NATURE | Horse and Rider | Rio’s Big Polo Match | PBS

Duration: 06:05

www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod...

Adam Snow plays his horse Rio in a Florida polo tournament -- what he calls “the Mecca of polo.” After some earlier soreness, Rio seems to have healed, and now the pressure is on before the big match.

The teaming of horse and rider is arguably the most sophisticated and intriguing example of human-animal cooperation. NATURE explores and illuminates this absorbing phenomenon in “Horse and Rider,” airing on PBS Sunday, August 3 at 8 p.m. (check local listings). “Horse and Rider” is part of the 26th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York for PBS. Major support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc., Toyota, SC Johnson, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. For more information, visit www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod...
