All horses in this event will undergo extremely thorough training, and all of these horses were previously untrained or very green.

From Grace, her trainer:

The constant awareness of me on the ground has translated as constant awareness of me in the saddle. Tamale is ever-present. She almost always has an ear on me to be sure all is well. I never feel as though she’s forgotten about me or has any sort of agenda. Wherever we go, there is an unexplainable feeling that we are going together. Neither of us having to argue with the other, she asks questions and accepts my answer and I do the same for her. It brings such a sense of trustworthiness in her that I really can’t put into words. She looks out for me just as she would look out for her herd, and that feels pretty darn special. Even in unfamiliar territory, she stays with me. I have a feeling she’s a horse that, be it physically or emotionally, she will never really leave.♥️
