3. LEARN DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES
If you’re a barrel racer with a deep and burning desire to learn dressage, this is the show for you. Better Horses covers any and all riding disciplines, and they encourage riders to try different styles. Watching Better Horses is a great way to network not only with other riders but other disciplines. If we can help expand the knowledge of these disciplines and bring new people into it, it’s a win-win.
4. NURTURE THE CONNECTION WITH YOUR HORSE
You’ll be able to take your horse experience to a new level by watching Better Horses. Each episode challenges you to dig deeper into the relationship you have with your horse. Better Horses believes that riding and taking care of horses helps to nurture a sense of responsibility, discipline, dedication and understanding. This will lead to a deeper relationship with your horse, which will in turn lead you to become a better rider.
5. FIND THE BEST EQUINE PRODUCTS
Each episode of Better Horses features a number of superior products that will greatly benefit the life of a horseman or horsewoman, and that of the horse they ride. In one segment, Purina Animal Nutrition went over some key tips on feeding a horse correctly. If done incorrectly, the horse can lose weight and energy, won’t keep conditions up and won’t perform well. These are products that Better Horses believes are forward-thinking, and will help equestrians stay on top of their game.
6. COWBOY CHURCH
Faith plays a large role and viewers will see that right away while watching Better Horses. Each episode has a segment with a Pastor. In the segment, the pastor offers up inspirational thoughts and prayers on how to live a richer life. The fellowship is a cowboy church that is filled with people who love rural life and horses. Cowboy churches are those that embrace the cowboy culture. Better Horses has even dedicated an entire episode to Cowboy Churches, where Better Horses visits and introduces viewers to pastors and places of worship.
7. MEET TOP VETS
Better Horses loves nothing more than introducing viewers to equine experts. This includes veterinarians, and that’s something that every equestrian or horse owner can benefit from. Their expertise can help you to better understand the health of your horse, which both you and your horse will appreciate.
8. EXPERIENCE THE GREAT OUTDOORS
We love to trail ride, and viewers can experience them on special episodes of Better Horses. “Enjoying your horse, enjoying the comradery with your friends, and enjoying the scenery – there’s nothing better,” as the show highlights the Flint Hills of Kansas.
9. COWBOY COOKING
There’s a Hearty Grub segment in some episodes of Better Horses, featuring cheftel, Mark Burkdoll, who knows exactly how to cook “the cowboy way”.
