One made me a little teary-eyed. I had watched a bunch a few months ago and they made me cry...One of them was the last one you have posted I believe.

I will always remember watching it on TV. I cried and cried. There was one video I saw a long time ago that I can't find again but it was set to Coldplay's "Fix You". It seems almost like that song was wrote for him. This song makes me cry something awful. :''(
Here is a link to the song, I don't know if it will work. You have to go to the bottom under "Top Songs" and click the song title.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
