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 (Mind Over Miller), Modern Veterinary Practice, Veterinary Forum, and Western Horseman and other horse magazines. He is internationally known for his lectures and seminars.
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.
In 2004 Dr. Miller was named to the Hall of Fame by Western States Horse Expo. http://www.horsexpo.com/html/abouthall.html

Our apologies, but the Webmaster is not qualified to answer equine behavior questions.
