American show jumper Karl Cook has opinions.

And he has a lot of them.

On things like fashion (there’s power to a great suit) and the Hollywood machine (a nice place to visit). On the place for politics (everywhere) and his personal political stance (informed moderate). On striving to do better for horses in ongoing and tangible ways. Plus, the one thing he “couldn’t give two flying hoots” about.

In Episode 7 of Under the Saddle with Adam Cromarty, show jumping’s modern day renaissance man dives deep with our favorite smooth talking Scot on all of the above.

Strap in for 35 minutes of stimulating conversation!
