Join host Patricia Milligan of Fox Lea Farm Mini Equine Rescue, an organization dedicated to helping the littlest horses find their way home, as we dive into the world of our smallest equine friends. You'll also hear from EQUUS Film & Arts Fest Director Lisa Diersen and Producer Julianne Neal from time to time with tidbits and features from the equine media scene. Tiny Horse Talk is a collaboration between Fox Lea Farm Mini Equine Rescue, the EQUUS Film & Arts Fest and JA Media Productions. Fox Lea Farm began as a privately owned home with acreage in Barnesville, Md., upon which a beautiful barn, indoor and ring was built. As the owners brought their horses from nearby boarding barns to their new home, they had a few empty stalls. Long-time equestrian Patricia Milligan, joined by her originally non-horsey but willing to learn husband, Michael Fox, pondered what to do about the empty stalls. As all horse people know, empty stalls never remain empty for long. Having many rescue dogs over the years, Patricia was interested in dabbling in horse rescue. A chain of chatty horse friends with a variety of connections eventually let her to the Eastern Shore and a mini horse rescue in need of foster homes. Eventually those stalls became homes for a host of minis and Patricia became a champion for these littlest equines who so often found themselves in dire situations without options. Lisa Diersen is a champion for all things equine and as an avid equestrian has spent her life in the company of horses. Riding since she could sit in a saddle, Diersen has a great appreciation for all types of equestrian disciplines. She is the Founder and Director of the EQUUS Film & Arts Fest, empowering storytellers to showcase the rich history and diverse tapestry of horses in human culture through equestrian content, film, art and literature. The EQUUS Film & Arts Fest is the premiere film festival oriented around equestrian-themed content from all over the world. Screening feature films, documentaries, shorts, music videos, commercials, training educational materials, art and literary, covering all equestrian disciplines, the festival created a home for the storytellers of the horse world. Now branching into the social media and podcast venues, Lisa continues to support all things equine. Every horse has a story, its our mission at the EQUUS Film & Arts Fest to share those stories, through film, art and literature. Julianne Neal is the owner of JA Media Connections, LLC and the Coordinator of Visual and Performing Arts for The Fairfield County School District. She and partner Bruce Anderson provide equine services through The Marley Project, Inc, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) with an equine education-focused mission. The organization connects horses with individuals, educational groups, law enforcement officers and veterans, as well as with children through arts and film. In her spare time, Julianne operates Thornfield LLC, a boarding and training facility located in South Carolina where she combines her love of all things equine by riding her dressage horse, Winston. Julianne produced and directed the film, "A Pony and His Boy," a collaboration with Lisa detailing the story of Berry, a senior rescue pony, and Josh, a young man with Down Syndrome whose connection with the pony has been life-changing for Josh and all who love him.

  • Conversations with Hannah Catalino and Lisanne Fear

    Nov 1 2021

    Welcome to Tiny Horse Talk, featuring conversations about ponies and miniature horses. You’ll find information and education in each episode, along with a little dash of fun!

    Join host Patricia Milligan of Fox Lea Farm Mini Equine Rescue, an organization dedicated to helping the littlest horses find their way home, as we dive into the world of our smallest equine friends. You'll also hear from EQUUS Film & Arts Fest Director Lisa Diersen and Producer Julianne Neal from time to time with tidbits and features from the equine media scene.

    In today's episode, Patricia sits down for a chat with Hannah Catalino and Lisanne Fear to learn more about the Mustang Discovery Ride.  Take two young women with a passion for horses, both looking for a grand adventure, add four American Mustangs and a curious wild-born molly Mulestang, and you have the ingredients for the “Mustang Discovery Ride.” Presented by the Mustang Heritage Foundation, the Mustang Discovery Ride is a journey across the United States on the American Discovery Trail.  Hannah and Lisanne will cover 12 states in 12 months, coast to coast from Delaware to California, riding American Mustangs with the assistance of a support crew. Both riders are trainers who have taken part in the Mustang Heritage Foundation Trainer Incentive Program (TIP). Hannah travels the world as a Mustang Ambassador and trainer presenting “Wild Horse Workshops” & Liberty Training Clinics. The two women rode out from Delaware’s historic Cape Henlopen State Park on September 28, 2021, and will continue their adventures through Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and California.

    Special thanks to the sponsor of today's episode, Cavallo. A good hoof boot is made of a strong upper material that is flexible and strong. It should comfortably cover the horse’s hoof and fasten easily. It is securely connected to a hard wearing sole that provides support and protection for the  barefoot horse to be ridden over and through any terrain at any speed. A good hoof boot should be simple and quick to put on. This should be an easy procedure. It should stay on through all terrain and it should only come off when YOU want to take it off, not fall off while you are on a ride. Cavallo Boots allow you to ride through any terrain at any speed. You do not need a special trim or hoof shape. You do not require special tools, equipment or replaceable parts.
