Talk about BEHIND THE SCENES! This episode is great if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to actually ride and train horses full time.
Krystal Grad, full time futurity horse trainer, is living every horse girls dream but as with anything, there are always challenges and obstacles. Krystal has a great perspective on the reality of riding full time. In this episode she talks about riding client horses, hauling to competition, training techniques and about her horses.
Favourite quote of the episode, “I ask all my new clients, ‘Do you like gambling?’ and if they don’t say no I’m like, ‘We may have a problem here’ Ha ha we loved the candid conversation about how Krystal deals with budgeting for competitions and those hard conversations.
We appreciated this conversation so much and what a treat to talk to someone who’s walking the walk!
