I got a Clinton Anderson book a while ago and it looked like it had a few good ideas in there. I'm not using his groundwork stuff on Lacey because I'm pretty sure it would completely backfire since she's so easily confuzzled, I am considering incorporating some of his ridden exercises into her routine. I think it depends on the horse. Some of the ideas in that book just seemed to be there to take up paper because I can't see how they would help anything at all....I can't think of any examples right now though. I thought of one: there's an exercise where I guess the end result is a horse that just kinda does exactly what you tell it to, like trotting straight along the rail, until you change the "order" then it does that until you tell it to stop. Which I suppose is good for some people but I like my horses to be a little bit more open to free thinking and less reliant on me to tell them every little thing than that. Sorry if this makes no sense, it's really late in my world. =P

I love CA! If you have RFD-TV you can really see alot of his techniques for free. I think his methods are extremely easy to follow and work on every horse.

I try to mix up a lil bit of everything. I take a lil bit of Parelli but I'm not really a fan. I think he makes things more complicated then they have to be. I really don't care for Craig Cameron (someone mentioned him). He doesn't follow through with his techniques and is way to "cowboy" for me. Plus I've never seen him do anything super great with a horse. Everything just looks rough. Not rough handling but like he tries to make a horse spin and it doesn't paint a pretty picture. I like Tommy Garland if your into Arabs. I think he does a good job.

There is so many of them out there. I have found Clinton to be the most benefical!

I am not trying to start a fight but I am the one who mentioned Craig Cameron, when I first started riding as an adult. I was adviced to watch Clinton Anderson and I will admit, he is very good. But for me Craig Cameron makes more sense to me as does Chris Cox.

My advice is mix and match and use what works for you and your horse, everyone is different.

I have been fortunate to attend the Horse Expo in Sacromento, CA in 2003 and watched Parelli, John Lyons, and Clinton Anderson all perform different styles of training. I personally like all three, but Clinton Anderson kinda just keeps coming to the top.

Well, also he will be doing a Clinic in Oklahoma in the same town that I live in. It will be in August, but I cannot not wait!

Ha, I just recently attended the Wahl Walkabout in Lexingon, VA (they've been sending out lots of free tickets to these events...I'm guessing the economy must be effecting them as well!). Anyway, have to give Clinton kudos on his presentation: he is a very good speaker. Entertaining, engages the crowd, good at explaining what he's doing while he's doing it. A lot of fun to watch live.

I don't know his past background but I always wondered if he was once a high school teacher. He talks like he's trying to teach kids, "So you want to train your.......What?... Your horse, Right!

Well i've made this type of comment before on another horse forum and most of the women seem to have crushes on mr. Anderson and just go off on me, but i'm going to spout off anyways...i'm pretty sure if he didn't have that accent he'd be mucking stalls someplace. If you feel like you have to watch someone "famous" (on RFDtv) then you should watch Chris Cox, if you want to learn from someone a little lesser known but even better, look up Curt Pate, if you want to learn from someone completely unknown, but possibly better than all of them, look up Kevin Wescott.

Don't get me wrong, I think a person can learn from nearly every trainer - even if it's learning what NOT to do...but if you were going to try to mimic one trainer, he isn't the one, and for your own sake IGNORE ALL the Parelli stuff!!

Ok...i'm ready for the rotten tomatoes and beer bottles to be thrown...just please don't start your argument with "i don't care what he looks like..." it's a dead give-away!! Lol

Everyone has their own opinions. I prefer Clinton to Chris Cox but I like them both. I think Clinton is just really easy to follow and his methods really do work. Like they said like kids could do his techniques. I'm sure the people really into Parelli hate him because he is too rough or something!

Is that Curt guy the one that did the AQHA video? I never heard of the other guy?

I take bits and pieces from just about everyone and make some of my own techniques as well. Whatever works for you.
