Canadian horse trainer Jonathan Field thinks that many riders have lost sight of horsemanship as a collaboration between horse and rider – a dynamic that he believes rests in understanding humans as predatory animals and horses as prey. In this short video taken from a half hour documentary created for Red Bull Media House, Field recalls how a particularly challenging horse taught him to reconsider his harsh horse-breaking methods, and explains how he’s spreading his message of ‘observance, patience and understanding’ to the riding community.
