Yet the Suffolk Punch horse - Britain's oldest native breed - is...

Comments01/08/2016 #14 Rebel Brown#10 HI @Phil Friedman Ya know,my Shadow man did the same thing for a young lady he was training to jump and do dressage... She was out of position and it could have been so bad... but he managed the ump and then positioned himself to protect her with his neck. Who says horses aren't smart? And they are SO empathic. Amazing spirits and I'm honored to care for my little herd:)01/08/2016 #11 Lisa Gallagher#10 He's beautiful @phil friedman. What a moving story about your daughter's horse saving her from flying over his neck. Horses IMHO are much smarter than some people are aware. They have a keen sense (that sixth sense) and they are able to determine if they can trust their handlers and riders. My daughter's first Morgan (Dumars Detonator, AKA- Nate) was an ex-stud. He was gorgeous and very high spirited. I was nervous when the trainer asked my daughter to show him and train him with her. Eventually we became co-owners after we saw the ultimate trust/bond they built together. She could walk in the stall while he was lying down and he would not get up. She would sit next to him and caress him. I wondered if that was just his nature so I tried it.. NOPE- he stood up as soon as I walked in. I love horses! I remember the letter you wrote to your daughter, it was beautiful.01/08/2016 #10 Phil Friedman@Rebel Brown - Delightful post. The bond with a horse can be very strong -- both ways. We own a big Russian Arab more than 15 hands, now over 20 years old. A true beauty. When our girls were a lot younger and less experienced as riders, he would be very gentle with them on his back. Only when they got older, stronger, and more experienced and commanding as riders, did he start to really kick up his heels in exuberance as Arabs are wont to do. It was evident how sensitive he was to them when one day my older daughter made a mistake during a jump. He landed hard and she slid forward looking as though she would catapult right over his head, but she didn't. Because as we could see in a video later he stretched his neck erect and back to keep her on his back, even though he was struggling at the same time to keep his footing. Truly amazing. You can see him in the title photo in the following post: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/three-points-of-advice-to-my-teenage-daughter01/08/2016 #6 Rebel Brown#5 I've had the honor of caring for so many horses in my life. He is the special one. Love him so and if I could, he'd be in the house with me. Total lover.... so gentle. I can put a baby on him and he's so careful. I get on him and we FLY with energy. Precious soul and I'm so blessed to have him in my life @Lisa Gallagher Hope the rest of the family visit was a blast!!31/07/2016 #5 Lisa Gallagher#3 I'm so glad you found a friend in your horse @Rebel Brown!! He sounds like a love! We purchased Nero when he was 2.5 yrs old. I'll never forget my daughter telling the person who came up with the horse trailer to transport Nero to his new home, "I want to walk my horse onto the trailer." I was petrified because he was young and we both know how spooked horses can become when leading them into a trailer. He went in with her like they had been friends for years. I'm sure he sensed trust from the moment she met him. We spent a lot of time with him before we made our final decision. I agree with @Bill Stankiewicz, great photo to duplicate by an artist and then you can frame it!30/07/2016 #3 Rebel Brown#2 He is my love bug. If he could, he'd sleep in my lap on the couch. And he's SO athletic. But mostly, he's a lover. He was a champion young and then got hurt, had a few offspring ad then was gelded and sent into the world... to a woman who was terrified of him, When I got him he was a mess... but it didnt take long for him to settle in and return to his Phenomenal self. I'm SO honored to be his human! XOXO
