Randy Bird is a horse trainer based in Canada renown for his work with problem carriage horses in addition to driving and riding horse.
When Randy met Australian horseman Alan Barber in 1986, Barber imparted the training knowledge of the legendary J.D. Wilton. A trip to Australia with Barber and a load of horses changed his way of thinking, and ultimately his life. "When I saw what they were able to do with a horse, I realized this was what I wanted to do with my life and that if I couldn't do the same, I would never be happy in the horse business again," says Randy. "I have been using and adapting these methods to my needs in educating riding and driving horses ever since."

A wonderful and moving tribute to the Trakehner . . . the European warmblood that originated in East Prussia hundreds of years ago which has managed to survive despite the ravages of World War II and a 1,000 mile trek across ice and frozen land to the west to escape Russian army. Contains remarkable old film footage of horses from the 1920's and 1930's -- a period of peace between the two world warsin Europe. A really good documentary which should be of interest to any horseperson! One hour and sixteen minutes without breaks.
