Horseman, performer, and poet Guy McLean is originally from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, but moved to what became his parents’ Susan River Homestead Holiday Ranch. There, this shy young boy grew up, devoted to horses and developing his horsemanship skills and deep love for the Bush country.
Named official Ambassador of the Outback, Guy has wowed audiences with his performances of horsemanship, Bush poetry, and whip cracking since 1999. He strives to keep the traditions of the Bush and the Aussie stockman alive.
In 2005, Guy was the inaugural winner of Equitana’s “Way of the Horse” young horse-starting competition. It was the methods he learned in the Queensland Bush that brought him victory.
Guy and his talented horses have performed for over a million people and achieved worldwide acclaim. He is referred to by his fans and Australian dignitaries as a “national treasure” and “living legend.” Although this humble Australian still blushes at such remarks, it is these kind words and his remarkable relationship with his horses that inspire him to succeed and continue to spread his message.
Now an international sensation, Guy makes his base in the United States… although his beloved homeland of Australia is where his heart resides.
