I like to pull little pieces from different trainers. I might not like their whole style or training method, but I love pulling out tidbits that will fit my horse or the situation.

My current favorite trainer/clinician is Guy McLean. His method is a little different, but it seems effective and he's so humble and funny. His horses clearly respect him as a leader and even if they occasionally act out at a show he treats it with humor and turns it into a lesson for both the horse and the audience.

I'm a fan of Clinton Anderson's methods. They've worked really well for my boy, but I'm not steadfast to any particular program or trainer. I adjust to fit the horse I'm working with.

In the '70's I learned from John Lyon. It worked for me. However, I think Clinton introduced us to a lot which had not been seen or done previously. Not a fan of Parelli. A little too full of himself for my liking. Some of his methods are ok though and obviously work for different people.

I do think it is good for us to watch and observe as many training methods as possible, glean a little from each and apply what works for us.

In the early days, we only had books which told us what to do. Now we are so lucky to actually be able to view training on TV and obtain movies for home use. I'd like to think it has helped us all to become better trainers, but unfortunately much I've seen out there, doesn't convince me.

My trainer told me that she couldn't afford the dressage teacher she wanted, and she tried and tried again to watch, and finally her friend who took lessons "hired" her to videotape her so she could watch it at home. My trainer's payment was to watch the lesson and watch the video, that's how she learned dressage, at least at first. I guess different methods work for everyone.

Thanks. That is Playboy, my daughter's previous stallion. He's being exported back to England to live.

I just watched that movie Buck about Buck Brannaman last night, he is an amazing trainer! He's now my new favorite. His story is sad but incredible. And the stuff he can do with horse is awesome! He can make that horse move effortlessly and he looks like he never even cues it!

Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling is my favourite, and I've also gained lots of insight from Karen Rohlf and Ingela Larsson Smith.
