And they arrived dressed up in matching Shetland knitwear, naturally. Albert and Ernie's owner is Emma Massingale, one of England's top horse trainers, who claims to have developed her own language that she says allows her to communicate with herds of horses.

The ponies ran free among the herds while Massingale camped out nearby and made stops to learn about their history.
