It is worth pointing out that the horses entering this program can probably be described as spoiled and rank. They will require a much different level of training than a 2 or 3yo that has had proper foundations.
I think mentality of the owner can really be seen in this statement:
I need professionals to ride through his huge powerful bucking and get him over the trauma of having people being injured by it. He doesn't trust anyone on his back anymore because they all keep falling off. (That includes me!)
I am not a supporter of CA or a follower of his program. I did go to one of his seminars and enjoyed it. It was refreshing that he didn't treat the horses or owners like fluffy bunnies or play "games" with them. Just reading the information on this incident, I have to side with Clinton.
