IMHO, he's one of the better trainers out there who have DVDs because, like Chick said, he still gets his main income from actually being a successful trainer/competitor.
Everything I've seen from him has always been very straight forward, there's no touchy feely crap, and he explains things simply instead of trying to make it more complicated than it needs to be.
While I may not agree with everything he does (I don't wholeheartedly agree with the methods of any trainer out there), he still proves time and again that he knows how to produce a nice, well mannered, and well trained horse.
His methods are much more similar to how actual working horsemen and working ranch folks train their horses; get it done, get it done right, and don't dick around for 6 months before you ride them.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
