Andrew Froggatt has special skills as a horse whisperer: He can train the wildest horse and he's worked with thousands of horses over the years, from wild, untouched horses, pony club ponies, riding for the disabled horses, through to top level show horses, jumpers and racehorses, especially those that don't like the starting gate.
Over time, Andrew has developed a system that consistently works to fix problems and bring out the very best in all horses. He is a master at building relationships, establishing trust, respect and creating the right environment, turning rogues into winners. But he also has the skill to relate what he is doing to make it relevant and easy to understand for everyone.
This book tells the stories of several horses Andrew has worked with and illustrates how well he understands them and can get them on-side.
He also works with people using the same approaches, and he has worked with troubled youth, NZ Army, Sport and Recreation NZ on their coach accelerator programme and with large corporates like NZ Post.
Andrew Froggatt graduated from the prestigious Marcus Oldham College in Melbourne with an Advanced Certificate in Horse Business Management, later starting a business in New Zealand, 'Talking Horses', and for the last 20 years has worked with well over 6000 horses. He lives in beautiful Queenstown with his partner Sam Glazebrook, and together they run their business 'Lead the Way'. www.lead-the-way.co.nz
