Humane horse-training means understanding humans as predators and horses as prey

From the farm to the battlefield to the frontier, the bond between horses and humans has endured for thousands of years. However, the 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 documentary from the Canada-based production company Salazar, 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.
