When is it appropriate to speak out on social media? We’ll discuss the pros & potential pitfalls. Also, cannabis is medicine for humans now, and also for horses. Go figure. Ever wonder what it’s like to show in the hustle & bustle of a downtown city? Us too. Thanks for tuning in.
Mattias Tromp is a 23-year-old Grand Prix show jumper who has been riding horses since he was old enough to climb into a saddle. He won team gold twice at Young Riders and then turned pro. He runs Beyaert Farm in North Salem, N.Y., with his sister Emmy. And he placed third this past weekend the American Gold Cup.

More about our hosts:
Sally Spickard is a 32-year-old marketer and journalist from Missouri who now resides in San Diego, California. She is an unashamed Harry Potter nerd and Kansas City Chiefs fan, and she can rarely be found without her long-haired Chihuahua, Cooper (and for this reason, you’ll never find her on a United flight!). While she’s currently horseless, Sally is an event rider who hopes to one day ride like Michael Jung. Alternatively, she’d just settle for learning how to sit the trot without looking like a sack of potatoes!
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 30-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.
