Stacy Westfall, deaf and mute?
I’m the girl with horses at work. People here know almost nothing about me - except I’m the girl with the horses. Because of this, I get ever single horse related forwarded email ever written and this Stacy Westfall one is my favorite… Complete with touching but very much untrue story about the “silent horse whisperer”
Where do people come up with this stuff? Her story and skill is amazing enough!

This is absolutely awesome… this girl is mute,… she can’t hear, nor can she speak. No bridle, no saddle… all commands are by touch only. This is one of those, “I wouldn’t believe it unless I saw it with my own eyes” kind of thing. This girl riding the horse is in her 20’s - her father passed away just 24 days before this performance. You can hear her dedication to him just before her performance so turn up your speakers a bit. Notice that it is just her and the horse - no bit, no saddle. She uses signals and touch cues, she’s mute
