    It is quite impressive but, lots of screaming... Not sure I would like to do that.

    I thought it was neat to see a new generation of handlers. It must take quite some time to perfect!

    Looks like fun. Loud voice is good for diaphragm training I suppose.

    Cool horses! They were def ready for some heavy pulling!!

    Actually, put some blinders on my horse (so he can't tell I'm NOT carrying a driving whip) and put him in a place without any tempting grass, and I don't think it would be hard to achieve left, right, stop and back by voice. Although I only have one horse not a pair.

    Yes, understand why they dock their tails, but this was excessive.
