Jonathan Field

Horseman rides to ‘rescue’ of BlackBerry

Abbotsford horseman Jonathan Field was recently featured in two BlackBerry commercials as part of the company’s “Love What You Do” campaign to promote their smartphones.

These action-packed commercials show the unique relationship Jonathan has with his horses, and how the BlackBerry smartphone perfectly fits his fast-paced life as a teacher, trainer, and performer.

Field was training a horse for one of Blackberry’s top lawyers and without realizing who she was, he pulled out his blackberry bold and began showing her all of the great features.

“I had no idea who she was at the time,” said Field.

The ideas started rolling, and later that year Field was host to a crew of cameramen, sound operators, directors, editors and producers outside Mission in early November.

“It was the only two days of sunshine we had that entire month — talk about good luck,” said Field.

Field used his top performance horses for the commercial, displaying athletic skills in addition to the heartfelt communication Field has with his horses. The BlackBerry corporate management was thrilled with what they saw.

The 30 second commercial is currently available for viewing at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hMYeCdQKyE and the 75 second version at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D41kep_nUbk

A highly acclaimed horse trainer and clinician, Field travels extensively around Canada and the United States teaching people and horses. He also performs with his top horses in expositions such as the Mane Event in Red Deer, Alberta and Chilliwack, British Columbia; Western States Horse Expo in Sacramento, California; and the Equine Affaire in Pomona, California.

Jonathan lives with his wife Angie and their two boys, Weston and Mason, at their ranches in Abbotsford and Merritt.
