    Default This kind of training/relationship just blows me away

    I can't imagine the amount of hours that goes into something like this. It's amazing to watch. I once taught a horse to open a mailbox and was so proud....it took me a few days and then she forgot the next time we tried!

    I am such a sap! I get so teary when I see this kind of communication and partnership. And I feel so lucky to have been able to spend so much of my life with these wonderful animals.

    We, horse/animal people have such a special bond with the four legged! I sometimes feel sorry for people that have not experienced what we get to experience with our animals.

    That made me laugh. Wish could understand the German. Very cute! Love leopard apps too.

    It would be neat to understand! I think that horse is a Knabstrupper, not an Appaloosa. He's adorable, isn't he?

    Wow, I don't think I've ever seen a skit that involved with so many different actions and reactions, wonderful!

    Great relationship with her horse. Fabulous.

    Plus, that horse is beautiful.

    that was CHARMING

    I love that the horse was not at all resentful, but rather looked perfectly happy playing along with his trainer.

    I'd love to watch that trainer at work.

    what a happy pair. Nothing like Tom Turkey I mean Turvey. Those horses are empty vessels.

    I agree, it did seem like the horse was enjoying the interactions (and the reinforcement with treats!). So cute. I think it just backs up my feelings that, yep, even if I could never ride, I'd still have horses in my life somehow!

    The bit with the dog climbing on top of/over the horse was really impressive! Good horsie!

    I may be mistaken but it seems like an old horse book/encyclopedia I had said knabstruppers (OK totally killed that spelling, but anyway) were good circus horses. I can imagine needing a horse with a natural inclination to learn tricks for that show!

    The horse seems to understand the idea of comedy, that this is in fact an "act." When she "reprimands" him he doesn't take the demeanor of a reprimanded animal but of a fall guy in a classic comedy. I am limited in German so I watched with the sound off. It's like watching silent movie comedy.
    Very funny indeed.

    He sure does seem to "get" that he's performing for audience reaction. Even without understanding the language, the cues were so subtle - this is a really amazing duo!

    katarine, I agree with you on TT, saw him at the PA Horse World Expo... basically hated every minute of it.
