Strictly Classified : Insights into the Trainer's Mind Hardback



Strictly Classified offers readers a unique insight into the workings of a horseman's mind, notably in relation to their understanding of a racehorse's psyche, emotions and character.

Calling from his training in psychotherapy and other disciplines, Marten Julian sheds light on how those who work with horses try to unravel the innermost workings of a horse's mind.

He has asked many of the world's top trainers and handlers how they identify and relate to a horse's individual personality and thereby encourage it to realise its full potential.

Reference is made to how they address the potential effect of a racehorse's formative years, their integration into a yard, their emotional range of experiences, their spirit, their will to win and their end days.

This is a book specifically about horse people, how they respond to a horse's character and psychological disposition and it is illustrated with examples of a few well-known horses with which they have been involved.
