I love this.

I love this video.
its just nice how she takes her time & waits for the horse to trust her,
instead of just jumping on his back & dragging him around. and as a result, the horse is a complete angel about it.
i like how the horse is resting his leg pretty much the whole time, even when shes on him, as soon as he stops walking he goes straight back to resting his leg. just shows how relaxed he is & how much he trusts her. :)

Great, love the way the girl got his trust but horses are supposed to be ridden from the age of 3 except racehorses or something? Not sure.

There is a huge difference between taking your time with a young horse. And working a horse when they are young. By this video it seems like the lady dosen't 'work' her young horse hard. I think this is fine. Racehorses shouldn't even be racing until they are 4 (thats my personal opinion). But they do it anyway. Its too hard on their bodies. The stuff this lady is doing is fine to do all day long I think. Shes not working her horse to the ground.

I liked a lot of things she did... but personally I don't care for all the treats she used along with him having his head in a bucket of food for some stuff.
I also don't think it was the smartest idea to be crawling under the horse, or mounting backwards and sliding off the rear of a baby..... but she didn't get hurt. So, oh well.
Overall it was nice and the horse was calm and relaxed about things.
