Matt Laurie
Matt Laurie

Matt has been involved in the education and training of horses internationally and within Australia. His expertise in training and re-educating difficult horses, using the philosophies based on the training principles of long time mentor, Dr Andrew McLean of the Australian Equine Behaviour Centre has given him the skills to break them in and to understand and address problems that others can’t.

Matt took out a trainers’ licence in 2004. His desire to maximize a horse’s ability, coupled with his understanding of the horse’s psychology makes Matt an all-round horseman with a widely respected reputation within the industry.

His hard work and dedication to becoming the best in the business is providing great results already, with many metropolitan winners to his name and his first stakes success when The Travelling Man had an all the way win the Blue Diamond Preview at Caulfield on 26 January 2012.
