1:38:15Our guest for this episode is Jamie Seccombe, Jamie has a long list of achievements in the sport of cutting and is one of the younger trainers going around, his story like most is very unique. I have known Jamie for quite some time, but I have never really spent any time getting know Jamie, So I learnt a lot from this episode and without giving too many spoiler alerts away, there where a couple of significant moments that stood out for me. Firstly Jamie was never going to be a horse trainer and secondly he has a great balance between running a business and a family as well as having a great client relationships!
4CYTES Series EP 4 Mark Buttsworth
1:41:47Our guest for this episode is none other then Mark Buttsworth! Buttsy is another great 4Cyte trainer, rider and competitor that I'm privilege to call my friend and mentor. As you will hear I was very nervous recording this interview, as I have so much respect for Mark, I put a lot of pressure on myself to do justice to this episode. It was also hard for Buttsy as he is very humble and doesn’t like talking about himself at the best of times, little own on a recorded podcast. Mark is one of the most accomplished riders in this country of all time. He has earned well over a million dollars from both cutting and campdrafting. He is also having a real purple patch at the moment, winning most things he goes in and we will find out why, so stay tuned!

A few other industry greats get a mention as these two horseman sit down and tell tales of the years gone by.

We're introduced to Swampy - a Double Dan icon, and get inside info on what it's like to fly with horses. But that's not all.

Finally in New Zealand it's moments away from Equidays and the Dans are roaming the countryside trying to find horses to use in their show. Time is running out....and they don't have an act without horses! Steers spills the beans on a few renowned horsemen getting loose, but also admits being driven home from NZs equestrian party of the year by his mum. Before the boys wrap up 2011 they'll be on the run from the police across the Nullabor with a stowaway - of course.
