THE FARM- Interview with Tracy Porter & Shirley May of Milton, WI
Welcome to The Farm Interview with Shirley May & Tracy Porter Endurance Horse Podcast  Hosted by Christina Hyke Created March 19th, 2020 I know it is a challenging Spring for those in North America, and for all of us across the world. Though I'd like to wish you all a Happy Spring,   it is my hope that we can brighten your first day of spring! So the best laid plans of mice & men…… Episode 36 of Endurance Horse Podcast was to be on Ride Management, though the recent world health concerns put a damper on my plans to travel around getting several interviews with Ride Managers.   I was able to do a few interviews, and just so happened to interview a few friends before the pandemic restricted all the movements and gatherings.   In Episode 36 we will hear from two great horsewomen, mother and daughter, Shirley May and Tracy Porter.   We chat about how both of them got into horses, a bit about horse training and yes a little about endurance.  Shirley and Tracy operate a 120 acre boarding facility in Milton, Wisconsin   It is my hope that you enjoy this episode getting to know this midwest horse trainer and her mother.  And I hope it helps to take your mind away from current events, even if only for a few minutes.  Shirley May Wisconsin, USA The Farm   Tracy Porter Wisconsin, USA Clinician & Horse Training   John Lyons Lyons Legacy    Christina Hyke Wisconsin, USA          Creator of Endurance Horse Podcast         Happy Spring 2020!   To share your story on Endurance Horse Podcast, email an audio file to: endurancehorsepodcast@gmail.com WARHORSE  Endurance Horse Podcast  Join the Group on Facebook      Christina Hyke, creator of Endurance Horse Podcast, lives in southern Wisconsin with her sweet husband, Jim.   Chris is an equine & pet photographer, and Ride Manager of WARHORSE Endurance.  She has always loved the trails and spent every moment she could riding since before she could walk.   It was the love of covering miles through beautiful territory on good horses that inspired her to create a podcast about it to share stories with other riders from around the world.  Cheers & Happy Trails! www.christinahyke.com

LONG FEATHER Racing - Also Milwaukee Art Museum & Veterans Light Up the Arts
Welcome to the Long Feather Racing episode of Endurance Horse Podcast with The Milwaukee Art Museum & Veterans Light Up the Arts   Created February 27, 2020 Welcome to episode 35  of Endurance Horse Podcast!        This topic may seem to have little to do with endurance riding, we distance riders are often talking about riding the same horse over many miles,  in this episode we talk to a father who manages a racing team that is comprised of his family members.  Long Feather Racing Team  stands tall among the many skilled teams who participate in Indian Relay Racing.     One rider, 3 horses and many team members comprise the team.  Riders must mount bareback on their own power and relay onto three horses to win this race.  Though swapping horses, high speeds and bareback seem to have little to do with endurance,  I reached out to Richard Long Feather of Standing Rock Reservation to connect with him and listen in as  shares his love of Indian Relay Racing.       It is funny how things come together if you track them backwards.  As you may know, I had the idea for WARHORSE Endurance ride, that then also led me to loan an idea and name for a second ride to Laura  to change the name and theme of her ride.  I loaned her the name I had for another ride, Spirit Horse.  Laura then spoke to people who gave her the idea to fund raise for an equine program at Rosebud Reservation- which brought me to purchasing the DVD, HORSE NATION, which helped me to find out about the Mankato ride, and the Wounded Knee ride, and then apparently FB suggested Long Feather Racing-  and so I found Richard’s family & now Richard is on Endurance Horse Podcast.    Richard’s family works as a team traveling during the racing season covering many miles with typically six horses to care for.  This sounded very familiar to the ride camp we all travel around to.  I wanted to make a connection with Endurance Horse Podcast and this amazing family.  As you can see, what started out as a short interview turned into much more as I found myself enjoying this man’s love for his horses and his home.  I hope you all can forgive me as I learn the more technical side of recording.  I think that we had a bad phone connection, though I hope you can listen long enough to see what a good horse connection we made.  Sit back, hold on and enjoy the ride!   Click here to see a preview of We are a Horse Nation on YouTube To find We are a Horse Nation you can search on Amazon or click here   Christina Hyke Cheers to 2020!   Richard & Jace Long Feather, Standing Rock Reservation, ND Wiyanka Hanska-Long Feather Racing on Facebook   Horse Nations Indian Relay Racing Council Racing Photo Credit: A by A Photography Washington, USA on Facebook   To learn more about Indian Relay Racing:  Relay Horse Magazine Horse Nations Indian Relay Council Horse Nations Indian Relay Council- on Facebook   Navajo Code Talker -Thomas Begay   Thomas Begay singing in Navajo the Marine Hymn   Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce   Veterans Light Up the Arts   Milwaukee Art Museum   Trickster Art Gallery Cultural Center Distance Riding Association of Wisconsin    Christina ‘Send me files’ Hyke Wisconsin, USA          Creator of Endurance Horse Podcast  WARHORSE  Endurance Horse Podcast  Join the Group on Facebook    Christina Hyke, creator of Endurance Horse Podcast, lives in southern Wisconsin with her sweet husband, Jim.   Chris is an equine & pet photographer, and Ride Manager of WARHORSE Endurance.  She has always loved the trails and spent every moment she could riding since before she could walk.   It was the love of covering miles through beautiful territory on good horses that inspired her to create a podcast about it to share stories with other riders from around the world.     Cheers & Happy Trails! www.christinahyke.com

Rider Health - Part One
Welcome to Part 1 of 2  Focused on Rider Health Endurance Horse Podcast    Created February 3, 2020 Welcome to episode 32  of Endurance Horse Podcast!      Rider health is the topic today & it has been a popular one, not surprising, all of us are riders & all have health to deal with.   When it comes to rider health we are  referring to an encompassing topic.  Today we are chatting about everything from overcoming injures, dealing with illnesses,  how horses are therapist and yes, some about riders fitness & emotional health.   Guess what?  SO many files were sent in I couldn't possibly fit them all into one episode, and believe it or not I am about to leave here in an hour to go do a second interview on this topic!   Honestly I was hesitant to cover this topic, as I know some of it can be hard to hear.  It maybe easier to trot through a ride camp world where we all just smile and wave at each other- and not be the tiniest bit aware of what could be going on in the body of the other rider--- though think about how much we pay attention to the health of the rider's horse.   I hope this episode does a lot to remind us all that all riders have more to contend with than the weather, the horse and the trail.     Christina Hyke Cheers to the first episode of 2020!   Jenna Corsiatto North Dakota, USA Brain Injury Association   Kim Fosler Illinois, USA Keep ‘em Covered Rump Rugs   Christina Hyke Wisconsin, USA WARHORSE Endurance  Endurance Horse Podcast Christina Hyke Photography       Mandy Blankenship Kentucky, USA Mandy Lawson Art Artful Touch Equine Massage   Jen Moore Wisconsin, USA Standardbred Adoption      Jenny Chandler Waikato, New Zealand Tom Quilty Gold Cup   Courtney Krueger Tennesee, USA Gallop on the Greenway Ride & Tie Lindy Griffith Florida, USA Touched by a Horse   Charlie, Sandy's horse who helped heal her heart.
