I've really wanted to get to one, but alas, have not made it to one yet...Consider me green with envy; I think you'll learn alot.

I went to one about...3 years ago. I learned a lot. He did a lot of promotion for his products and he made those horses WORK so some people didnt like it, but I would go to another one. I just audited.

I really like how he thinks the best training method is wet saddle pads. He was very easy to understand, took questions from the audience, and was overall very friendly and fun.

yes, I agree with you, he is nice to look at, lol. I might go for the 3 days, its only 35.00 the same price as a 1 day ticket, although I'm not planning on taking my horse just going to watch.I cant afford to take the horse and be a spectator its like 1000. thats if your a member which I'm not.

I went to one last fall also, it was really great until the end when the horse he was working with was really acting up and he couldn't make it do anything he wanted it to.

That's when things got sort of ugly and I started disagreeing with some of the methods he was using.

I'd say go ahead and go, it's a good experiance!

My husband and I went in April and learned so much! He is a wonderful trainer and I really respect his methods. I never once got bored watching and listening to him, as I do other well known trainers. He makes learning very easy.

He does kinda poke fun at most of these horse owners who let their horses walk all over them and don't respect them. He makes a statement at the beginning of all of his shows that those one or two women will freak out and send him a nasty email the following day about how mean he was, blah, blah, blah. I don't think he went over the line or even close to it any time during his training sessions. The demo horses being used could have seriously injured or killed their owners, so a little bit of "stick therapy" was necessary. He never even got close to being overly aggressive with the horses either.

You will definitely enjoy his training sessions! Be sure to bring something to write with while he is training so you don't forget anything!
