I loved this:
"I know this is shocking to know that as good as I am and as popular as I am and as famous as I am, my animals don't live forever either. Holy s***, I must be human. For any moron that's getting his panties in a wad because a horse died at Clinton Anderson's ranch, get a life."

I'm just reading it again, and couldn't say go Clint loud enough! I think that was needed and he's right. While it is very to the point, it should get across what needed to be said. That offer for the horse was above and beyond what I would have expected. The owner really shouldn't be hammering on him any longer, he's done all he can.

Love this quote, "So people, get a life, get out of business that doesn't involve you and start focusing on your horsemanship and your own lives. When people start doing that, they'll have a lot more success with their horses, a lot more fun and a lot less drama."

"Every person you will meet will have at least one great quality. Duplicate it and leave the rest." --Clinton Anderson

That seems odd to leave a horse unattended if it were tied that way for a legitimate reason. If he has ridden Mindy for 15 years that means she is pushing 20 and I might not want to take a gift horse either.
He wasn't going to give her Mindy. He was just comparing Mindy's size (14.1) to the size of the horse that he offered her.

We don't know that the horse was tied or how the horse was tied or whether that horse was attended or not.. that is rumour.

He also stated that SHE refused the necropsy.

I'm not an avid CA follower...but I sympathize with his situation and respect his statement.

I'll bet CA would have paid for it, if she had wanted one. After all, he refunded all of her training money and was willing to give her one of his horses FOR FREE. That cost him a heck of a lot more than a necropsy would have.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

"Reality is it was the owner's choice not to get an autopsy - she didn't want to get one."

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.

I don't follow any of the NH gurus either, so it's not like I'm all starry-eyed over CA or his program.

Methinks he doth protest too loudly... To cover himself, the necropsy should have been done by him, then he could have called the owner, told her her horse died of X... no nasty rumors.
