    Perhaps you are not viewing it as a horse person. There is a time and place for "artistic". Jmho

    Actually, I like QH's very much, since that happens to be what I own. I'm just saying that the two breeds aren't comparable, and looking at her site, it is fairly obvious she would have no use for one. To compare the two is laughable.

    Yep, given what she seems to have written about the horse feeling trauma about injuring people when it bucked, combined with all the fairy nonsense, I'd be willing to bet if she is breeding horses she is turning out one spoilt brat after another. Yet, that's neither here nor there as far as her horse dyeing in the care of CA, or his staff at least.

    But she sure could sell it and buy another pretty fairy horse, huh?

    Absolutely Uncalled for!

    I am just speechless.

    CA's signature horses are sold for 25,000$ and are generally 14h to 15h on average, all quarter horses, and are picked for temperament and conformation. Some horses are dropped from the program if they don't "live up" to standards. This is the only way to get a horse trained specifically by Clint.

    The academy horse program- horses put into this 6 week program are trained by his TRAINEES, more or less (not newbies, but people who have been in his "academy" and successfully demonstrated the ability to "apply" his method on various horses) he does not train the horses in this program. He interviews applicants to see if they and their horse is a "fit", to which he says he tries to scare them off, and has turned down several applicants who he thought he'd probably, more or less, piss off. He spends a fair amount of time training signature horses, doing company crap, his horses, videos, blah blah blah. The cost to send a horse to his academy is a minimum of $4,714 (though may be more if your horse takes longer).

    This is paraphrased, but is information readily accessible thru his website.

    So far as people saying a lot of horses have died.... I haven't found anything derogatory or suspecius about the horses there? If someone has that information, please do bring to light. I know some people find his methods harsh (I don't personally, applied correctly, but I don't know all) but I have yet to find anything that states there are tons of horses dying thru his program, or anything particularly bad in general.

    The statement seemed as though it was not directed toward the owner. Seems like it was a general statement to the people that were attacking him for it. I don't think the owner thought he did something wrong (sorry if my previous post implied that, I just meant that anything suspicious would have been more thoroughly investigated, and if I had suspicions I would not have sent my horse there)

    I may seem obsessive but I'm supposed to be going there in the fall, so I have been doing lots and lots and lots of research these last few weeks so I know what I'm walking into. I'm not a CA guru (though I have now begun to research his method and see how it works), I just think all this bad mouthing and jumping to conclusions is not warranted.

    I see pictures of foals but I'm not sure what she's breeding. Certainly not the friesian, she said he's a gelding. Yet a picture posted on her fb (of a stallion no less) is being passed off as the dead horse. I'm all for posting pictures of pretty horses on fb, but when you/people on your page are claiming that is the dead horse, that is where I have an issue.

    BAD trainers kill horses, not LOTS.

    CA's statment was highly unprofessional and uncaring.

    Could be wrong, but it seems to me she is breeding them.
