We did it! After months of build up and planning, we have officially launched the Canada Horse Podcast and it feels great!!
Canada Horse Podcast is brought to you by Informed Equestrian and is created with all equestrians in mind. We strive to enhance the lives of horse owners by facilitating conversations that make people want to talk and leaves our listeners feeling both informed and entertained!
We are spotlighting the Canadian horse industry and diving into all that it has to offer while on a mission to help bridge the knowledge gap for horse owners by offering them a place to go where they are presented with the WHYs behind the decisions we make for our horses, from their tack, to their trainers, to their vet care and everything in between.
Our listeners are encouraged to use the information offered on the Canada Horse Podcast to make informed choices that suit their individual needs. We believe in education over judgement and informed choices over following the crowd.

The main goal is to have your horse with you the whole time you are in there (the show pen), no matter what the score is.-Matt Hudson, HR Prospects
🔸We learned about Matt’s journey from growing up in a small NB community, to living in Quebec as a teenager, working in a professional program in Texas, becoming the head trainer at a facility in Italy and then eventually making his way back to Canada and what he’s up to now.
🔸Q&A with Matt about lessons learned, competition plans, what he sees in special young horses, suggestions for aspiring professionals and advice for non pros.
