Posted by Paige Cerulli

You can't help but be in awe of the grace and absolute communication between this horse and his rider.

Do you love the beach scene from "The Black Stallion"? And do you marvel at the incredible training of the horses in "The Horse Whisperer"? Then you're going to love this video, which shows off the awesome training of a Haflinger stallion and the bond that he shares with his rider.

Nibbit, the stallion, is blessed with floating gaits and a mane and tail which go on for miles. His rider, Lisa, has an awesome seat and gentle hands. Together, the pair gallop, canter through water, and show off the many tricks that Nibbit knows, including rearing on command.

Framed by gorgeous scenery, stunning sunsets, and the occasional slow-motion shot, this is everything that a horse lover wants in a video.

Haflingers originate from Austria and Italy. These horses may be small in size, but they're powerful and athletic.

Haflingers are known for having energetic gaits, which Nibbit shows off here. They are also known for being quiet, kind, and intelligent.

Perhaps the most thrilling part of this video is Nibbit's beautiful rearing under saddle. Teaching a horse to rear can be dangerous if you don't know just what you're doing.

Watch how Nibbit rears - it's balanced, deliberate, and controlled, and his rider always stays in an ideal position, balanced forward without pulling back on his neck or the reins. It's obvious that this is a skilled pair who work beautifully together.
