I lllooovvveeee Clinton Anderson because I understand him well. I don't solely use him though. I use some Parelli, some Anderson, some Lyons, some Joe Blow from down the street. It's all about finding out what works for you and your horse and what doesn't.

Do you have DirecTv? or some other cable provider that offers the channel RFD-TV?

That is a great place to get a preview of many different trainers.

Ebay is the best place for getting started.

For CA, I would honestly buy the Road to the Horse first. It is by far the cheapest and you will see his techniques in fast forward.

The first actually lesson from CA you would want will be "Gaining Respect and Control on the Ground".

What exactly do you need? You didn't specify... :)

I personally used "Gaining Respect & Control on the Ground Series 1. Also I heard "Riding With Confidence" is pretty good.

I do not recommend "Problem Solving" set - found it somewhat useless.

I dont want to get into trouble but... I'm not a huge parelli fan at all. I ... well.... anyway, what I think is you'd be better off goign to the library or renting them if you are interested in them. Or if you have Dishnetwork, you can watch them on the Horse channel. I forget exactly which channel that is, I can look it up.

yeah, I have Dish and RFD-TV is channel 231 I watch almost all of the shows.....

I'm still undecided in what I want to get.... I guess it depends on what is available on Ebay..... I emailed the parelli people and they said that out of their systems the Success Series would be the best for me because it is an overview of level 1-3

I think Clinton Anderson works best for a more Dominant horse, as submissive or sensitive horses tend to find his methods too "in-your-face" as that happened to one of my gentler mares and she became fearful and flighty a lot during that time so I switched.

I did Parelli with her instead and she did very well, she became calm and responsive. My dominant Left Brained Introvert (low energy, slightly, pushy) gelding does fine with parelli but I often have go up my phases quickly or he pins his ears and gets pushy. I haven't tried Clinton Anderson on him but I think it may do him some good to get a firmer approach.

Especially since CA always says that MANY problems that you come across can be fixed with a good solid groundwork and in gaining your horse's respect.
