-Meet The Team-
Host & Executive Producer
Born in the county of Warwickshire in England. Grew up in Stratford upon Avon, surrounded by ponies at an early age and in the saddle before she could walk. Louisa is a lifelong horse lover! Pony Clubing, Gymkhanas, Fox Hunting, Eventing, and the Hunter/Jumper world were her passions throughout her childhood. Upon moving to Ocala, Florida the Horse Capital of The World in 2001, Louisa purchased her first Tennessee Walker and rode in her first Western Saddle. She fell in love with the trails available to riders in Marion County and the surrounding area and has been enjoying her gaited horse ever since. She has hosted The Horse Talk Show since 2013, traveling to horse races, shows, and events to bring exclusive, behind-the-scenes coverage and interviews of world-class equestrians to her listening audience. Many of her followers, often claim to live vicariously through her equine adventures. Her vast experience includes working in Veterinary Hospitals and owning her own horse-boarding facility. Enjoying anything from the greenway trails to the racetrack and the Grand Prix ring, Louisa delivers equine news and “edutainment” with her British Banter and sometimes even a giggle and a snort. Louisa has no social life, as she works a lot! Louisa lives on a farm with her son, 2 horses, a dog, and a partridge in a pear tree. She is currently the director of equine engagement for the Chamber and Economic Partnership and also a Farm Realtor.
Dancin' Pete Rodda
At a young age, Pete was fascinated with animal training and behavior. While in college, he pursued an animal science degree where he discovered an aptitude for getting along with horses that no one else could handle. His innate abilities allowed him to build rapport with the horses that he worked with. Pete continued his education by learning from and dedicating his time to some of the top horsemen in the US. Pete had now been teaching and training professionally across the country for over 15 years and has created his own training program called Complementary Horsemanship. Pete's style of training is based on psychology and understanding how horses communicate. He enjoys showing his students how the groundwork they do directly relates to the work they do in the saddle. Pete has developed a sequence of exercises called Walk the Line that will increase relaxation, connection, confidence, and communication in both horses and humans. Along with Walk the Line, Pete uses his fun and imaginative personality to enable his students to better understand the nature of the horse.
Director & Editor
Gigi Rosado is a New York transplant from The Bronx who moved to Florida in 2001 and moved to the Ocala area in 2014. She started attending the College of Central in 2015 majoring in Equine Exercise & Physiology (A.S). Gigi didn’t have the privilege of growing up around horses, so this was a big change. Nevertheless, the lack of equine experience didn’t hold her back and she hit the ground running. Gigi was taken under the wings of the CF staff and was taught everything that she needed to know. Through the connections at CF, she was able to get firsthand experience working on farms and gaining technical skills. It was an exciting experience and she enjoyed every minute of it! Taking care of horses has been a great experience that solidified her career choice, to work in the equine industry. Gigi went back to CF & is now a graduate with her second degree, a BAS in Business and Organizational Management with an Equine Studies specialization. She started as an intern at The Horse Talk Show and now is part of the official team. If you have any ideas for the show, feel free to email Gigi at firstname.lastname@example.org

Isaac Brosius was born and raised in Ocala. Homeschooled until 7th grade, Isaac then attended First Assembly Christian School (FACS). At FACS, he learned a lot about web design and development, cyber security, video production, and editing. Before Isaac graduated, he was creating videos and websites for his school and even started his own YouTube channel for fun and to work on his editing and scriptwriting skills. After graduating, he immediately sought a job in his field of knowledge and interest, with a passion for this
type of work. At that point, Isaac joined the team at the Horse Talk Show, despite having little-to-no experience with horses. He learned how to produce a live television show and lots more about editing and quite a bit about horses too! A few months into working for the Horse Talk Show, he obtained his Part 107 Remote Pilot certificate, allowing him to fly drones commercially. Currently, Isaac is working on getting certified in front-end web
development and plans to increase his experience and abilities in this field of work. Isaac is creative and willing to try anything new to help the show be the best it can be.
