I live near Beechy... if you know where that is, if not, I live in Birsay, it is half an hour south of Outlook, or 1.5 hours south of Saskatoon. I would like to follow his method to, I appretiate your help.

Go for it Breezy, I don’t know much about CA but then they are all more or less the same in that whichever one you chose to learn from should give you a fairly holistic and integrated system with which to train a horse. Good luck and have fun.

I too am a "no worries club" member. Clinton uses many of the same techniques that others do and there are probably others out there that are even better trainers...but he is the best people trainer out there. You will learn more from him, especially as a relative newcomer to horses, but even experienced horse people get a lot out of him too. The thing I like is he isn't all sunshine and butterflies like some of the new natural horsemanship trainers. We have more respect from our horses trained in his method than quite a few other professionally trained horses I have seen.

I would recommend joining the club and then getting his video series, it is pricey but worth every penny. If you just stick to the free stuff you will get everything eventually but it will come in pieces. His method is really designed to be done in order and each exercise builds for the next one.

Good luck and have fun!

Cheers!

Thank you, I am not sure I can afford it right now, but I am wanting to join his club eventually. I have been around horses all my life and I know tones of methods, by a lot of different horse trainers, but I like Clinton Anderson the best!

LOL well I do know Saskatoon is, not much of a traveller so about the only province I've been to different places is here! Kind of hard to travel when you have pets!
CA is definetly a people trainer, he makes it so easy to understand how to do things......I don't regret the money I have spent on his DVDs because it has helped me and my friends tremendously with our horses!
AndrewPL, you're from Australia and you don't know who Clinton Anderson is LOL he's originally from there but has been in the Us for quite a few years now......

Breezy, you can join Giddyupflix for like $10 a month and rent one disk at a time for as long as you like. For a person on a budget, it is affordable. I borrowed a book and was in the club, but now I use Giddyupflix for CA advanced videos ( and other horse trainers too).

I really like CA too. His methods helped me change my mare from dangerous to calm and focused on me. I started from the beginning with the fundamentals and did just groundwork for 6 months, mainly because I was recovering from a really bad injury and was on crutches. But it was awesome because I just focused on that. I think it will be great for you and your young horse!

I know what you mean about the travelling, Lol, I don't live on a farm, but in a small house, with 4 big dogs, and 5 indoor cats, and a horse 2 mins out of town!

If I could join, I would, but my parents won't let me sign up, because they don't like to buy stuff online, even if it is a membership, or anything!

we live on just under 10 acres, I've got 4 of my own horses and 1 boarded here, 2 dogs and 3 cats......I did enjoy the club but I had all the disks that I really needed, I've got most of his DVDs from before the Fundamentals which they changed to a couple years ago but the DVDs I have are just as good......

My horses are the joy in my life.....

I actually never thought of this until now. Is it possible a Library could have this stuff? Or get it for you?

What are your thoughts on Clinton Anderson?
Any tips on how to learn his techniques?
What are good books to get?
What are good videos to watch on youtube?

Any opinions on Clinton Anderson will be appretiated.
All I know is if my horse ever sees a rag on a stick in the dressage arena we're rock solid. (Just teasing don't jump me yet). I actually do like some of his methods. Best thing we ever did with our young Holsteiner was put him with a reined cow trainer. He worked cows, pulled logs, did mountain trails. It was great for his mind! Sometimes the greatest gift we can give out horses is a job at which they can succeed. Got to laugh though when I think about looking down the shed row with all the quarter horses and there stood our 17H boy who could have stepped over the gate. LOL
