Brandon was dragged by a horse

Episode 65,  Nov 20, 2020, 08:00 AM

Brandon spent 17 years working as an equestrian stuntman. But before starting with the stunt company, he had no experience working with horses at all. And his first “stunt ride” was quite a surprise.

Brandon spent 17 years working as an equestrian stuntman. But he didn’t grow up on a farm, and he didn’t spend his youth around horses. Back then, he was more interested in playing hockey.

But he and his family did enjoy visiting Renaissance Fairs, and he met the right person at the right time. He got the opportunity to start learning how to be a stuntman – first working on the ground as a  “squire”, then later helping to train the horses, and eventually to work as a stunt rider.

But his very first “stunt riding” experience was not what he expected.
