Welcome everyone, a little shopkeeping before we start. If you haven’t already seen it on socials, we now have a merch store, two in fact, one for the US and one for Canada, to make things easier on both sides of the border. I’ll leave it to the international folks to decide which one’s easier for them.

The links to both stores are on all the socials and they will be in the show notes of this episode.  Also, on the supporting the podcast front, I must send a shout-out to Gary Martin and Nick Harvey. Thank you both for supporting the show by buying a virtual coffee.

So a while back when I was introducing the episode with Mercy and Ben Bishop. I had mentioned that quite a few people have reached out to me requesting interviews with folks who are at the beginning of their careers, and this particular gentleman you’re about to hear fits that bill perfectly. The thing is, though, whether you’re at the start of your career or partway through it, I don’t think you can help but be inspired by this gentleman’s stories.

When I first met him at the pre-cert course at Heartland in October, a couple of years back, he walked up to me, shook my hand, and he said, I know you’re nervous, but you don’t have to worry. Yes, I will be a guest on your podcast.  As you will hear, at that time, he was able to count how many horses he had done, literally how many shoes he had nailed when he showed up at this course. It’s a reoccurring theme, prepared or not, Riley will jump in head first at any opportunity to learn something new.  I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
