finished second in 60.30 seconds. Ronan McGuigan (IRL) and Capall Zidane placed third in 61.39 seconds, and Daniel Coyle (IRL) and Susan Grange’s Tennyson earned fourth place honors in a time of 61.77.

Menezes has owned Caruschka 2, a 12-year-old Oldenburg mare (Caspar x Continue), for five years and has a great partnership with the talented mare. She came from breeder Gestüt Lewitz, and Menezes purchased the mare as a seven-year-old after she went to the FEI World Breeding Jumping Championships for Young Horses in Lanaken, Belgium.

Speaking of his winning round with Caruschka on Wednesday, Menezes stated, “This mare is a very good speed horse. I think it was a very good course for her. She has a huge stride and you can take strides out here and there, and in the end it works great.”

“She is a very sweet horse. She has a lot of character,” Menezes detailed. “On a daily basis, she is a hot horse to ride, but she will never buck or spook. She is very easy to handle at home, but when she gets to the show she knows that she is here and then she gets her engine really going. Then I just have to hold the reins and let her go.”

Caruschka 2 and Menezes will compete next in Friday’s $35,000 Illustrated Properties 1.45m Classic and then compete in three classes during week 11.

In the spring, Menezes and his horses head to Europe. Menezes then has his sights set on the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro with his top horse, Quintol.

Also competing in the International Ring on Wednesday, the $6,000 1.40m speed, sponsored by Illustrated Properties, was held in a California split. Laura Chapot (USA) and Mary Chapot’s Shooting Star won Section A, and Clementine Goutal (USA) and Arao Enterprises’ Caballito topped Section B.

The tenth week of competition at the 2016 Winter Equestrian Festival continues on Thursday with the $35,000 Ruby et Violette WEF Challenge Cup Round 10 featured in the International Ring. The High Performance Working Hunters will award championship honors in the E. R. Mische Grand Hunter Ring. For more information and full results, please visit www.pbiec.com.

Chester Weber Featured on Driving Radio Show with Horse Radio Network

Photo courtesy of Pics Of You.

Louisville, KY (November 3, 2015) — Fresh off two consecutive wins in Kentucky, where he clinched his historic twelfth USEF National Four-in-Hand title followed by a victory in the FEI2* Four-in-Hand division at the Hermitage Classic CDE, Chester Weber had a chance to sit down with the Driving Radio Show to talk all about his endeavors. Hosts Glenn the Geek and Dr. Wendy Ying of Horse Radio Network covered topics such as the new horses joining the team that Weber and Jane F. Clark have put together, and Team Weber’s extraordinary record twelfth national title. They also took a look ahead at the 2016 edition of Live Oak International driving and show jumping competition, to be hosted by Weber and his family in Ocala, Florida, this February.

Weber is featured on Episode 224 of the Driving Radio Show, called “Chester Weber, Live Oak Announcements, and The National Drive.” Find and listen to the episode at any time at www.drivingradioshow.horseradionetwork.com.

Recounting his past summer competing in many Four-in-Hand competitions across Europe, Weber is glad to be back in the States. “Competing from May to September is a long time; it’s nice to sleep in my own bed again,” Weber joked, adding that it was even nicer to see his son, who just turned a year old. “He’s getting big. He’s walking. It’s exciting. I took him out in the carriage with the big horses. He’ll be driving his own team soon.”

Nurturing young talent has been part of this new father’s game plan for much of the season, as Weber introduced new horses Danzer and Zeppelin Let’s W to the competitions in Kentucky. “I’m really pleased. The young horses did really well and we’re using them for bigger and bigger tours.”

The inclement weather conditions Team Weber faced in Lexington to win their twelfth USEF National title, particularly in the Marathon phase, did not deter them from reaching their objective. “By European standards, it wasn’t muddy at all,” he grinned. “Our goal this season was the national championship, with a different grouping of horses. So it was a nice testament to have that, that this new group of horses could hat trick and win across all three phases,” said Weber.

While back in Ocala, Weber and his show management team are working on delivering another exceptional line-up for the annual Live Oak International competition. “It’s taking shape,” Weber told the radio show hosts. “It’s coming up early this year, at the end of February, and we have some interesting new things planned, like a kids’ play area, as well as exploring some new options for covering all the action during our live feed.”

The 2016 Live Oak International, as Weber enlightened, will debut a Preliminary jumper division on Saturday, a World Cup qualifying grand prix on Sunday, and there is a “pretty good chance” that the Budweiser Clydesdales will return for a visit. “The show,” Weber said, “continues to not stand still.”

Nor does Team Weber. Follow news, live posts, video and photo galleries of the national champion team, and their preferred product reviews at www.chesterweber.com. Find and listen to the episode at any time at www.drivingradioshow.horseradionetwork.com.

Horse Radio Network Live from Disney World Stables Wednesday

Ocala, FL (September, 28, 2015 ) – As the number one equestrian podcast network in the world, Horse Radio Network will be celebrating International Podcast Day by hosting Horses in the Morning live from Tri-Circle D Ranch at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
