Has anyone actually taken their horse to a three day Clinton Anderson clinic?

There is a lot of debate about Clinton Anderson but has anyone actually taken their horse to one of his clinics? Or to one of his apprentice's clinics?
I don't mean as a demo horse but where owner and horse participate for three days.

Nope, but I have heard stories where he's gone and thrown tantrums about people -giggles- I know teaching some people is frustrating, but it's not like he's not getting paid hella good money.

I have heard those rumors too but I am wondering if there are any people who felt like they learned a lot and got their money's worth. If it was a good experience. Not that I am thinking about doing it! For two grand my horse and I could spend a long time with the trainers after all.

There was a post on fuglyhorseoftheday that he did some pretty nasty stuff to a clients horse.... I have never liked him, so I would never use him, plus I ride english. ;]

You can never take a Thoroughbred away from a horse crazy girl.

I would never let him touch my horses. He does talk down to people and make fun of them. He's very arrogant.

Still have not heard from an actual participant. Wonder if there are any on horse forum.

Probably because the people that have that much money, have very little sense and are probably doing some corporate job, trying to get along with their horse - not actually educating themselves.

Like you said.. You can spend quite awhile at a trainer's for that.

and they most likely go on the CA forum to talk to other CA people.

Well since most of the responses were not from actual participants in a CA seminar, I may as well throw in my 2 cents.

A trainer from my trail club did participate in a three day when he came to Maine. She was very pleased and felt she got her moneys worth.

Though this is still not from an actual participant, take it for what it's worth.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".
