I am sure you'll get some interesting response here. He has been discussed ad nauseum, so you can get even more thoughts on him by doing a search of past threads.

We attended one of his two-day events a few years ago. He is entertaining and over the years I have picked up some very useful information from him. But I have gotten good and helpful info from other trainers also.
I'm sure you will gain from going. Keep an open mind. And have a good time!!!

I went to two of his tours. I like him, but, like most trainers, I don't agree 100% of some parts of his method. However he gets the job done, the horses I've seen him deal with at the tours came in the arena in a fidgety, almost ready to have a heart attack manner. The 2nd day of the tour those same horses came into the arena with a cocked leg, head down, and relaxed manner.

Big differences in the horses, definitely worth looking into.

I like him. He makes things very simple and easy to understand, for both horse and human. We're going to his tour in July. I'll tell you how it is! :)

Can't stand him. Never could and after his hateful attitude about the horse that died at his place, and in reading about his "training", I'd rather have my skin ripped off by catfish pliers than ever see him.

I've been to his walkabout tour last year. I learned a lot and it was a great experience! He makes it fun and easy to understand, and his method really does work. Like said above, there are a few things I don't 100% agree with, (like the excessive lateral flexing without teaching the horse to follow his nose) but ultimately, in my opinion, he's great.
