Since the old times when the human came to domesticate animals to varies services, horses have been participating in mankind daily life.
Horse taming is an activity based not only on service and force employing but also for amusement and sports reasons.
A very fancy way to know more about horse ridings and horse taming is watching the movie HIDALGO.
This film depicts a story of a very experienced American horse riding called Frank Hopkins riding a beautiful mustang horse.
