Have you witnessed a horse having an over-the-top emotional meltdown—or worse, was it your horse? Julie Goodnight’s latest podcast release, Meltdowns: Bringing Your Horse Back from the Brink, is out now (JulieGoodnight.com/Podcast).
This episode of Goodnight’s monthly podcast, Ride On with Julie Goodnight, talks about why horses can escalate to uncontrollable meltdowns, and what horse owners can do about it.
“When a horse is overwhelmed emotionally and becomes reactive, it’s behavior will escalate unless we take active measures to retrieve the horse from the downward spiral,” says Goodnight.
Listeners are entertained by Goodnight’s anecdotes, and motivated by topics like building confidence, setting goals, and developing leadership. Ride On with Julie Goodnight tackles all kinds of horse training challenges horse owners face every day.

“There are so many great clinicians out there, but communicating ideas and techniques in this format takes someone special,” says podcast listener, Cindy, from Illinois in her review on Apple Podcasts. “I’ve been around horses for a long time, yet in every podcast I learn something new, offered in a clear and articulate way. Thank you for offering your expertise.”
