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 life long 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, travelling 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.
Jody was born into a horse family in Northern New Jersey. Her family continues to be very successful in horse training and riding instruction. Jody’s primary role in the industry has been as an instructor of all ages and experience levels. Many of Jody’s riders have found national success in the show arena and have gone on to start their own programs. Jody acts as a mentor and is a friend long after the lessons are over.
Jody has a teaching degree and taught special education in the public school system for 16 years. Her patience and enthusiasm made her a favorite amongst her students.
Recently, Jody has relocated to Florida and with Joe Alberti, from Chestnuthill Arabians, has started the Ocala Stirrups riding program. The program has shown early success through outreach programs and lessons. Her teaching background makes this experience even more fulfilling.
Jody has become The Horse Talk Show co-host. This weekly, live show is the only one of its kind. Covering all the major breeds and events is an exciting way to get to know the Ocala Equine Community.
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 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 new 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
