That stallion incident was stupid, but we don't know what constraints the film crew put on them - I dare say they all thought that bit would be edited out! The programme would only have contained about 5% of the total film content.
When Top Gear came to our yard to do a programme on the Land Rover Discovery they filmed a mare going in and out of the trailer, but filmed the car pulling an empty trailer round the lanes! Then the presenter made the comment 'You really enjoyed that ride Poppy',. Of course she did- she was loaded on the back, and came straight out of the front!

Watching those eight Amish horses ploughing as a team was absolutely amazing.

Did not think it showed driving and handling horses in a good light at all, and why on earth he was letting a novice driver drive the stallion into the yard how stupid, laughing about it made it even worse. Did find the other bits interesting especially the amish, all their horses looked so well and the ploughing was wonderful to see.
