Elsa Sinclair

Elsa Sinclair is a horse trainer from the Pacific Northwest of the United States. From a family of horse trainers she has had a meandering journey through many different styles of horsemanship until she stumbled on a question that needed exportation. What if horses were given a choice? Would they let us ride them? Without force or tools to control and without bribes to lure them? The question led to a project that begged to be documented as it become a film is the journey of one wild mustang off the range, Myrnah, a horse with her own mind, strength, and sense of independence. One trainer, no tools, just body language. The ups and downs, the trials and frustrations, and the beauty and persevering truth connection brings in its wake. This is the adventure that shaped the horse trainer that Elsa Sinclair is today and the theories behind Freedom Based Training.
