Life In The Saddle

Episode 19: Interview with Jeremiah Watt - part 1

February 26, 2022

**This episode is broken up into 2 parts...this is part 1**

We got acquainted with Jeremiah when we used to import fine using gear and tack from the US into New Zealand. It was a privilege to be able to provide quality snaffle bits to my students and others. I had the privilege of catching up with Jeremiah late last year and we got so carried away with the conversation we had to edit the interview into 2 parts!
