“I spent many years searching for the Holy Grail of horse training and, after travelling throughout Europe, I found the answer right here in Australia. Equitation science and learning theory allow me to objectively view any interactions between people and horses, identify where any errors may have occurred and, most importantly, provide me with the tools to fix them. The Diploma of Equitation Science has been invaluable. Equitation science has revolutionised the way I train, handle horses and coach riders. No other method is subject to the same scrutiny and peer-review. As a scientist, I appreciate that I now train and coach using proven methods, rather than those founded on hearsay and good marketing. I have been set upon a path from which I will not deviate.”
