Don't miss the following scenes: (a) riding her stallion out with the mare and foal, (2) ring work with the ducks, and (3) mowing the lawn with the horses. And plenty more she does in this video! Makes me want to visit England and hang out at her farm!
I like the way the foal walks up to her and lets her pat him without the normal jerky response foals have by nature when doing that, to be wiggly and impatient.
He has a more mature horse's response.
Will be interesting to see how he is as an adult.
The way she, from her horse, parks horses and then goes back and works with them independently, that I had not seen before.
I'm failing to see what is so terrible about this. Horses all look to be in good health, rider is wearing safety gear. I've never quite understood why some NH types are so obsessed with the "tarp method" - personally I would not *want* my horses to be completely desensitized, but that's just me.
The only parts that put me off is working the stallion in the same field as loose mare and foal (????) - not really sure what she's hoping to gain from this. Leading from a car is also not something I would do.
Each to their own.
