Guy is a proud Queenslander that has taken Australia to the World through his horsemanship, Bush Poetry and double handed stockwhip mastery, to show what his country is about with his 4 Australian bred horses by his side. Guy and his team have made major waves in the USA, Canada and Australia and because of this is now Headlining events as a highly sought-after educator and performer at the major Equine Expos with him and the Team packing 5,000+ seat arenas to watch their demos on what it is to be a Lifetime Horseman and a proud Australian Stockman.

Guy McLean and his team have been involved in a history making event when they performed at Central Park, NY in 2014, as this was the first time in 30 years, horses have competed and performed in this iconic park and we also believe Guy’s team were the first Australian Stock Horses to set foot on those hallowed grounds.

With all these achievements under his belt Guy wants to continue to share what a boy from a small country town can achieve with passion and desire.
