Video du Jour: Doma India

I’ve never seen anything like this bizarre yet mesmerizing display of natural horsemanship in the tradition of Doma India, an Argentinian system of horse-training.

The method is to tame the horse according to its nature, avoiding fear and pain, and earning their trust and loyalty. This method provides us clear notions of how to treat the horse, and when and how to teach, and what we want to achieve.
