Have you been wondering who Louie the blogging horse is? Watch the video below to see.

He belongs to Emmie Fisher and she has trained him to ride bridleless all by herself! Well, she did:

  • watch the Westfall Horsemanship DVD’s (watch Louie bow and ride bridleless in video below)
  •  take lessons from Jesse Westfall
  • Worked really, really hard!

Louie and Newt (pictured here and in video below) are stalled beside each other at the All American Quarter Horse Congress.  Louie has been blogging daily about his Congress experience and will continue blogging throughout the week.

How many barn names do you have for your horse? Louie also goes by the names: Louis, The Lou Man, Sir Louie and My Pony but is registered as Whiz Bye Gollie.

    It;s hilarious watching the two horses “conversation” during this interview. Very entertaining!

      Newt (the one Jesse was riding) was just saddled and was so full of himself he could hardly stand still! He is the type of horse that will take his own leg wraps off and dig holes in the dirt with his nose just to be a clown!

    Great video. I just wonder why he is “wringing” his tail all the time?

    WOW! Great job Emmie, does my heart good, now that I’m wheelchair bound I love at least being able to view things like this especially through Stacey’s site. “You’ve come a long way lady” 🙂

    Just beautiful <3 Emmy and Louie you truly did a wonderful job 🙂 I hope to accomplish this with my mare. I too work a full time job and work at a barn, and training my first horse. This story really inspires me, I hope one day to be this great! Thank you

    Way to go Emmie and Louie. Makes me miss WJ.

      Don’t we all! The good news is we have a barn full of the bloodlines….really! The horse that Louie has been blogging about is out of a Whizard Jac mare (Newt), Jesse has two foals by Vaquero (the Titanic freestyle) out of a WJ mare. We are riding two out of Roxy…a WJ mare. He is alive and well in his foals….and we LOVE them!
