    As always, I enjoy all the Horse Radio network shows. Thanks for another great episode. Made it to Gladstone Sunday in hopes of catching some of the action since it looked like the heavy rains were holding off. Literally got there when the cancelled remaining rides. Totally bummed but understand. It was interesting to hear what Debbie had to say about the conditions and the reasons of the judges to cancel. As an interesting counter point it , it would be great if you could have Jessica Ransehousen on some time. I’ve caught snippets of audio interviews she has given to Nancy Jaffer for Equisearch. Jessica sounds like she would make for an interesting interview, and she certainly did not “mince words” about her displeasure of cancelling the remaining competition at Gladstone.

    I’ve attached the link and hopefully you can hear it:
