Oscar Pistorius vs a HORSE [01:31]
Subscribe for the latest news from SNTV: bit.ly "Bladerunner" Oscar Pistorius raced against a horse in Doha on Wednesday and won - all in an effort to promote disability sport and fight discrimination in the region. Normally when a horse takes on a human in a race there's usually only one winner but that was before Oscar Pistorius challenged a noble steed to a sprint and it was the horse who came away with a long face. The Aspire Zone in Doha witnessed "Bladerunner", beating an Arabian horse as part of the 'Definitely Able' campaign which uses special events to highlight the exceptional feats Paralympic athletes are capable of. Reporter question: "Oscar, how was it?" Oscar Pistorius: "I think you know, for what it's... it wasn't about who won today, it was just about coming out here and really just showing people that those (people) with disabilities are not to be stereotyped against... Having the Arab horse out here, which is a symbolisation of strength and power in this region... To be able to do a showcase event like this is a lot of fun. So thanks to everybody who came out here, it was a good night and hopefully it will do a lot to change the perceptions of people with disabilities in this region."

Bluffalatta WON 3rd on 11.10.12 @ Delta Downs.avi [03:35]
Bluff destroyed the field in the 3rd race at Delta Downs on Saturday evening at Delta Downs! I think he has finally got it figured out as he WON this race by 11 ½ lengths. He broke with the pack and proceeded to press for the lead to the first turn. He then sat off the leader until they turned for home. It looked like our Jock had plenty of horse. I guess he did! Half way into the turn he collared the leader and set sail for home widening his advantage with every stride! Wow - finally a great aggressive ride by Bluff's new favorite jock "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and a very strong finish! Congrats to all the connections, especially the ones that showed up!!

Kerry Thomas Explains Emotional Conformation of a Horse [01:21]

Thomas is a researcher and has pioneered these methods not only for the benefit of horse racing but for human therapeutic applications such as working with children with special needs, autism and with war heroes transition. The result of Thomas' work is the formation of the Thomas Herding Technique: Equine Athletic Psychology Specializing in Emotional Conformation Profiling. Thomas is the author of Horse Profiling: The Secret to Motivating Equine Athletes.
