Thank you for the inspiration! Pusher went blind 3 months ago and we are having our hard times picking up riding again. This clip has renewed that hope for us! Thank you!

I wonder how many people have put horses down on the advice of the vet that could have went on to have really productive quality lives. I know it depends on a lot of variables in any situation but at least there is hope that it can turn out alright.

Sniff, sniff...
Yes, herdbound it's about faith and hope, isn't it? And tons of devotion. From the horse's side of things, what amazing trust in his rider!

A very impressive pair, no doubt, but can I be the only naysayer? He trusts her over the jumps, but she has no way of conveying how high or wide they are. Several times he banged his legs (unprotected cannon bones) very hard on those heavy metal barrels. That doesn't me.

well I have a horse that isn't blind who is very lazy and can SEE obstacles i want her to clear and she still bumps her legs sometimes...I think the thing I found the most impressive was its ability to back up so well and through things...I think in the video the girl accidentally bumps the horses nose when she is closing the gate in that competition and she says "oh I'm sorry" to the horse. I know it may not be perfect BUT she loves the horse and the horse obviously trusts her completely :)

Add me to the number of criers here. Especially since I have a horse that went suddenly blind a couple years ago and we had to overcome the very same things. The nay-sayers that told me to put him down, that he was now useless, the panic on his part that he was not able to function in the way he always had, my own personal struggle not to lose hope when things weren't going so well. Very touching video... Thanks for posting.

That is an amazing horse! You need Sarah Mclachlan music in the background of it and then you will be really crying. (Had to make a joke about here)
