    Default Everyone who owns horses should watch this!

    This brought tears to my eyes, it shows an incredible bond between two souls.

    I know from experience that the more time you spend with your horse, the more freedom you give him, the more you are humbled by these incredibly special creatures.

    It really was lovely footage! I loved the obvious trust, and watching a horse encouraged to behave like a horse. Thanks for posting it!

    Beautiful; however, I hope riders, especially young riders don't try this at home. While its wonderful to have that kind of bond, doing what was done in this video takes lots of training - not just bonding. Too many people that get out and "play" with their horses in the pasture can find themselves in a sticky situation and could get hurt.

    I don't know. I saw a lot of treats involved and he looked kind of aggressive rearing up and plunging. I didn't see that much of a bond.

    I prefer this performance.

    I respect the training involved but think the Andalusian comes across as fairly agressive also.

    I thought the Andalusion also a bit agressive but lovely photography and brave girl.
    Here is a perfectly trained beastie, no agression whatsover...or is it just trick videography??

    Riding is not a gentle hobby to be picked up and laid down. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and once it has done so he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.

    Hasn't anyone watched any of the Parelli stuff? It's quite attainable, and not "dangerous" as some may think... (Oh boy... I suddenly feel a trainwreck coming *rolls eyes*)

    Well now, do you really think that somebody did dressage on a bull?

    Personally I don't like it. I have handled several stallions, one of which was a nightmare in every sense of the word. At several points in the video he is herding her, making her move when HE wants her to. I'd hate to think what this horse is like to handle behind the scenes. I could be totally wrong of course, but certainly not for me

    I'm inclined to disagree with the notion that the horse [stallion?] in the video is herding/dominating the girl with him. I think he's playing with her, which my stallion [as well as my previous stallion, who I had for many years] does with me, too, and though it's something that could be seriously dangerous without a TOTAL understanding of the horse concerned, with a naturally dominant horse, or if the play was ever allowed to get out of hand, personally I'd agree with the OP that these two look to be pretty "connected".

    Thumbs up

    ms raven...WOW...Spectacular...Thanks for sharing. The balance between horse and rider is perfect. That's the ultimate bond between two skilled atheletes!

    the horse is wearing a bridle, the trainer is carrying a whip - it's a circus act, and very easy manouvers at that. the horse is not being aggressive or 'dangerous', and would not be 'dangerous offstage'...he's not being 'allowed to be a horse', he's just doing tricks on command.

    just going around here and there, and i'm sure he was started off in the right direction with a healthy smack on the tushie.

    ok...fine...she's wearing some filmy thing and the lights are dramatic and it's not the usual...no, it does nothing for me. it's a circus act, and not a particularly skilled one at that. i'm sure some people like it, but 'freedom'? 'two souls bonding'? spare me.

    Yes, it's circus. I can appreciate circus. Looks like a Cavalia type act. Horse could stand to lose some weight! Must be all those food rewards.

    Not really my cup of tea, and I don't see why everyone who owns a horse should watch it. My horse and I have a great bond too. She nickers when she sees me and I dispense sugar, but at least I don't put it on youtube.
