Episode 8: Man vs. Woman vs. Beast

California & Spain

Horses regularly handled or ridden by male equestrians seem to avoid getting caught in the field more often than those not handled by males. But under saddle, they appear to fight the reins less—an indication they might be more compliant, according to equine behavior researchers.

“That doesn’t mean men are better or worse equestrians than women, researchers said. But what it does mean is horses recognize sex differences in humans and change their behavior accordingly—possibly due to past experiences they’ve had with male and female handlers,” said Kate Fenner, PhD, of the Sydney School of Veterinary Science at the University of Sydney, in Australia.

From an outsider point of view, “All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” The poet calls men and women merely players because they do not choose their roles themselves. They are merely puppets in the hands of God. Their roles are allotted to them and they can not oppose their roles.

After photographing many “wild events” with horses, it just feel that this metaphor is timely.
