Tom Roberts was an Australian horseman ahead of his time. He dedicated his lifetime to find out how horses learn and in turn, was able to share his knowledge about a more sympathetic way to train.
This book is in two parts, the first part, written by Nicki Stuart (an ex-ABC Landline reporter), provides insights into how Tom influenced people’s lives with horses. This section contains many quotes from people who personally knew Tom.
In the second part, Dr Andrew McLean (winner of the highest science award in Australia the 'Eureka Prize for Science') gives readers an understanding of why Tom’s methods worked with horses, and compare with our current day knowledge about horse training theories.
Proceeds from the sale of this book will go towards continuing the educational opportunities for horse owners, including film conservation, audio books and preservation of donated items through the non-profit organisation, Horse SA.
