Andrew McLean Clinic - Canada

I hope I have this in the right forum.

So Andrew McLean is in Canada to Speak at the Equine Education Conference in January.

We have been lucky enough to get him out to the East Kootenays for a 2 day clinic on the 24th and 25th. Day one of the clinic is broken up into lecture with coffee brake and demonstration with 4-5 horse and rider/ handler combinations of various levels and issues. With day two consisting of lessons, 8 private or a mix of group and private depending on demand. Anyone interested in this clinic please feel free to send me a PM. Below is Andrew's Bio

PhD (Equine cognition and learning), BSc (Zoology), Dip Ed
Winner of the highest Australian Science award, the Eureka Prize for Science, Andrew McLean developed and manages the Australian Equine Behaviour Centre, the most internationally recognised horse training and behaviour modification centre in Australia.

Andrew McLean holds a PhD in equine cognition and learning, has been an accredited horse riding coach for over 25 years and has written top-selling books and numerous peer reviewed journal articles.
A past winner of the Gawler CCI***, he has also represented Australia in Horse Trials, competed at state and national events in FEI level dressage and eventing and has also showjumped to Grand Prix level.

In great demand as a trainer, coach and speaker, Dr McLean currently conducts lecture demonstrations at universities and conferences around the world. He teaches throughout Australia, Europe, South Africa, USA, Canada and New Zealand. Andrew continues to coach riders and National Federations on the optimal use of learning theory for improved welfare of the trained horse as well as improved performance.

Delivering a lecture/demonstration at the Global Dressage Forum in October 2006 for which he was voted best new presenter (Topic: "Training principles that arise from learning theory") and subsequently asked to return in 2008 (Topic: "Learned helplessness in the competition horse"). He returns again in 2011 showing how higher dressage has it origins in the basic responses with Imke Bartels and Warwick McLean and a session showing the amazing tool of overshadowing. Conducting an interactive presentation in the Netherlands for elite dressage coaches under the auspices of the Dutch Dressage Federation on the application of learning theory to dressage for improved welfare and performance.

2011's Guest coach at the British Horse Society's Spring horse convention, Andrew received nothing but positive accloades in the BHS press for his presentations and demonstrations with his son, Warwick.
Andrew was invited to re-train the Belgian Mounted Police in 2011 in a 5-day clinic to embed equitation science in their training after some convincing demonstrations with aggressive and fearful horses in May, 2011.
