This little documentary is well worth watching for anyone who's interested in horses, agriculture, history and sustainability. It was made quite a while ago and sadly some of the skills demonstrated, which have been learnt and perfected over the last 2 or 3 thousand years, are now in danger of dying out altogether. The presenter originally worked with the horses as part of a reality TV programme called "In at the Deep End" where he had to learn a trade really quickly - he was so enthralled with the whole idea of farming with horses that he took a year's sabbatical to learn more about it and eventually started up his own organic horse-powered farm. You, too, will be transported to a different world when you watch it. The only complaint I have is that the DVD is in European PAL format (which isn't mentioned on the info on Amazon's website), so if you don't have a player that can handle PAL, you'll have to watch it on your PC instead. I bought a cable and hooked my laptop up to my TV - where there's a will there's a way!!
