What People Are Saying About Jonathan
From Equine Professionals 

“I have a very high opinion of Jonathan Field and have nothing but praise for him. He is a gentleman, an excellent horseman, an articulate teacher, and just a nice guy.”

Robert M. Miller, DVM, Thousand Oaks, California, USA Award-winning author, lecturer, expert in animal behavior, developer of internationally-acclaimed scientific-based system of training newborn foals


“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jonathan on different occasions. He took one of my jumping clinics, which shows that he’s a very serious student! Obviously jumping was a little foreign to him, but because he’s such a great horseman, he totally understood the concept — which showed to me how good a horseman he is. I made a point of watching Jonathan at the Mane Event; he’s a tremendous speaker and he relates his knowledge to the crowd very well. Jonathan is very creative and determined to pass on the right message — his general approach to horsemanship is very unique, in my opinion, but also very correct. What impressed me the most is how he’s able to portray what he knows and what he’s learned over the years, and he completely relates that to the crowd. His performance was incredible; not only was it technically interesting, it was visually spectacular. I think Jonathan Field is a tremendous horseman and a tremendous teacher, and I have the utmost respect for him.”

“Throughout my 30 years in the movie industry, I have seen an incredible number of horse trainers. But I must say that Jonathan Field is the most natural and connected person to horses that I’ve ever seen in my life. His training techniques will make your horse love you and look forward to being with you. Jonathan’s values, compassion and integrity carry over to every aspect of his life, including how he relates to his family, friends and clients.”

Brian Leight, Duncan, British Columbia, Canada Bloodstock agent, horseman, one of the top Thoroughbred farm managers in the country


“I think Jonathan’s horsemanship and integrity are tops. He’s been very helpful in getting my students to understand the techniques and importance of basic horsemanship and how that helps them and their horses excel. Above and beyond that, what Jonathan teaches has propelled my students to become much better jump riders. I love Jonathan!”

“I had the privilege to watch you perform and do several presentations. I have been in the horse world all of my life and watched a lot of great horsemen, but I have to say I have never been more impressed. The bond and trust you have with your horses is just incredible. I admire how you are always trying to explore new ways and learn about all the different disciplines. You are truly an inspiration.”
