Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
I have just attended Equitana an horse expo held in Sydney Australia where the world's best horse trainers and/or riders have gathered to impart their knowledge. One of the participants was Stacy Westfall from the USA. Those interested in bringing out the best in our animals can only marvel at the trust and respect this horse has for her rider. This youtube clip I have was from 2006 when she was competing freestyle having just lost her father shortly before the event paying tribute to him. She rides without a bridle or saddle to a very enthusiast and noisy audience.
There are lessons to be learnt from this in the way we communicate and treat others whether they be dogs, people or horses in order to bring out the best in them and ourselves.
