It's maybe a good thing not judging too quickly or harshly . Some things may seem absurd,unortodox but there's a reason for. Position one is not about not bouncing but about transmitting the energy from the front to the back. It has to be practiced a lot.We will use position two to pivote with the back instead of the front. I'll explain later on why you have to cover the outside eye but there's a reason also for that.
You know, it's dead easy to give lessons and to fall in all the topics.
Dificult is to come up with new stuff but belief me there's still a lot to discover.

Um, well, you do get what you pay for in life...

I have to respectfully say that your methods aren't likely to be "the next big thing" for free or otherwise. What you teach is either old school methods (tying the head to tail or the "engagement ring" as you call it which is really a form of a chambogne (sp?)). Nothing new or necessarily unorthodox.
Your position is poor-leaning back is hard not only on your horse's back (evidence by his tense head postition) but your own as well. Leaning does not control the croup, your legs do when used properly.
The blindfold--NEVER in my life would I blindfold a horse over one eye or another to teach it anything. Maybe in a fire to lead it from danger, but as a training method? NO. What does it teach? You keep saying you will discuss in another video..why not now? I have a half blind horse..will that make him more supple? No.
Also, in the first video, Posisitions part 1, your saddle obviously does not fit. You can tell by the fack that it's up off the horse's back while you stand beside him talking. That will create a lot of problems and diffculty for your horse. It's uncomfortable at best, and possibly painful.
Your "engagement ring" is replacing simple side reins and tie downs. Could be useful in teaching to yield their heads, BUT if you put an unbalanced rider up there the head comes right back up as soon as the device is gone.
Your horse does not look happy to be working for you. He is tense, high headed and swtiching his tail. Your saddle looks cheap and doesn't fit. So how can you expect people to take you seriously, esp when you are not even wearing a shirt in one video? What are your credentials? You only demonstrate with the same horse over and us your talent with multiple horses, that aren't yours, with different issues, in different locations to prove your method works.
Most of your postitions are not "new" they are listed in horsemanship books world-wide as "bad" after centuries of riders in different cultures have discovered the best, most effective and safest positiions to ride in, regardless of saddle style or lack thereof.
So don't get offended if people on here are critical of your methods. You haven't proven yourself to the world. Clinton Anderson may be all cleaned up, fancy saddles, clothes and sponsors, but he didn't start that way. He gained that through proving his methods work, and gaining popularity that way. He isn't the world's only trainer, but there is a reason he's popular the world over. His horses appear happy to work for him, his tack fits, and he uses orthodox postitions. He also takes time to explain the "why's" of his methods as they occur, instead of procrastinating with the reasons. I've never heard him say "I'll tell you later".
Oh, and you don't always have to pay for his tips. They are available in magazines, books in the library, etc. But I'm sure Clinton doesn't have a separate day job, all his time is in horse training, so if he sells information, he has that right. If they (tips) didn't work, he wouldn't be successfully making money. Can't fualt him.
I trim horses for a living. People PAY me to do something they can't or don't want to do. They pay for my mind and skill.They could try to do it themselves or have the neighbor do it for feree, does that mean they are getting a quality hoof trim? Maybe,but it's rare that someone that is GOOD at that sort of thing woudl be hiding away trimming for free. If you have skills, people will be happy to pay for them.

If your for real in your videos I suggest you go take some lessons and really learn how to ride. Your so lucky that the horse puts up with all the crap your doing to her.
