Down Under Horsemanship

Heyy I was just watching some television yesterday and I watched Clinton break a colt. It all seemed very reasonable and smart--I like his easygoing nature and that he actually makes the person /do/ it instead of just showing, like lots of trainers do. I am not planning on currently training any colts, but I learned lots of really fundamental stuff that is simple and applicable to many situations.

What are your guys' opinions with his methods?

I have read a few things by him and thought some of his stuff is really cool. I usually take bits and pieces from everyone I run accross and work it into something that works for me and the horse I'm working with. A lot of the stuff he did with the colt can be used on any horse. He tries to make his methods usuable on anything.

I do use his techniqe on slowing a horse down. As well as a few other things.

I really like him :) I've watched the Fundamentals DVD and think his approach is great. Really common sense and straight forward. It's done great things for my guy, my mom swears up and down by his methods and her horse is a walking testimonial.

I like the way that he really impresses on people the importance of groundwork in having a respectful horse, and one that wants to work with you.

I really like him !! I watched some of his dvds last year when I got my basically unhandled 3yo. She is so respectful now & everyone in the barn is jealous of her great manners ! I havent watched much of his stuff as far as riding goes, but I really like the groundwork stuff =]

I've used his method to train 3 horses from birth to saddle breaking. I've been very happy with the results. I'm not a trainer but CA's easy to understand approach made it simple.

I just finished watching his team up with Sherry Cervi for barrel racing, and there were a lot of good things in there. A lot of the ground work was also helpful.

I just bought one of his books because I was flipping through it and a lot of what he was saying made sense to me. But I'm like Silvera and learn from as many places as possible. I must have an awesome accent too because we are both Aussies lol!!!

I am currently using his training methods with my horse and my daughter..... it is sensible and he breaks the steps down so you understand. Good choice.
