If you’d like to support the podcast and all the work that I do then you can! Just head on over to patreon.com/comealongfortheridepodcast and sign up. From as little as a cup of coffee a month, you can help me keep this podcast going. There are many tiers that you can choose from and if everyone who listens gave only $5 per month, it would make a massive positive difference to me.


There is a tier in there for a small business subscription just like the one Peter Papp took up from Peter and the Herd, this is the one where your business gets a mention each week on the podcast. Peter works with equine behaviour and trauma recovery. Equine communication. Human and horse relationship building. Peter has had communication with my mare Gypsy, who is the mare with me in the podcast picture and he was spot on about everything so I can highly recommend his work personally. Click here to connect with Peter and the Herd.

One of our small business subscribers for the podcast is the HeartHorse Box. HeartHorse was created by friends Tista and Charlotte who found a beautiful spot to place themselves in the horse world. They have created a safe online community environment outside the noisy world of social media where you can subscribe and dive in and speak openly with heart-minded conscious horse people of all disciplines and breeds. This includes live seminars and classes from equine experts from all areas of the equestrian world. They also have the beautiful HeartHorse Box Subscription, I do love this one as it is centred around you, the conscious horse person receiving nourishing gifts for you as HeartHorse understand that you are already taking amazing care of your horse and want to make sure you are doing the same for yourself. I am thrilled to let you know that if you go to hearthorse.us and use the code EDENRIVER you will receive a 25% discount on your first month of the HeartHorse Community Membership. You may also like to check out their HeartHorse podcast it’s another great free resource from the HeartHorse team. You may even find the episode where I was a guest on their podcast talking about my life with horses and how this podcast and the conscious horse movement came about.


In this episode I speak with Caroline Hegarty who created a community called Equitopia.


Caroline felt disempowered as a horse owner as the experts she has in farriers and trainers of her horses were telling her they knew best. Even when she was able to be brave and speak up they still shut her down. So being the amazing woman she is, Caroline decided to do something about it and created an online community where you as a horse owner can educate yourself, find support and also find great expert in their fields who are collaborative and open and always put the horse first.
I love what Caroline has created and she will continue to grow what she has done and is truly helping horses all over the world to have a better life by empowering the owners like you and me.

Equitopia has the course by Dr Sue Dyson as well, the Ridden Horse Ethogram that I spoke with Sue about a couple of episodes ago. So there is definitely great information and she has chosen her experts very well.
