I'm also among the very jealous here! My husband and I just went to his show in Tampa. He's not perfect, but I think he is one of the best out there. What he teaches makes sense and we have been able to apply his techniques to many situations. I hate it when people think that he is all about groundwork. He's really about the whole package - establishing respect with the groundwork, but carrying that over into your riding.

I have a hard time believing he would leave spur marks on a horse, he doesn't really wear them on other people's horses, I thought? He could have though. I would take this opportunity and fly with it. His methods really work and he explains them in such a way that a non horse trainer can understand and apply them to their horse. Good luck! Im green with envy ;p I sooooo thought about going and putting the deposit on a credit card, lol

As far as what you need to know, I would definitely get the halter and stick/string now and work on some of the basic ground work, so when you go, he can show you how to get your horse even lighter, instead of trying to get it started. Yay! Grats again!

Thanks folks. I was able to borrow the fundamental series, and currently working the steps on a new semi-problem horse someone has. (My horse(s) are out of commission, got the horsey flu). So I'm using this one as a gunea pig (with owners permission, of course).

The horse isn't bad, just generally pushy and spoiled (they came to me saying they had a problem with her bucking a lot under saddle and spooking). Seemed like a good candidate, and she's come along way in the last 3 days (today was the third). I was thinking of posting a thread documenting her progress with it, kinda like a review of it, but with application?

I have had to modify things a bit with a lunge whip since my string left the face of the planet, but I'm getting a new one. I'm not against using CA tools, I just don't like that his name is plastered on everything. I am more than willing to go, for sure. Just wondering about first hand experiences, etc... So I know more of what to expect. I'm always interested in learning new things, and getting my horse surrounded by experiences (never hurts).

Thanks again! The more the merrier!
