The Wild Horses That Beat Extinction

August 10, 2019


These wild horses can fight and run but
according to Claudia that isn’t really why they’re still here.
For them, survival is about working together, about social life. Perhaps
that’s why they accept Claudia almost like one of the herd. Left to themselves, horses build a community and just like for us, it’s the community that protects them. “I try to help them have a more natural
life. Horses do not need to be ridden, you know. They don’t need us. They are
independent; happy to be independent.” This amazing spectacle – truly wild horses
living without humans – it’s like a vision from the past with a message about
horses today… It turns out, speed and power aren’t so important as the quality they share with us – a social mind.

  1. Beautiful video but very patronising. I would rather have more information on the endangered status of the species please 1. We know horses can survive just fine without humans. Horses that escape European colonisers in North America became wild again. 2. This horse species survival depends a lot more on habitat conservation and breeding programs than they do good old teamwork. 3. “ it turns out speed and power aren’t so important as the quality they share with us” yeah that is exactly why ancient people domesticated horses 9000 years ago, for quality relationships

  2. This makes me even more curious to watch the episode when it airs. And for the people saying "It's too short", this video is probably a preview for the episode. 😧

  3. They look more like dun zebras than what I think of as a horse. I suppose it's for the same reason a wolf looks nothing like shih tzu, thousands of years of selective breeding.

  4. Give it a rest the rocks are nearly as smart as the horses. If they were smaller and slower being in a herd would help them very little.

  5. Spend some time at http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/ for more information about other endangered species and the conservation attempts to save them.
