Episode 12: Interview with Cole Cameron

October 2, 2021

Was incredible to catch up with Cole again, learning more about his adventures and growing up with Craig Cameron as his dad!

About Cole: Cole Cameron was raised in the cowboy and western way of life. Born in Arizona, raised in Texas and son to world champion and Hall of Fame cowboy, Craig Cameron. Cole has spent his life on family ranches in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona and was always a top student, as well as a highly gifted athlete. Cole was a standout 3-sport athlete in High School, earning all-district honors in football, winning a state championship and earning a scholarship to play college football at Texas A&M University. Upon graduating with his bachelors in Agriculture at Texas A&M, Cole decided to pursue graduate school earning a rodeo scholarship and a spot on the Texas A & M rodeo team.  Cole competed two years for the Texas A&M rodeo team and competed twice at the College National Finals in Casper, Wyoming.

After finishing his college rodeo career, Cole continued to follow his rodeo dream on the pro circuit. In 2011, he won the Cowboys Professional Rodeo Association in Steer Wrestling. Cole, who is now a highly competitive team roper, and continues to work and learn with many of the top horse trainers competing in multiple disciplines including, cutting, team roping, and reined cow horse.

Next year proves to be even busier as Cole prepares to compete for the 2022 RTTH World Championship title of colt starting in Lexington, Kentucky.

Cole, who was raised in a true colt starting atmosphere, is truly the gold standard when it comes to this discipline. Cole lives, breathes, and practices the art of colt starting that has been passed down the Cameron family from father to son, working many training horses each and every day. Capturing the essence of his training philosophy, Cole says, “From good beginnings, good things tend to come naturally.”

Episode 10: Interview with Anna Blake

Episode 10: Interview with Anna Blake

August 30, 2021

It was a lot of fun (and thought-provoking!) to visit with Anna, after having met her at Equidays here in New Zealand in '18. She has such a way with horses and words! 

Anna Blake is a horse advocate, trainer, international clinician, and award-winning author of six books. Anna believes affirmative training principles build a Relaxed & Forward foundation that crosses over all riding disciplines in the same way that the understanding of Calming Signals benefits all equine communication. We hold a profound concern for the horse’s mental and physical welfare.
“It’s serious training but I keep a light heart because horses like us that way.” At home at Infinity Farm, on the windy treeless prairie of Colorado, with a multi-species herd of horses, llamas, goats, dogs, and our moral compass, Edgar Rice Burro.

Episode 7: Interview with Colton Woods

Episode 7: Interview with Colton Woods

July 20, 2021

It is an honor to have caught up with Colton Woods recently! We haven't met in person yet, but have enjoyed getting to know one another through social media and visiting on one another's podcasts. It is always enjoyable to visit with a like-minded student of the horse!

Colton is an evolving horseman who is dedicated to teaching his students a progressive horsemanship approach built on practical application and understanding of the horse on a mental, physical, emotional and spiritual level. Colton has a deep passion for bringing together the similarities and uniqueness, which both Dressage and the Vaquero Bridle Horse traditions have to offer. He is continually pushing himself personally and professionally to develop his own understandings, insights, and skill sets to help better serve the horses and humans that he is blessed to work with. 

To Colton, horsemanship is not just a way to train a horse, but it is everything we do with our horses and in our own lives. Colton and his wife, Maredith, own and operate Colton Woods Horsemanship based in Lexington, Kentucky. They serve the their clients through their Online Video Library, the Heart of Horsemanship Podcast, teaching horse and human development clinics, training horses and teaching lessons.

Episode 6: Ben Longwell - The Direct Feel

Episode 6: Ben Longwell - The Direct Feel

July 9, 2021

In this episode, I clarify the use and purpose of tools such as a rope halter, snaffle bit, or hackamore as a direct feel (as opposed to indirect feel or body language). Humans tend to use their hands and tools too much and can very easily be unclear to their horse regarding the simple meaning behind these tools. Combined with the previous episode, these principles will really help you clarify your communication with horses!

Episode 5: Ben Longwell - Body Language

June 25, 2021

In this episode I cover some of the details of 'body language' when it comes to horses. This catch phrase in the horsemanship world is often misunderstood or poorly defined. What does it actually look like and how can we become more effective in our communication?
