Have you been on his web page?
Yeah some of his older videos are terrible quality but he has a new camera so is getting better. Also in his older ones the dogs barking really annoyed me haha just couldn't hear anything else!

Yeah, the guy has to get a fluffy cover to cut down wind interference on his microphone or something.

What I also appreciate about him is the time he puts in at the rescue to get the horses to where they can be rehomed.

I've had two horses - one that I still own - that have needed it to the point that both were one step away from a slaughter yard. They both got hit once really hard and never needed it again - for my old mare that was now 19 years ago and she has never put a foot wrong since even though we do bitch at each other occasionally!!!
A friend of mine has a saying..."If you have to ask more than once...you didn't ask firmly enough". I guess what he is saying is don't nag but get in and get the job done, once. Basically that is what the lead mare does. She rarely asks more than once. I like David Lee and I think he has some good things to offer. Kind of like politics, training, to me is best done with a mixture of all sides, use what works, have a full tool box and reach into it when you need a different tool. Too many people try to use a wrench as a hammer. You will eventually get the nail into the board, but you may bend the Hell out of it on the way. Right now I am just trying to fill my tool box.

Cheers!
