Stefanie has an astounding relationship with her two horses. One of them, Bjorn, is an Icelandic horse and was born in 1993. The other, Menor GPZ, is an Aegidienberger Stallion born in 2008. Stefanie raised both of them with the same five principles in mind: motivation, trust, respect, communication and body language. She believes that mutual trust is what creates the strong bond between herself and her horses.
While Stefanie’s bond with her horses is clearly something special, it is no surprise that these gentle giants felt connected to their caretaker. According to National Geographic, humans have been domesticating horses for around 4,000 years. Asian nomads were most likely the first people to do so. Horses became an integral part of many human societies, especially before the engine was invented as they were used for transportation. Because horses have long been associated with heroic acts in war, many cultures still honor these amazing animals.
We at Viral Tales saw Stefanie interacting with her horses and immediately knew that this was a special story that needed to be shared. Even though horses and humans have coexisted and enjoyed mutually beneficial relationships for thousands of years, there are very few that have such an intimately trusting relationship as Stefanie and Bjorn and Menor GPZ. The fact that Stefanie can cuddle these huge creatures like babies is simply astounding.
