This girl riding the horse is in her 20’s – her dad just died 24 days before this performance. You can hear her dedication to him just before her performance so turn up your speakers a bit.
Notice that it is just her and the horse – no bit,no saddle. She just uses signals and verbal cues, she’s mute. Oh yeah, this isn’t even her horse. She is training it for someone else, although she obviously has a relationship with this one.
