Heels Down Magazine presents the Heels Down Happy Hour podcast. There’s a whole lot of stuff happening in the horse world, and someone’s got to keep you up to date. Who’s winning what? What weird rules are you probably going to violate at your next horse show? What does your favorite rider really think about white breeches? Don’t worry, that’s what we’re here for. Grab a drink. Welcome to Happy Hour.
One host has a gallant past. And who is messing with your horses when you’re not looking? This week on Heels Down Happy Hour, what happens when a horse agent is accused of fraud, how to ensure your horses are safe at the show grounds and cool products from RevitaVet. Listen in…
More about our hosts:
Jessica Payne is a 32-year-old international event rider who is rarely seen without her long-haired chihuahua under her arm. She was born in London, Ontario but grew up in Franklin, Tenn. and graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Animal Science. She once lost the tip of her pinky finger clipping her 4* horse, and husband Doug says she can “talk to anyone including a wall….and they will like it!”
Justine Griffin is an award winning 29-year-old journalist who has written about everything from horses to high profile CEOs to her ovaries. (She donated her eggs once.) Two things she loves the most? Whippet puppies and cheese. Justine is a firm believer in unicorns and feminism. So take everything she says with a grain of salt.
Caroline Culbertson is a 27-year-old equestrian journalist who broke her foot “surfing” a mattress down the stairs at age 7. Yes, her parents told her not to. She grew up in the south y’all and graduated from Duke University in North Carolina. She also picked up powerlifting a few months after breaking both bones in her arm, so her judgement is questionable. Hence, she’s an event rider.
