    Deaf mute girl rides horse for father who died 24 days prior

    A deaf-mute girl on a horse that she has ridden for only THREE weeks!!, not to mention the song she picked out to dedicate to her deceased father! Listen to the announcer's voice crack! The horse she is riding is not even hers; she is training it for a client and has had it only 20 days at the time of the ride shown here. Note that she rides without a saddle or halter and bit and (obviously) without voice commands. She is using the method used by North American Indians.




    Needless to say I am blubbering as I share this.
    To laugh often, to win the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch... to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
    This is to have succeeded! - Emerson

    Sorry if this bursts bubbles, but this story has been circulating the internet for months. Here's the story in the rider's own words.

    Wow! I just found this? It is still awesome to watch her and how she has control over the horse by touch. She's amazing!

    Regardless of Stacy's hearing or speaking prowess, she is doing amazing work. I was thrilled to see all the positive re-enforcement she gave through out the presentation. It was neat to see the lead changes that were seamless, just slight pressure and lean. If I had a horse, I would want it trained by her.
    Thanks for the posting, and FMN for the interview with Ellen.
