There seems to be a great deal of resentment towards trainers and clinicians that just keeps building and it is even starting to impact the non-NH people.
CA does not say that he is a Natural horseman that I know of.
He is fairly successful on the clinic circuit and has lots of endorsements.
I personally am getting tired of the jealousy and resentment.
I would not pay for a CA clinic but there are people that get help from them and any success that can be had in these tough times in the horse world is fine by me.
There are way more people making it up on their own and screwing up horses without any help.
Coming onto this forum and seeing posts from people all across the country and into Canada that are struggling with getting information and help with even the most basic horse fundamentals really opened my eyes. In our area, we take that sort of knowledge for granted as its so readily available; but I can now see the use in a DVD/clinic program such as Clinton Anderson's. It's an easy to follow program that most anyone can follow and get repeatable results.
So while it might seem unnecessary to some that have an abundance of knowledgeable horse people around them, it can be crucial to those who don't.
