I don't agree with strict "training methods" to begin with. Every horse is different and every horse needs discipline or lack of it to a different extent. Parelli gives the horse too much freedom, CA is too quick to discipline them. In my opinion. If I had to pick one of the two...nevermind, i'd just train my own horse, thanks :P now mind you, this is just my opinion, I know not everyone knows enough to train their own horse so nobody get on my case about it!

Clinton Anderson's program is amazing. I achieved more out of my horse than I ever thought I would in such a short time. It got my 17 hand quarter horse off his forehand and he developed beautiful self carriage. I ride him constantly on the buckle now even on the trails!! Our relationship couldn't be better. I ride hunters.... Clintons methods help any horse no matter the discipline.
Don't judge on their personality.... Judge on results! Do you want to ride your horse confidently or play games with him? I choose riding :)

This thread is fascinating . . .

I cannot stand PP, but I don't like CA all that much either. Of all of the BNTs, I generally prefer Monty Roberts or Buck, although I certainly don't agree with all of what they say.

Exactly.

I love Monty Roberts! His was the first book I ever read on natural horsemanship.
I just ended up working the CA program because my friend had all the tapes, so we did it together and I payed nothing!!!! I had a completely different horse when I was done, and can now help friends with their issues ect....so for me it was a blessing

Never heard of him... had to google it. Looks like another wanting to make a buck. I am so over the clinician crap.
Others have said this, nothing wrong with watching videos for ideas and additional information but rather than spending a chunk of money on clinician specific gear and club memberships look at a trainer close to you to ride with. One on one teaching will do so much more than trying simulate a method seen on TV.
Don"t get me wrong, I enjoy absorbing all sorts of information but I get the most from riding with a trainer, that is when I see results.

Meh, Guy McLean is a performer. I consider him to be on the same level as Tommie Turvey. Entertaining, but I wouldn't really take anything from him.
