Bringing the Equestrian Community Together


Stable Connections the Podcast keeps the focus on what we have in common as individuals, as well as a community through

values, beliefs, and experiences in each episode.

Our Story

Stable Connections offers a space for personal perspective and creates room for both the speaker and listener to share, learn, and process together. Some of the guests interviewed are professionals within the industry, while others are not.  


At the end of each conversation, it's not uncommon to feel surprised and humbled by how much can be learned by simply listening and we can be reminded that all of us are doing the best we can with the cards we are dealt.


What Makes Stable Connections Different?

Stable Connections host Shonna Berk uses her unique background within the horse world to create comfort and connection with each of her guests.  All interviews are recorded in person, offering the opportunity for true connection.  Though all episodes are pre-recorded and edited for listener enjoyment, each episode feels as though you are in the room and part of the conversation.


Episodes are approximately one hour, and the interviewee steers the conversation. The conversations are free-flowing and organic, with just one pre-planned question: “What is something within the community you’d like to see evolve or change, and how can you help with this change if you’re not already?” The question is asked with the intent to create curiosity for the listener and influence positive change within the community.
