NATURE: Equus: Story of the Horse The relationship between man and his noble steed is almost as old as civilization itself. Ever since the mysterious beginning of our extraordinary partnership, horses helped shape the human world. At the speed of a horse, our ancestors conquered distance and built empires. Together, humans and horses flourished side by side. What makes us so perfect for each other? Why are these huge animals so eager to please? And how have we transformed the wild horse we tamed 6,000 years ago into over 400 specialized breeds today?

Join anthropologist Dr. Niobe Thompson and equine experts on a two-part adventure around the world and a journey back in time to discover the origins of the horse. In a stunning 3D reconstruction, see the earliest member of the horse family rise from a fossil bed and begin a remarkable transformation into the magnificent animal we know today. Discover why horses have 360-degree vision and gallop on a single toe. Explore the science of speed with renowned racehorse trainers. Uncover the emotional intelligence of horses and their deep connection with humans. Encounter extraordinary horse breeds from Saudi Arabia to Kentucky to Siberia, and meet the horses of Sable Island that are truly returning to the wild ways of their ancestors.

Filmed over 18 months across 3 continents, featuring drone and helicopter-mounted RED aerials, extensive Phantom slow-motion footage, and a live-recorded symphonic score.

Review by Lisa on 08/18/22 review stating Scientific and Charming
I recorded this on my DVR so I could show it to my husband, because he loves horses also. I was surprised to see the animation of the horse's early evolution. It is a very well done documentary. If you are a true horse lover, you must see this program. I never realized how much devotion horses have for their humans!

Nature Equus the story of the horse
Review by Jan on 08/18/22 review stating Nature Equus the story of the horse
I have been in the horse industry for about 55 years. Have owned and worked and trained many beautiful loving horses. This documentary is very in depth of horses, their love and heart to give their all to their human. The cinematography was excellent and showed so well how resilient and smart horses are. How they can survive in some of the worst areas and situations. I highly recommend this well demonstrated vitality and the same type of love and loyalty that a dog has. Not what I hear so many time that angers me every time theits just a stupid horse!!!! If this is your thought too you need to see this documentary!

Review by Aven on 04/11/22 review stating Good overview on the evolution
Good overview on the evolution of horses. Ties in well with another PBS video: American Horses. And this review is from someone who has only been on a horse once in 85 years!

The DVD Equus arrived quickly and in time for Christmas. I have, however, never received The Black Americans. Could you please look into that?
