#104 12-23-2012 The Joy of Jumping

Welcome to the last new episode of hoofbeats for our 2012 season.  Over the next two weeks, we will be rebroadcasting our programs with the holiday flavour.

In today's show, we will meet Maddy and be in detailed discussion with another current U of G student who is also very active and avid in the equestrian community.  From growing up with horses in the backyard, to a long-standing show jumping career with the guidance of Mike Grinyer to a horse partner today at eventer Gary Roque's... we will hear all about another local equine enthusiat's unique experience.  We've asked her if she wanted to play us any musical tracks in particular.  Can't wait to hear back!

We'v heard from Rick Lamb at horse radio on the internet that he might use our interviews with Michele Mueler on his internet site.  We're also excited to hear that The Grand and Erin Radio are considering broadcasting half hour episodes of hoofbeats in 2013.  For future shows, We've also asked our hayfield reporter and volunteers at CivL radio in BC for contributions.  Cross your fingers for us!
It is also important to ask once more for pledges or dontations to CFRU on hoofbeats behalf, we have are still trying to raise about $65 to meet our fundraising goal.  Just send a note to or and we will get you details!
