Have Horse Will Travel podcast (S3E8): Call the vet!



Just like any pet (or a car, or your own self), horses need routine care to keep them in top physical health. For an adventure horse like Apollo, though, taking care of his veterinary needs - whether routine or emergency - while traveling can get a bit tricky.  

In this episode, Meredith and Apollo discuss the basics of horse health care and the special needs of an adventure horse.

Have Horse Will Travel podcast (S3E3): What Hollywood got wrong

Hollywood loves a horse (and so do I, obvs). Is there anything more majestic than a horse running across the big screen? But in film after film, there are so many things that annoy any horseperson watching. Here are a few of my pet peeves (get it? because horses are ... nevermind). Plus, a scene from trail riding with Apollo, meet friend of the show Rex, and an update on Meredith and Apollo's plans to continue their cross-country journey.

Have Horse Will Travel podcast (S3E1): But wait, there’s more!

 


Well, that was a strange year, wasn’t it? Things got a little crazy in my life, as they probably did for you too… but the good news is, it’s 2021 and the podcast is BACK! Woohoo! This episode is a not-so-brief update on what Apollo and I (well, mostly just I) have been doing for the last few months while not recording.

Apologies for the sound quality. Hang in there, it gets better about halfway through the episode.

About our Guest: Cathleen Leonard

I travel on horseback. It became a dream from the moment I first sat on a horse. In 2017 I rode 1000 miles from Scotland to Cornwall alone with one of my rescued horses. In 2018 I rode with my partner, Vlad, from Cornwall to Wales and all around Ireland on my other two rescued horses and my violin. Half way round we picked up a one-eyed mule near Limerick. I've written two books, one for each journey. We're currently stuck in Portugal with all our equines. We were due to set off in March to ride 3,000 miles across Europe to Romania but Spain went into lockdown and closed the borders the day we were due to set off. It's now too hot to travel on horseback and grass and water are scarce so we're staying in Portugal until the spring when we'll try to set off again.
