Harry Whitney– American “horse psychologist”. His program is entitled “From the Horse’s Point of View”

“Time and time again, riders hire trainers for their horses and come to depend on being told what to do without developing an understanding of how to do it themselves. Harry likes to say he is in the ‘awareness’ business. He is here to teach you how to see what he sees in a horse so you can leave his clinics with a clear understanding of how to develop your relationship with your horse. Harry is particular, for your sake and the sake of the horse. In order to be clear, a person needs to be precise. In order to be precise, you have to understand what you are teaching your horse and why.”
