Rick Lamb of The Horse Show
On today’s show, Rick Lamb, host of The Horse Show radio and TV programs stops by and we chat about his life with horses. Rick Lamb is an example of someone loving horses and working to make a life out of it. I believe one of the reasons Rick Lamb is so popular is because he is so very easy to relate to. There is a little bit of him in all of us. He had a boyhood fascination with horses and kept following it until he found a place in the horse world. He took his experiences in the recording studio and blended them with his knowledge of horses and his desire to teach. Rick developed his radio show and emceed many horse expos and demonstrations. He found good people, like Dr. Robert Miller, to co-write a book with, then wrote his own. He developed a TV show on the RFD network and it is no surprise it quickly grew in popularity. And, Rick Lamb continues to grow by working on a doctorate on educational technology so he can keep on teaching people what he has learned about horses.
Rick tells us a little about his journey and some of the key moments in his life. We hear how Rick got his first horse and a little about the trials he had getting them home to his ranch in Arizona. We also get to hear about Rick’s experience interviewing and hosting numerous shows with some of the biggest names in natural horsemanship. Rick touches a little on his relationships with Clinton Anderson, Dr. Robert Miller, Pat Parelli and John Lyons and how they all had an impact on his life and career.
One of the most interesting topics, (maybe it is because I would love to raise a foal someday), is imprint training that Rick and Dr. Miller talk about in the book A Revolution in Horsemanship. Rick tells us how if the training isn’t followed, the results could leave you with a problem horse. But, if done well you get a much more confident horse.
Talking with Rick was just so comfortable. You know I’ve only been doing this a little while. I make no bones about my interviewing skills. I know I don’t have “the pipes” to really be doing a podcast. Rick recorded his side of the conversation at his home studio and sent me his side of the file to mix together. He was very patient and generous with his time and was open to any questions I wanted to ask.
His TV show can be found on RFD-TV. Check out their website for details.
