"We can never really know what it is to be a horse. Our best hope is to be as objective as possible and to balance our emotional attachment to the horse with our tradition of rational enquiry. To do this we need to redefine the way that we think about the horse using the sciences of behaviour." - Andrew McLean.
The training theory described in 'The Truth about Horses' represents a paradigm shift in the approach to training horses. The method Andrew McLean sets out has evolved through a unique combination of scientific research and practical, professional horse training, thoroughly tested over many years at the Australian Equine Behoviour Centre - one of the largest horse training facilities in Australia. In an era that is increasingly conscious of the ethics of animal training, this book will have a far-reaching and positive impact on the welfare of horses all around the world.
This book is for anyone who has ever wished they understood their horse better, or wondered why their horse behaves the way it does. It will be of enormous benefit to anyone involved with the performance or breeding of horses including serious competiitve riders, trainers, breeders, and equine veterinarians.
