Nature: Equus - Story of the Horse
Nature Equus traces the revolutionizing animal-human partnership with anthropologist Niobe Thompson, who treks around the world in search of the moment when humans first mounted their steeds and explains how the relationship between humans and horses has evolved in today’s modern world.
Discover the habits of these majestic animals and their unique biological makeup, which made them a perfect fit for our ancestors. Ride along with the world’s last nomadic tribes, who view the horse not just as an animal, but a means of survival. Witness the return of horses to the wild as humankind preserves the hardest-working animal partners we’ve ever had. An exhilarating two-part series filmed in Montana, Kentucky, Canada, Mongolia, Saudi Arabia, Siberia, and Sable Island, Nova Scotia.
