Hey! I am Alyssa Barnes, host of the Earn Your Spurs Podcast. Thank you for joining me for the very first episode! I will be releasing a new episode every week featuring amazing individuals within the western space – cowboys, cowgirls, authors, movie producers – if they are involved in cowboy culture and have a great story to share, you will be hearing from them.
Today’s episode features an interview I did with horseman, Van Hargis for the Cowboy Champions Summit that was held this past June. I got a lot of great feedback on this interview, so I wanted to share it with those of you who missed the summit. Van talks about how to make horsemanship simple by “reducing to the ridiculous.”
Van also weighed in on a recent blog post I compiled, Ask the Experts: How to Avoid the Pitfalls of First-Time Horse Ownership, featuring horse-buying advice from top horsemen and women.
Just a reminder, I would still love to get your audio bumpers, bios and stories to play on the podcast. Go to www.speakpipe.com/eyspurs to leave a message that’s 90 seconds or less. If you’d like to leave me a longer recording, email me at [email protected], and I’ll give you instructions on how to do that.
