Mechanics and puppetry of full-size horse puppets

Some time ago I posted about the most life-like animal puppet I've ever seen: the horses from the play War Horse.

In this TED talk, creators Basil Jones and Adrian Kohler of Handspring Puppet Company explain how they created these astonishing full-sized horse puppets. They also provide a demonstration of how the puppets and puppeteers work together.
