Horses are incredible animals. And one of the most majestic things about them is the way it runs. It’s always beautiful to see a horse galloping through a field, mane flowing.

However, getting a horse to run on command is a bit tricky. It requires a good amount of training.

Unlike dogs, horses are quite harder to train.

There are various ways to let them understand a command and there are tons of things to consider while teaching them. Moreover, it takes quite a lot of time depending on the horse’s temperament. But if you’re patient enough, then your efforts will certainly be rewarded.

Just watch this man call his horse with a single whistle.

Jos Smoolenaers is a hardcore horse lover, and in his videos, you could see how much the horses love him. He looks like he’s an expert horse whisperer.

In this video, he brags about the way he calls his horse to him. The video shows his Belgian Draft Horse peacefully feasting on the grass from afar. When Jos whistles at the horse, it took quite some time for the sound to reach him.

You can see the exact moment when the horse hears Jos’ whistle. The horse from the distance raises its head to look at where the sound was coming from. When the horse realizes that he was being called, he immediately stops what he’s doing then gallops towards Jos.

Although, the horse seems to be working his way the long way around. It’s a bit hilarious how it took a while until he finally reaches his owner.

It’s amazing how this horse responded without anything else than a single whistle.

Most horses need to be shown a piece of motivation, like food, so they’d come to you. However, Jos managed to call his horse with just a single whistle. It’s quite a feat that he was able to train his horse like that.

At a closer look, this horse is one astonishingly large horse.

The moment he comes closer to his owner, you’ll get a rough idea of how big this horse is. It has a lean body and large thick hooves that you can just imagine its strength.

Furthermore, its hair and frills are surprisingly long that you can also imagine its beautiful mane flying along with the wind while it gallops.

Belgian Drafts are a beauty to behold.

Belgian draft horses are a breed that originates from Brabant, Belgium. In the past, they are famous as mighty war horses. These horses boast their strength with their massive body.

They can also pull a wagon load that weighs thrice heavier than them and could do it for a long period of time. Furthermore, their calm temperament makes these horses great as companions.

While these horses are suitable for pulling carts, they can also be ridden casually.

Belgian drafts are hard workers and some think that they are only meant to carry loads to their destination. However, some people think that they are also capable of being ridden like other horses.

There are plenty of downsides, however, like how tough they are to ride not to mention the amount of training that you give for them to adjust.

The horses are a bit tall, which can make it a challenge to get on their back. However, with some training and the right equipment, you can ride them with each.

Check out the sweet video of the horse running below!
