The Animal Health Trust.

Re-enforcing the message within the best selling book Brain, Pain, or Training, Sue provided an insight into the critical research being carried out by the Animal Health Trust, authored by world renowned vet, Doctor Sue Dyson.

While the research continues on, it is now clear that by using these techniques, coupled with Sue Palmer's powerful book Brain, Pain, or Training, any responsible horse owner can now be guided in understanding their horse's behaviour and what drives it.
