If you’ve ever wondered where I get some of the crazy ideas I write about here on Listen To Your Horse…
Or perhaps you’ve watched my non-training videos and wondered what made me approach things that way…?
Then this podcast with Tracy Malone of Come Along For The Ride may just shed some light on those wonderings. Tracy takes me back to where it all began and the unique circumstances that set me up for such a different perspective on horses.
Of course, it didn’t feel different to me, it was just my normal. It wasn’t until I came back to horses in my 40’s that I realized how lucky I was to have been taught by horses for a decade, not humans.

“Boy oh boy, she is next level of consciousness, in my own personal opinion… I know that when someone is talking, and I start to fidget and feel really uncomfortable, that my buttons are getting pushed to a place I’ve been resisting to go. This happened during this interview, Jini pushed my buttons by the end of this podcast – and I mean that in the best way possible. The depth she’s gone to with her own horses made me so uncomfortable, simply because I’m not ready to go there. Yet. There’s so much surrender that’s needed, so I’ll be taking it one step at a time and giving myself a lot of kindness along the way. But it’s an amazing place to think that I can achieve that one day.” – Tracy Malone

Jini, I listened to your podcast a week ago and loved it!!!!
Thanks Rachel! I loved Tracy’s questions and openness – she was so brave 🙂
Enjoyable story to listen to, Jini. Thank you for sharing. I learned some new things to consider.
Something my two beauties clearly let me know after their last teeth floating,(approximately 16 months ago now–the longest I’ve ever let them go) was No more power tools!! No vets in our area will float teeth without them, so at this time, their teeth are being left alone while I continue listening for more info.
Sometimes there are vets who will travel through a wide area – you could contact Spencer Laflure and ask for a referral. And yes, those power tools are insane!!
I finally just got a chance to listen to this, and I am so happy I did! Fantastic chat, and even though I have now known you for over 3 years, and read everything you write pretty much, I am thrilled to have listened to this and I got so much out of it!
I loved hearing you talk about your first horse and how she taught you, not the other way round, and how as an adult, how other people treated horses made no sense. That was so my experience! I just felt sick the first year because everything I felt I wanted to do with horses was exactly the opposite of what others where doing with them.
So much more to say! I have some questions about my domesticated one, Leilani, but I think i’ll post the questions on the Facebook group first.
Thanks again for doing this!
Thanks Vittoria! I’ll be recording another call soon with a yogi equestrienne, so that should be interesting too 🙂
I can’t imagine how awful it must have been, coming to horses as an adult layperson and seeing how ignorantly “horse people” treat these sentient creatures. Ugh.
Good grief woman! MY MIND IS BLOWN!!!!
