This video is a perfect example. I think Clinton is a great hand, and probably bar-none the best male rider I've seen. His horses perform and his techniques work.
However, watch at 1:06 how he ridicules cowboys and "their methods" of bucking horses out, but in this 3 minute video, he's seen bucking 4 horses out, whipping with a longe whip and a traditional whip, horses crashing fences, and at least 2 horses flipping over backwards.
So me deal is...if that's what you do, fine. I don't have a problem with his program. But don't criticize and accuse cowboys of being crude and rough, then whip and knock and crash in front of the world. People don't be stupid. And all of these NH guys do this, not just this guy.
