Think they moved his heart to the same museum, it was in Canberra before (it is massive, I couldn't believe it!). Skeleton is in a museum in NZ and the remainder buried. So glad Phar Lap is still known across the world

Have a look at some of the Pignon brothers on You Tube. They've taken Monty Roberts methods to the next step. If I died and came back as a hose, I would want to be owned by these two guys. Have tried their methods with my giant Clydedales and it works!
Have posted a really beautiful vid for you. Enjoy! Did this with my boys and it is all about letting horses behave like horses and speaking the language of 'equus' which uses no words, only subtle movement.

Its a lot like the style of Hempfling and Honza Blaha and very impressive though not something I'd want to try at home!!! Best left to the young and agile
I know Hempflings style of liberty work is very different to the stuff Monty Roberts does which he compares to the prey/predator approach where the horse works with you because it feels defeated rather than as a willing partner

Its something I am in total agreement with so I was really pleased to discover Hempflings thoughts on it Its why I disliked the MR join up routine as it was always the impression it gave me

... & I've just learned about a Monty Roberts 'quick fix' called a 'buck stop' - similar to a 'war bridle' only harsher, as it is thin cord that goes across the horse's gum - hmmm, sounds very humane & non-forceful.... NOT!

I've done Parelli catch me game in an Olympic size indoor arena. Takes longer, but keeps you fit :). A round pen is not necessary and for some horses can be too claustrophobic.
Actually, come to think of it, I've done it in a 5 acre field with a horse they hadn't been able to catch for 3 months. Don't get hung up on the equipment, it's the timing that matters.

I avoid anything that involves too much running around and I also find that I get bored a long time before the horse does!!!!

Tell her to take videos of you riding - that will be incentive enough to starve yourself - worked with my husband (me too shhhhhhh!!!)
