Extreme horse makeover

Virginie Bernhard, a horse trainer from Switzerland, kisses Stormy, a 2-year-old Quarter Horse, on Friday at Spring Creek Horse Rescue in Gem Village. Bernhard donated a week of her time at the horse rescue working with three of the most abused animals. “Two days ago, Stormy was a multi-traumatic horse that you couldn’t touch. He would bite, kick and had no interest in humans – just food. But (by) being gentle, showing respect and playing with them, you build their confidence and clean the trauma. It’s like building a home – you have to start from the base,” Bernhard said.
