I think that learning as much about different techniques is the way to go. Then take that information digest it and then try the different meathods on your horse to see which one they like the best not every horse is going to learn the same way or the same level. For starting my horse I have used mostly the meathods of Mike Kevil who has a "Western Horseman Book" called STARTING COLTS i find his meathod very straight forward and he isn't trying to sell you any other aids. His book is relitively inexpensive. I have also taken the advice of other people who have been there done that. Although when you get right down to it the meathods are nearly the same only slight differences but that some times is all it takes for the horse to say I get it.
