Ken is renowned for his skill working with horses of all levels and disciplines and is a much-loved favourite among the equine community. Apart from his skill in turning out lovely riding horses and problem solving difficult cases, Ken was also the winning trainer of Equitana’s “Way of the Horse” contest in 2013, showing an amazing depth of understanding and patience with his young, unhanded horse.
The series, titled The Horseman of Oz, is not all centred on horse training however, but will also cover other aspects of horse care. Ken delivers sessions on foal handling, weaning and halter starting, liberty training, starting young horses under saddle, float loading and lots of other useful riding and handling advice. He will be joined by saddler, Peter Brophy, in the saddle fit segment and in several sessions by Veterinarian Specialist, Dr Bill Roughan – who has even performed a gelding and hernia operation live on the show!
Ken says he feels honoured to be on the Horseman of Oz show.
“We all had a wonderful time filming and I hope everyone enjoys watching the series as much as we enjoyed making it”
Dr Bill (also one of our expert Blogging Panel) had a great time helping with the series too and reported that “Animals had all read their lines beforehand and handled the pressure well – even Ken! – and I am looking forward to a few more laughs in future filming”
