Additional Information

No subject intrigued Olaf Wieghorst more than the horse. “I’ve been observing horses for so many years that I guess I’ve begun to think like one,” says in his book Olaf Wieghorst. “That’s what I mean when I say that the horse has been my greatest teacher. Horses have been my companions under nearly all possible conditions. I have frozen with them at night in sub-zero weather; ridden across the desert in some of the hottest days on record; starved with them and hunted water with them longer than I care to remember. I have nailed shoes onto hundreds of them; been kicked, bitten, squeezed, bucked off, stepped on by them, and fallen from them, but in spite of all the hurt and broken bones, I have no regrets. Any measure of success that I now enjoy, I owe to them. Horses have been my life!”
