There are already several HUGE threads on this topic; you should look into those:

Parelli or Clinton Anderson?
Clinton V.S. Pat

Neither. Would not let either of them swing a leg over any of my horses.

Clinton Anderson, because I use his training methods and it's done wonders for my Gelding and I. I haven't seen any or Parelli's stuff or read his books though, so I'm not making an informed decision =)

Well, I am NOT a fan of Pat's. I tried his stuff once and couldn't get past all of the garbage. I have tried some of Clintons stuff, and have a lot of his groundwork dvd's. What I have done works well for me. I do not follow a single trainer though. There are plenty of other good trainers out there.

If those two guys were the only options in the world, I'd take Clinton. I don't know that much about his methods or whether I would personally like them or the guy himself, but from simply watching video clips I think he's more capable. I think he could take my horse further in the direction I'd want to go. His quality of riding is better and I've generally liked the look and feel of CA trained horses better.

Simple. He can't ride a stick horse to the well, he plows around on his horse's face like a caveman, he markets trick training under horsemanship and MANY of the horses trained with his methods are cranky and disrespectful...

Pat. He did work my horse and did an absolutely amazing job with her. I was mesmerized watching him with her. He was firm when he had to be, but compassionate and tactful. I would be honored any day of the week to turn any of my hoses over to Pat.
