Stacy Westfall

video

I received this email today. I believe I had seen it in the past, but regardless it was like seeing it for the first time again it is so amazing, powerful and inspirational.

I dedicate this to all who have over come difficulty, thriving not in spite of them but because of them.

Post Script: Stacy is not deaf as previously posted, none the less, what she has accomplished is remarkable.

A Horse Whisperer

THIS IS NOTHING SHORT OF AWESOME... This is absolutely amazing ...no bridle, no saddle... All commands are by touch only.

This girl riding the horse 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 her and the horse - no bit, no saddle. She uses signals and touch cues.
Oh yes, this isn't even her horse. She is training it for someone else, although she obviously has a relationship with this one.
