Tom Roberts
"Go forward, dear." A horseman's life and legacy.
Written for Horse SA by Dr Andrew McLean and Nicki Stuart

Tom Roberts was an Australian horseman ahead of his time. He dedicated his lifetime to finding 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, provides insights into how Tom influenced people’s lives with horses. In the second part, Dr Andrew McLean gives readers an understanding of why Tom’s methods worked with horses, and compares them 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.
