Mike Bertin, along with Becca Justice and his wife Carolyn Meinel, has been training Vikingo to be a trail horse. This video shows Vikingo learning to behave even around mares in heat, including the dams of his colts.
Flaming V's Sunflower (HOA 1566, the darker of the mares) and Flaming V's Raven (HOA 1557) at play. Note how smooth they are even at the gallop.
Alice's story. This video includes scenes of all of Vikingo's colts galloping in their mountain valley pasture. This ensures that they grow strong bones and muscles and become confident and sure of foot.
