Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

If Only I Was This Good!

I found this on YouTube and think it is probably the most amazing demonstration of training and trust in horses that I have ever seen!

No saddle, no reins and complete control!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

He is The Horse Whisperer for sure. I don't know how he does that, but how gorgeous!! Amazing. I loved watching the video. If only I could train my dogs so well.

I have to add, Ian, can you imagine the time, the work, the patience this man has to train these horses?!! Bet he starts them at a very young age. Love how they run with him. So pretty.

Wow! That was beautiful and inspiring. I enjoyed every minute. I hope more and more, horses are "gentled" rather than "broken". Thanks for sharing this.

WoW!! how wonderful Ian. Man and horse so close that they are almost one. We have a Spanish place in Oz where the horses are taught like this, and they seem happy doing it.. It doesn't seem a chore. Its called El Caballo Blanco. The white horse.. they are so clever.. Just loved seeing this. Its happiness in motion. And I loved him kissing the horse also.

You might enjoy this too. It's been around for a while, but I'm still amazed -
