DR. ROBERT MILLER

Natural Horsemanship, Horse Behavior
and Imprint Training - His DVDs and Books


Dr. Robert M. Miller is a world renowned speaker and author on Horse Behavior and Natural Horsemanship. He is also father of the revolutionary foal training technique known as "imprint training".  

In his 30 years as an equine veterinarian, Dr. Miller has always been an innovator. Over the past 25 years, he has become a mentor to natural horsemanship clinicians around the world. His ability to explain how and why the clinicians training techniques are so effective has made him a driving force in the movement towards better, more humane, AND more effective training of horses. 



About Dr. Robert M. Miller

After graduation from Colorado State University, Dr. Miller settled in Thousand Oaks, California, where he founded the Conejo Valley Veterinary Clinic.  Thirty-one years later, he retired as a renowned veterinarian and expert in ethology (the study of animal behavior). Dr. Miller has visited every continent giving lectures to colleges, conventions for animal groups, horse organizations, breed associations and other clients.   He has received numerous professional awards for his involvement with equine associations, production of videotapes, and lecturing.  He has authored several books, and his acute sense of humor and love of cartoons have provided seven veterinary cartoon books.

Dr. Miller has been on the editorial  staff of  Veterinary Medicine, Modern Veterinary Practice, Veterinary Forum, and Western Horseman and other horse magazines.  He is internationally known for his lectures and seminars. In 2004  Dr. Miller was named to the Hall of Fame by Western States Horse Expo.

Dr. Miller retired from his veterinary practice in 1987 in order to devote his full time to the teaching of equine behavior and to support the revolution in horsemanship that began in the Western United States in the late 20th Century and is now a worldwide phenomenon.  He is best known for his scientifically based system of training newborn foals.  Called imprint training, if done correctly, it is the fastest, and most profound method of permanently shaping a horse's responses and attitude.  Imprint training is now in use all over the world.
