Leisure Ride were delighted to install the training pen and Trojan Jump Turf surface for ‘Horse Whisperer’ Michael Peace.
Michael is a specialist trainer of young and problem horses. His Career began 29 years ago as an apprentice jockey in Newmarket and despite being from a non-horse background has always been fascinated by the psychology of these wonderfully complex creatures.
After many years working professionally with several different types, breeds and disciplines around the world, Michael’s affinity for young and problem horses has lead him naturally to develop his own unique and very effective approach which he calls Think Equus.
His three successful books have been distributed around the world and translated into many different languages and his work with top professional trainers, riders and organisations such as The Blue Cross, Metropolitan Mounted Police, RSPCA, World Equine Welfare, Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre, British Equestrian Trade Association to name but a few demonstrates a truly rich and varied career to date.
