Welcome back to another episode ofThe Ride! We’re changing the way we do things around here. As you listen to this week’s episode, you’ll notice better sound quality, and a change in our interview format as Nichole Chirico takes on sole hosting duties going forward. 


This week Nichole sits down to talk with rider fitness and nutrition expert Kelly Altschwager. After years in the performance horse world, Kelly created Western Workouts after she noticed a common recurring trend: the majority of horse owners and competitors were investing incredible amounts of time and money on their horses’ training, feed, and tack, and wellbeing, but they weren’t doing the same for themselves. In this episode, Nichole and Kelly talk about ways you can stay fit for your ride, even during the winter months, and the importance of fueling your body for performance horse competitions and all-day trail riding.
