This is the lead i bought that i'm using to do my training at 14.95$, im sure it's not the best and not better than Clinton Anderson's leads but it works for me :)

You can manage with those leads. Once you have become accustomed to the weight of a good lead line you will hate the feel of the lighteweight cheap ones. I have two heavy ones, and love them, but my 15 ft got a bit abraided by baling twine loop I tied to. I shall have to tape off the torn spot.

Oh Yes!

I used the generic brand for a year. They were OK. Then I used my wife's CA Halter, Lead, and Stick and they are wayyyyy better.
The Halter is a nice stiff rope (easy to put on) with 5 nose knots instead of 3 or none that most rope halters have.
The lead rope is weighted and moves and flexes smoothly without tangling.
The stick and string are used together and individually for a variety of exercises. They are the right length and combination for following the CA method.
You don't have to use his stuff but it is sooo much easier.
I use wal-mart brand tools on my car. A mechanic uses snap-on tools.
They both work, but his fit better, last longer, and are more ergonomic to use.
If you could do one lesson with a set of CA tools you wouldn't be able to get your wallet out fast enough.

This is what I use with my Clinton Anderson book and I've loved all of it.

12' Lead with Twist Snap Soft Rope Halter for Parelli Training Many Colors | eBay

I also found a carrot stick or handy stick or whatever he calls it on ebay for $25. If I were to purchase that over again, I'd go with the parelli style carrot stick over the one I bought, because although they are both made of fiberglass, the one I have is more flexible, and I like the rigidity and strength of the carrot stick better. However, I use it daily and still love it and it comes in purple which matches all my other stuff

Even Clinton himself says you DON'T need his stuff, but does recommend them because they have been designed with his methods in mind.

I hand tie my own halters and buy 1/2 inch yachting rope in whatever length I need.

I agree with you all about $65 being way too much. I looked this up on the internet a few months ago and found this website:Half Circle Ranch, For All of your Natural Horsemanship Needs The stuff is the same quality for a whole lot cheaper! They don't appear to be knock-offs.
