This is absolutely amazing.
READ THIS FIRST, THEN WATCH!!!
The girl riding the horse is a deaf mute…she can’t hear, nor can she speak. No bridle, no saddle…all commands are by touch only.
This is one of those, “I wouldn’t believe it unless I saw it with my own eyes” kind of thing.
This girl is in her 20’s – her father passed away just 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 she and the horse—no bit, no saddle. She uses signals and touch cues, she’s mute.
Oh yes, this isn’t even her horse. She is training it for someone else, although she obviously has a good relationship.
