The Truth about Horses (Australian Title)

ISBN: 9780958109833

Author: Dr Andrew McLean

Format: Paperback

Price: AUD $59.95

International best seller and a distillation of Andrew McLean's PhD thesis. This is a book that reveals the huge potential offered by the use of behavioural scinces in training horses. Adopting these principals dramaticaly increases the number of horses that are able to effectively learn what we intend to teach them no matter what the discipline.

The book begins by examining our complex historical interaction with the horse explaning our largely misplaced expectations of it's mentality and their dire consequences. The Truth About Horses  explains how we can improve the trained horse's welfare by constructing a much clearer training model.

Written in a narrative style this book details in-hand and under-saddle training as well as re-training. The chapter on conflict behaviour represents the first time that a scientificaly valid explanation of problem behaviours in horses has been written for the understanding of the general public.
