This program explores some historical and modern day work roles for horses. Four different horses are observed working with their handlers. The programs look at the physical and mental characteristics of horses that help them in their work and the way handlers value their horses and communicate with them.

The program also explains and demonstrates some basic safety rules that should be observed when around horses.
The lives of working animals are explored in these two episodes. Programs highlight the special features of animals that can make them more suited to certain tasks than people or machines and that, like all good working relationships, these ones are based on clear communication and mutual respect.
