Alex Hiniker, my colleague at Ecumen, had a great opportunity recently to ride horses with former Minnesota Governor Al Quie.   You can read her post about it here.  Interesting tidbits from this video include:

-    The horse that Gov. Quie so skillfully rides is being guided by Gov. Quie’s body cues, which is pretty amazing.  This horse didn't start off as the most cooperative horse until it went to class with Gov. Quie.

-    Gov. Quie had set a goal for himself many years ago to ride horses until he’s 80.  He’ll be 90 in September.

-    Even if you don’t know how to ride a horse, there’s some good advice from Gov. Quie in this video.

Enjoy.
