    Good Morning, Megan here, I live in central Florida and have four horses which most of the training I cover myself. Just wanted to say that HRN is a fantastic station. I’m working right now and I have a set of headphones that I wear almost nonstop when I’m at my desk. I’ll listen to radios shows, music, and playlist, whatever gets me through the day. Well this morning I decided I wanted to listen to something with horses, was kind of thinking live horse racing announcements as I know those exist. I typed in horse radios and the first thing to pop up was Horse radio network. I never knew there was such a thing and so many choices of radio shows too. I looked around the site and picked the western show to start on, episode 80 to be exact and I love it. Turns out I recently bought a series called the world of horses and one of the first episode was the rodeo horse (bucking horse). Episode 80 took what I learned on that show even further and covered all the live stock, I figured there was a lot of work but I didn’t know it took weeks from start to finish like that for a single rodeo. I’ve just went to the Florida Cattlemen’s Rodeo a couple months ago which is a Ranch team style rodeo and loved it. It’s different than your normal rodeo which I love to watch, bucking broncs are my favorite, but I have to say, if you haven’t seen wild cow milking you should, it’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen and I tell you, those girls are meaner than any bull I’ve ever seen. Well keep the shows coming cause you can bet I’m gonna be a regular from now on.

    I can’t wait to listen to more of your shows, thanks for the great work from Megan, Jenny(standardbred), Diablo “D” (thoroughbred), Twister (Paint), and Jigsaw (mystery).
