Today my mother sent me an article that showed what proper training and teamwork between horse and trainers can make a difference in a bad situation.
Here's what happened, during a show the Budweiser Clydesdale team was consisted of 8 horses attached to a wagon. While performing a series of difficult tasks, there was a shocking surprise. One of the clydesdales slipped causing two others to fall and get stuck under the equipment! Instead of what you might expect (the horses freaking out and others getting injured) the unexpected happens. The horses stop dead in there place and remain calm while the trainers race to rescue the stuck horses. It was amazing to see how good training of these horses lead to an amazing result.
After about 5 minutes the trainers were able to help the horses without any injuries. When training an animal you develop a bond. In this situation it took a lot of trust between horse and trainer. I hope that when I am able to train horses I can develop the same bond.
Here is the article with the video of what happend that was sent to me:
