Wahl Walkabout Tour

So, I am going to the Wahl Walkabout Tour this weekend, and I was just wondering how much $$$ I should bring. I'm kind of a spendaholic, especially in high pressure situations like these.

Has anyone here been to one of the Tours? What did you think of it?

I've never been to a walk about tour, but I have seen Clinton Anderson at a regular horse expo. If you don't want to spend a lot of money don't take any Take home the knowledge and leave all the stuff. His rope halters are way to expensive for me and theres nothing special about them.
Have fun, wish I could go

LOL... I left the credit cards and check book at home!!!

I got really into the John Lyons clinic I went to at a horse expo till I saw the price tags!!!

Yu can get SO much stuff...in fact almost Identical stuff HALF price elsewhere!

I scribbled notes the whole time and bought nothing!

(actually I spent $80 on 2 full leather bridles with reins and bits)
but that was at a consignment booth..they were used.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Oh no, I know about the markup on all the "Special" equipment. Hah, dad won't even let us use a rope halter(not that I mind) unless the poll strap is covered. I think the only piece of C.A. Namebrand equipment I would buy would be another lunge rope, if the snap is the same as the one my sister bought last year. That is my favorite lunge rope.

For the people who have been there, are there many knick-knack dealers? That is what I get suckered into.

I am a C.A. Fan, I will admit. I am not a cultish follower, but I have to give the man some credit. He has great people teaching skills. Watching the Road to the Horse on RFD one time, I saw what I was doing wrong when trying to lunge and could actually had it down the next time I tried.

I love his clarity, and think it will be fun to 'watch him in action'.
