An honestly I really hate craig cameron...Not for his methods but for the fact that none of his shows have ever really helped me. A lot of talking and not a whole bunch of variety or successful tips....It takes awhile to get to the point. Chris Cox and Dennis Reis are okay for me, I just find them sort of dull. I have to be in the mood to really sit down and pay attention.
I DVR all the shows so I can skip the irrelavent ones. Lol. Honestly I just enjoy watching their shows, I haven't actualy learned any thing from any body even Clinton.

My mom like Anderson and John Lyons

I use Ray Hunt / Buck Brannaman, I found that I couldn't really connect with the trainers methods, I mean their all kinda the same but not at the same time. :)

I don't care for any of the trainers who have their own product lines, but I have to say that Parelli is probably my least favorite of them.

He talks a lot, but doesn't say anything worth listening to.

I still remember the first time I read an article about Parelli "hill therapy." I thought it was a joke. . .like the horsey version of an article in The Onion. He and LP really seemed to think that they'd "discovered" the concept that working a horse on a hill was a good way to build muscle and balance, and they were "selling" the concept to their loyal followers.

Anyone who has done any riding outside of an arena on any kind of a regular basis knows that working over varied terrain is great for both horse and rider. You don't need to join a $20/month "club" to be told that.

As for favorites, I have a lot of respect for Buck Brannaman, though (from what I've read and heard) he really doesn't consider what he does as "natural" horsemanship and regards the phrase as little more than a marketing strategy.

Ah - it's called marketing and sponsorship. These folks to do not approach the companies - the companies come to them. Same as any other althlete or celebrity. Paid endorsements.

The thing is, I have more respect for a trainer or rider who has proven themselves in their field and is asked to represent the company (like Ariat, or Wrangler, or Professional's Choice) than a clinician who slaps their own name on a bunch of training gadgets to be sold exclusively through their "training program" just to make extra bucks off their loyal followers.

Trevor Brazile is a great all-around cowboy whether or not he is endorsing Wrangler. The PBR riders who endorse Ariat have proven themselves in their sport with or without the products they help to advertise. Karen O'Connor, Beezie Madden, George Morris. . .they're all extremely talented horse-people who have proven their talent and gotten where they are by being GOOD at what they do. Not by relying on starry-eyed followers to buy their over-priced "stuff."

I have been told that GaWani Ponyboy is actually really good. I've seen him at expos sitting at his booth but I've never paid much attention to him. There are a few trainers here that really seem to like him.... I plan to take a look at him when I get a chance.

Bill and Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt and Buck Brannaman are my biggest influence. Bruce Sandifer is a fabulous horseman from Santa Barbara California that speciallizes in building the spade bit horse through the traditional vaquero methods of southern California. He has a lot of unique insights and methods that can help anyone regardless of style.

None of these people endorse anything in thier clinics. I think Ray and Buck have been sponsored by a halter company but they never push the products. When Ray did a clinic for me he showed up with one truck pulling a living quarters horse trailer like many people on this forum probably have. Buck is the same. The last time I saw a CA demonstration it looked like the circus was in town. There were at least 3 semi trucks and three or four big tents full of Down under Crap. Parreli is much the same or worse. These men aren't doing what they're doing for the horse. They're doing it for money and ego. That's not something I want to learn or support.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill
