Jake Nodar’s #Blessed Life: Horse Training and Entertaining
By Susan Friedland
Three years ago, a bearded man in a nude leotard and platinum blond Cleopatra wig high-kicked, twirled and did the splits to a Sia song in his bedroom with a white miniature horse joining in the dance. The video clip of Jake Nodar and Tyrion — Jake’s white “unicorn” — went viral, airing on both TMZ and Fox News, and later a Danish company used it in an internet commercial.
Whether dressing in formal wear or a crazy outfit, Jake’s social media presence is quirky, fun and meant to put a smile on his followers’ faces.
Jake, a professional horse trainer from Maryland, successfully balances careers as both an entertainer and horseman. He has starred on several reality television shows over the last decade, ranging from Discovery Channel’s “Naked and Afraid” series and “Out of the Wild: The Alaska Experiment” to the History Channel’s “Full Metal Jousting,” a show that resurrected lance-wielding knights on horseback. He also recently directed, choreographed and danced in Grammy-winning artist Zac Brown’s music video “Swayze,” which playfully gives a nod to 1980s workout videos.
