The Edge: Bruce Anderson - Natural Humanship Trailer

The Edge explores the work of Bruce Anderson, native of Trinidad and Tobago, and the programs that he has created over a lifetime of work with horses and people. Nature’s View, his system of Natural Humanship, involves work with horses that includes a step by step process that can be applied to a variety of situations and circumstances, including equine training, equine assisted learning and therapy, law enforcement training, management and educational workshops and individual self improvement sessions. Anderson also explores environmental and societal issues facing the world today and gives a solution of the AlphA mindset through his work using the Nature’s View system. Far from being a doomsday prophet, Anderson provides an alternative philosophy of "People Helping Horses: Horses Helping People” while addressing human needs for basic survival through environmental forces.
The Edge takes a look at Anderson’s life travels, from the Caribbean islands through England and Canada, finally landing in the Southeastern United States, providing vignettes into his experiences with horses along the way. The film also delves into his work in the Abacos with Milanne Rehor and Nunki, the last horse in the line of Spanish Colonials descending from the breed brought to the New World by Christopher Columbus. Anderson’s work with Wild Horses of Abaco has spanned 2014 through the present and will continue through cloning efforts in order to restore the breed on the current island Preserve. Filmed on location in Trinidad, the Bahamas and the US, the documentary will feature a variety of 4K footage, including equine round pen work in the US, awe-inspiring horses of all breed, live action underwater and cliff footage in the Caribbean and life-changing testimonials from former and current clients. The film concludes with a call to action that should not be ignored: the further we as humans move toward the edge of climate change, societal crises, and personal dilemmas through mental imbalance, the more we must acknowledge our basic needs for survival…and do something to change mindsets. Enter the horse.
