Video of Jonathan Field from Road to the Horse

I'm such a novice with horses, though I've loved them all my life. At 59, I'm still a beginner with my lovely Journey. But if I were able to go to a clinic, afford a dvd training series, I'd go for this guy.

I ran across him looking for videos on youtube. He has a great facebook page. This was on his wall recently. Such a noble, awesome young man. Just watch. I wish I'd been there...

I had never heard of Johnathan Field before RTTH, which to me is what RTTH is all about. I really don't think colt starting should be a speed competition, but RTTH does give horse people a chance to "sample" several clinicians and their techniques side by side. I must say I'm pretty impressed with what I've seen of J. Field.

I agree. That poor baby was stressed. Why do they think that putting them through this in front of huge crowd is a good thing. I respect Jonathan, but I sure felt sorry for that colt. It's like a rodeo atmosphere. Whew. It sure says a lot for the soul of that horse that he was able to handle all of that chaos and still come out trusting Jonathan as much as he did, God love him!

Still, like you say, I suppose it's a way to see lots of clinicians in action and assess them. In thinking more about it, I'm not sure "training" in that kind of atmosphere would give the truest picture. Hmmm...

Jonathon is way too excited and enthusiastic for this early in the morning lol. Seems like a good dude though. Passionate about what he does and clearly loves the horses.

I've always thought that RTTH would be cooler as a problem-solving competition rather than a colt starting. I've always loved to watch these guys take a horse with all of the typical issues and and skillfully get them started on the right track. With the understanding that it's not that the horse is now 'fixed' but has at least taken the first step. To my point of view, that's slightly less offensive to the horse than colt starting on a clock.
