This Wild Horse Couldn’t Be Tamed – Until He Met A Disabled Boy.


Horses, even wild horses, have an innate sense of our true intentions. In turn, they are honest with us. This is why Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy is growing in popularity as a means to reach those who have trouble reaching out for help. Habitat for Horses will be offering Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy. We will be doing a spotlight on what our program has to offer in our upcoming newsletter. Be sure to sign up if you do not yet receive it.

The new horse on the ranch is a little rough. He gets wild around the other horses and definitely doesn’t like people. The little boy is one of only 150 people in Israel with Williams Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder.

When they first encounter each other, no one expected this to happen. At first, onlookers tried to call the boy to come back, but as soon as they noticed how gentle the wild stallion became when he met the young boy, they knew something miraculous had happened. A disabled boy was the only person on the ranch who could bring out the gentle side of this beast.

This is exactly why people say “there are angels amongst us”. This encounter brought me to tears. Please SHARE the joy with others.

    That kid should have NEVER EVER been allowed ANYWHERE near that stallion! If it was known the horse didn’t like people, why was a disabled kid allowed near him?

    I agree that the child should not have been in the arena with this horse. After reading this piece, and then seeing please donate at the end, I am wondering if videos I see anymore are staged for various reasons.

  • The child was not in danger. The horse tried to make contact with the child before shooting and you can see the body language of your horse and the horse’s reactions were soft and contain even when the child waved his hands. I stood next to him and when he came to the back I approached him and asked him to stay away, yet the horse stood in place until the child away from him completely.

    I’m a true believer that horses pick their owners and this little boy has found a friend for life

    I agree with many who says horses pick their owners, the mare I saved from an abusive trainer I thought I was going to be hers, even though she allows me to be with her its my son who belongs to her. It is awesome to see.

    as for this story, I think someone needs to adopt the little boy, & then adopt the stallion & raise them together.
