Yep! That guy is pretty handy, he shows at the NCHA snaffle Bit Futurity too. Which that was the whole idea behind the futurity.

Chief Rojas designed the futurity with this style of horsemanship in mind. You were supposed to bring the same horse back every year ans show him in each stage....well you can see what it turned into.

Chief Rojas wrote an excellent book about that and the history of this style horsemanship, can't remember the name of it right now, but I will dig it out.

Would you recommend Richard's books and dvds for someone who wants to learn? He's doing a clinic that's about oh..lets round it to 21 HRS away from me would he be worth the drive to go see? Its just a horsemenship clinc but I'd like to know your opinion :)

Does anyone know of any online videos offhand that would show me what a bridle horse looks like in action? Something that shows what the finished goal is? Because there are a lot of light, responsive normally trained horses out there. Like reining horses and such. How is a bridle horse different than say a good reining horse?
Look up Richard Caldwell or Bruce Sandifer, they both have videos on YouTube and they have websites.

I would almost say reining somewhat derived from the goal to have the ultimate bridle horse or responsive horse. Again the process is a little different and reining like any other show class has considerably evolved from the original intent. The reined cowhorse classes are still fairly close.

If I was you, I would maybe watch some of his YouTube videos, see if you like him. Then maybe get a video or two. If you are still interested then go to a clinic. I would go watch

You should contact Richard and see what you need to do to host a clinic. I wanted to go to a Ray Hunt clinic but didn't want to travel very far so I contacted him about hosting one. It was quite easy and I ended up basicilly riding in both classes for free. The most difficult part was finding an arena to hold it at.

I wrote my last post before I realized you were in the YUKON! That may complicate matters some.

that's a good idea as well! I'll check out his videos and see. If he's as good as his Clinic Testimonials, I'll contact him about a clinic way up north here. :)
