Oregon Field Guide

Wild Horse Trainer

Meet Oregon’s own 85-year-old “horse whisperer”. John Sharp has been “gentling” wild horses for over 60 years. We’ll see how he does it and learn a little bit about the horse sense he’s picked up over the years. He uses a bamboo pole, a rope, and a calm approach to transform wild horses into loyal saddle horses.

First Broadcast: 1999
