JONATHAN FIELD - CANADA
2012 ROAD TO THE HORSE COMPETITOR
Jonathan's parents introduced him to horses when he was just a year old and he's been around them ever since. Growing up in the rural community of Bradner, British Columbia, Jonathan spent many evenings and weekends with his family and friends spending time with their horses. At the age of 13, a trip to a cattle branding with his family changed Jonathan's focus, spurring him toward another path with horses. He was now determined to be a cowboy.
For four seasons Jonathan worked at the historic Quilchena Cattle Company, one of the largest operating cattle ranches in Canada. He lived the cowboy life, nestled in a cow camp, riding the range every day, driving cows, branding calves — rain, snow or shine. Each day was spent in the saddle, and a teenaged Jonathan could imagine nothing better. Jonathan has since started hundreds of horses; trailer loaded thousands, including wild and problem horses; and has developed his own horses into the best friends and partners that you see in his demonstrations. He has coached, mentored and shared his knowledge with thousands of people in clinics and presentations.
Jonathan's been the crowd favorite at the Mane Event in both Red Deer and Chilliwack in British Columbia since 2004, and he headlined the 2008,2010 and 2011 Western States Horse Expo in Sacramento, California. He also attracted a record number of horse enthusiasts at the 2009 Western Canada Farm Progress Show in Regina, Saskatchewan. Jonathan recently shot a pilot for a television series and is beginning work on a book that promises to bring his message to even more horse lovers around the world. In addition to being a passionate teacher and gifted presenter, Jonathan is an amazing horseman on a quest to share his knowledge with horse lovers around the world. Join him on his journey and stay forever 'Inspired by Horses'.
