I meant to say that before, Pottie Pam, about the horses in War and Peace, because Pat E said she didn't watch that sort of film because of the horses getting hurt.
The horses don't get hurt, it's a highly skilled business and the horses are valuable and very well trained. The Devil's Horsemen supplied horses for the War Horse film and Downton Abbey. The family have been riding all their lives and are very talented. The barbed wire in War Horse was made from string and plastic.
A lot of the horses are Spanish and Lusitanos from Portugal, beautiful and intelligent. My Hannah is Spanish/Lusitano and Lena is Lusitano, also very comfortable for the older rider!
