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 compare with our current day knowledge about horse training theories.
