gaited horsemanship dvd

Has anyone tried Clinton Andersons 'Gaited Horsemanship' dvd? I was thinking of purchasing it. If you it worth it and does it include the ground work?

It is just ok. It includes SOME of the groundwork but not all. I think it's a little sketchy. He does not differentiate between gaited and non gaited. He says the training should all be the same. He took 2 hot headed TWH mares and really did turn them around. I think you'd be better off with the Riding With Confidence series or just his groundwork DVD. I LOVE Clinton ANderson, but I got this DVD after I got the Riding With Confidence one thinking it might have something different to address my Gaited horses...I was disappointed and it would've left me confused had I not viewed the other one. Hope my rambling makes sense! A lot of times people will post YouTUbe videos of them doing Clinton Anderson techniques...that might be something to look into and cheaper!

Groundwork is the same for any breed or mix breed.

Except for lunging a gaited horse; they cannot turn as tight as a walk/trot horse. Their shoulders aren't built for that --- those shoulders are built for making long sweeping strides.

Clinton Anderson's expertise is in walk/trot horse industry and he needs to stay there. IMO, his new DVD is all about the money.

If you want to learn from the best regarding gaited horses, look at Liz Graves' web site.

Gaited Horse Training Video Rentals at GiddyUpFlix

GiddyUpFlix has lots of gaited horse training DVDs to choose from to rent. I particularly have preferred David Lichman, Larry Whitesell and Brenda Imus. They have some new ones by Jennifer Bauer who trained under Larry Whitesell too.

There plans start at $9+ dollars a month for unlimited monthy rentals. Lots more affordable than buying the DVDs and you can keep them as long as you want. I've really enjoyed their service so far and they have an excellent selection of all kinds of riding DVDs.

I have tried a lot of them and here is my opinion:
Clinton Anderson - not so much about gaiting and you are better off with his complete training DVDs if you are going to use his methods
Brenda Imus - in a word, yuck
Larry Whitesell - my guru and although he is not so much about gaiting either in some ways, he is about getting your horse collected so she offers her gait. Wonderful approach.
Liz Grave - love her too - she is delightful to watch, so positive and careful with the horses.
David Lichman - if you are obsessed with footfalls this is the guy for you. I find it kind of boring

Larry Whitesell dvd's gets my vote

Larry Whitesell and Jennifer Bauer have excellent DVDs! I have been to several of their clinics. Their hospitality is unmatched and they reoriented my view of how to ride gaited horses. I can't say enough about how far they moved me from "traditional" gaited horse riding to a more "classical" style. My horses have been the real benificeries of their teaching.
