I have been a fan of his methods for several years and used them with great results on our horses starting young before bad habits occoured.
Our friend, Lindas' horse Lexi had originally been trained for the track and tought to run through or ignore the bit and run as fast as she could, never trot or walk. On top of that Linda had spoiled her for 6 years allowing her to literally walk over her and push her out of the way with little consequence. I had my doubts that he could do much in two days with a mare that has had 6 years of habits, but by the time we loaded her in the trailer last night she was very respectful and alot easier to deal with !
Linda says she is committed to keeping up with the methods he taught her, If she does this Mare will be a great horse. If she gets lazy and goes back to her old ways i'm sure the horse will too. Clinton did the hard part and got the old habits out of her, its up to Linda to enforce, maintain and advance on his work.
