CHA CEO Christy Landwehr and Glenn the Geek will interview CHA Clinician Julie Goodnight, Harness Horse Youth Foundation Executive Director Ellen Taylor, and Lisa Diersen, founder of the EQUUS Film Festival. Each speaker will showcase what they will be presenting at the conference. It’s a great way to get a preview before this much-anticipated event. In addition, Troxel Helmets, one of CHA’s partners, will sponsor the episode. The show will air August 20, 2019, at 10 a.m. Eastern Time and will also be available via digital download at https://cha.horse/education#horse-radio-show.
During the conference, Goodnight will present “How to Bring Out the Best in Your Horses and Riders” on Friday, October 25, at 9 a.m. and “Collection: Promoting Self-Carriage” on Friday at noon. Goodnight is best known as producer and host of the popular TV show, “Horse Master,” which aired weekly on RFD-TV for 11 years. Her clear and humorous teaching style, enlightening insights on horses, and her live horse-training demonstrations inspire and educate horse owners all over the world. Goodnight’s techniques are grounded in natural horsemanship, classical riding, and a deep understanding of horse behavior. She travels the globe teaching riders, training horses, and entertaining audiences at major horse events. She also offers online education, training videos, tack, and training tools at JulieGoodnight.com.
Taylor will be present “Lines, Not Reins—A Primer on Harness, Driving, and Racing” on Saturday, October 26, at 1:30 p.m. Taylor’s roots are deeply planted in Standardbreds and harness racing with a grandfather and both parents having held trainers’ and drivers’ licenses. Growing up, she was heavily involved in the family training and breeding operation, where she served as caretaker and night watchman and assisted with administrative responsibilities. In addition, Taylor has been involved with the charitable Harness Horse Youth Foundation since she was 16 and has served as executive director for the past 29 years.
Diersen will represent the EQUUS Film Festival on Wednesday night, October 23, starting at 7 p.m. for “A Night at the Movies” during which three movies will be shown for attendees. Diersen founded the EQUUS Film Festival as the first film festival oriented around equestrian-themed content from all over the world. She was also the producer and a writer on one of the films being shown, “A Pony and His Boy: The Story of Berry & Josh.” She is an lifelong equestrian who has ridden since she could sit in a saddle and who appreciates all types of equestrian disciplines. As founder and director of the festival, her mission is to show the world how horses can bring everyone together regardless of race, age, gender, abilities, or disabilities. She is passionate about the education and enlightenment of others to the wonderful world of horses and everything they can do to enrich our lives.
