World’s best horse whisperer Martin Tatta lulls mare into incredible manoeuvres nobody else would dare to try
These incredible photographs show the world’s best horse whisperer who lulls his animals into performing tricks nobody else even dare to try.
Martin Tatta, 32, has such a close bond with his favourite Primavera that he can talk her into rolling on her back with her legs in the air so he can sit on her tummy.
The self-taught horse tamer can sit under her hooves, do handstands on her neck and even coax her into lying on her side and giving him a cuddle.
Martin grew up around horses on a ranch in San Antonio de Areco, a province of Buenos Aires in Argentina, where his parents worked.
The ranch owners spotted his close bond with the horses as a child and encouraged him to practise the shows he now gives to thousands of tourists from all over the world.
It takes the talented showman just a year to train the animals at Estancia La Bamba de Areco where he keeps 32 animals – six of which he uses in his whispering acts.
They trust him implicitly and allow him to shuffle their feet around, roll them around the field and even give them a kiss on the lips.
Colleague Marca Felices said: “Martin grew up in La Bamba because his parents used to work for the previous owners, so he pretty much grew up riding horses.
“Horses were his toys, transportation to school, they were everything to him.
“Martin has always said that he doesn’t believe he has a special gift – for him it is something natural.
“He only started to perform when the owners saw him a couple of times playing with different horses and encouraged him to show it to the people.
“Nowadays he works as a freelance and he is getting more popular each day around the region and different countries.
“It takes between a year and 18 months to have the horses ready, but it depends on the horse.
“They are like children at school, one day they can learn a lot and the next day they are stuck in something and can not continue.”
