Holy typos Batman! I meant to say "I wish the horses had their ears forward more..." That's what you get for writing things when you really should be asleep, I guess!

In particular at 0:32-0:45 or so, I have not seen a horse being aggressive with their ears farther back than that and I've spent many many hours being around horses and watching them interact at liberty with each other. It might be a similar thing to when a horse is working cows and they have their ears back, but a human is not a cow...
But yeah, your second point is how I reconcile it with myself, they wouldn't be hanging out with him and doing all that stuff if they wanted to get away! Haha

i have been wondering about this for a while now. My horse has his ears back a good majority of the time. A lot of the time there are just plain pointed backwards, sometimes they are flat back. When they are flat back I back him up quickly and he always respects me after that and keeps them forward. But when he is playing or running or anything they are kind of flat back. And even when I trot him they are still just pointed back. Is there a problem with that? Im so confused on ear language.

That is pretty darn cool.

Sonny: Generally, a horse that just has his ears pointed toward the back with a level topline and soft eye is an attentive horse. However, you have to take ear position in combination with all other aspects of the horse to know what it means. Rear facing ears on a horse with it's head up, nostrils flared, and eyes wide is generally a horse that is scared of either the rider or something behind him. Same ears with a lowered head and bared teeth is aggression. Some horses do completely flatten their ears when they are concentrating: you will most often see it on cutting horses or reining horses and sometimes on horses when they run.

Okay that was kind of cool but seriously have none of you ever been to a circus? That man is a hell of an animal trainer but it's nothing that hasn't been done under a circus tent for a hundred years.

Here is a link to pictures of people that were also fine animal trainers.

Yes, I actually have seen his real performance on Internet before. I wish he'd have a performance in my area!

My horses keep ears back quite often, but they are listening. Usually, it's very obvious if they are just attentive or pissed - like if someone tailgates my qh her ears go completely flat and kinda different angle than when she just listens.

I've been in circus plenty of times (BTW american one was worse then european and asian), and I must say really good animal trainers are very rare plus I havn't seen any trainer working with the animals outside in free space. It's much easier to control and train the animal in confined space. And I highly doubt all those circus animals will do ANYTHING for the trainer if taken outside.

But even besides the training such level of riding (balance, seat, legs) is just incredible.

C'mon, Kevin, you have to agree this person is extemely talented.

I don't know that I would call this Natural horsemanship. Just because a person is riding without a saddle or bridle doesn't make it natural horsemanship. Elephants are ridden bridleless but thier training is not really gentle or kind by our standards.
