Smile My horse is amazing!

I've been teaching my horse to do some groundwork (Clinton Anderson style) and he is already almost on the advanced! He is *so* smart! How many of you use the Clinton Anderson techniques?

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

I have used some of his techniques, but since I have trained for a long time, I have alot of my own technique and style, before CA came along. I am actually more like Chris Cox in my style, but I use whatever each horse needs to get the message across. I'm not "set" into one person's training methods.

I use my own methods. Who cares what other did. I do it my way or the Highway!

don't you want to learn from others and better yourself fear the tree ? Your post seems very close minded to me personally...

I really like clinton andersons techniques, I've learned a lot from watching him and have used many of his ground work methods on my mare. She is better behaved on the ground that literally any horse I know. Its great that his methods are working well for you barrelbunny !!! =]

My way combines all the ways I've learned. So I think it's rather good!

I haven't looked into CA much, but his techniques & principles seem to be quite similar to Parelli(well, what Parelli used to be like at any rate) & I was rather into PNH about 15 years back.

I think you need to give yourself a big pat on the back too, because I find that if these sorts of things are taught soundly & consistently, then it's easy for horses to pick up. It's hard for a horse no matter what the 'brand' if the handler isn't a good teacher.

I have watched almost all the natural horsemanship trainers out there and he is def my fav.
I do not agree with all of his methods but if I got the opportunity to train under him I would.
I base my training and methods off of everything I have witness or dealt with in the past. No horse is the same so having a big bag a tricks collected from different trainers and different disciplines really helps.
