Guy McLean, horseman, is back to thrill
AUDIENCES have been told to expect the unexpected of world class horsemanship when Guy McLean gallops into the Mossman Showgrounds arena.
An internationally renowned Australian horseman and entertainer who splits his time between Australia and America, McLean will be bringing his spectacular show to Mossman. McLean said he was excited. “I did the Mossman Show a few times, and it was just a wonderful little community show,” he said.
“I have done some big shows in America where you are famous before you get there but for a show like this you are performing in front of people who have never seen you perform before so you have to be on top of your game.
“I will be riding in after another act so you really have to prove yourself.”
Through his shows McLean hopes to inspire the next generation.
“After shows in America I have kids come up to me and say they want to be stockmen now because of the show, so I think we need to come back home so we have Australian kids saying they want to be stockmen and work with cattle,” McLean said.
He is sure to wow crowds with his performance, including one of his most well-known signature moves.
“One that I do is something I created where I lie down a gelding call Teddy who used to be very insecure.
“I get him to lie down on the ground and the other three horses will then go over him,” he said.
“It just shows all it takes is someone to believe in you and you can do amazing things.”
That is something McLean tries to leave the audience believing, devoting a lot of his time to encouraging young children to believe in themselves.
McLean said that as a child he had also suffered from shyness.
“I think people walk away from the equine show wanting to somehow be better people,” he said.
“Expect things you have never seen before from a boy who grew up loving his country and wanting to take it to the rest of the world.”
