Emily and Sarah Harris of Sisters Horsing Around
Emily and Sarah Harris are the sister duo of “Sisters Horsing Around,” which includes their YouTube channel, website, and social media accounts (see below). Sisters Horsing Around is a fun, engaging, informative and educational resource for horse information. As multi-discipline riders, Emily and Sarah have had a variety of experiences, and they are passionate about sharing the joys of horses. They call themselves the “Equestrian Guides” and want to help non-equestrians explore the amazing world of horses. For those that are equestrians, they want to help broaden their interests in different disciplines. They do this by creating content that can be enjoyed and understood by anyone. They also endeavor to bridge the gap between those outside the horse world and those in the horse world and bring equestrian sports into the limelight in an interesting and understandable way.

Colton Woods of Colton Woods Horsemanship
Colton Woods is a husband, horseman and entrepreneur dedicated to helping others develop themselves, their horses and businesses to be the best they can be. Horsemanship to him is not just a way to train a horse—it is everything we do with our horses and in our own lives. He grew up in a family of international business, and even lived in China for two years, and brings a whole new perspective and way of building horse training businesses to the horse world. Through his Professional Horseman’s School, his Business Mentorship for Horse Trainers, podcast The Heart of Horsemanship, teaching clinics and at expos as well as training select horses for clients, Colton is truly changing lives in the horse industry. He knows it is time we have the tough conversations, we challenge industry traditions and he lives it out.
