What is better than a good looking horse? A good looking cowboy with that horse!
"Mantracker" is a Canadian t.v. show which features Terry Grant (aka Mantracker) who is a real life search and rescue rider from Alberta. He is paired with a 'sidekick' who knows the basic lay of the land. Its up to Mantracker and his sidekick to find and 'catch' two people known as the 'prey'.
The prey are given a map, compass , 36 hours, whatever they choose to pack for provisions and a head start to make their way to the finish line (approximately 40 km away) by whatever means they can. Mantracker and his sidekick have their horses and their know how. A flare goes off and that is the prey's cue to run and Mantracker's only clue as to the whereabouts of the start. Once he finds the start he tracks the prey.
One thing that I find very interesting about this is there is no prize other than the glory of being able to evade Mantracker. (if you're lucky)
Mantracker films all over Canada, which is why he has different sidekicks. This video is from the episode filmed in Saskatchewan (southern Saskatchewan, I live in central Saskatchewan which does NOT look like this - unfortunately!) One of my fav moments from this episode comes around a minute in (its in regard to the prey's search for water)
