Well that was... lengthy. I felt like I was eavesdropping on your training session with Jack. It was cool to see!

Personally I actually learned a lot and appreciated all the depth you went into. But for some people length may be a problem as they tune out or fast forward the clip or whatever.

Audio was great. Step by step was lovely, though at times you started on a subject and something came up so you jumped to it without finishing your current thought. Which is fine since we got to see you deal with things as they arose but it wasn't "smooth" :P

But seriously, great job! Enjoyed all the tips and again how you said people need to think for themselves and not just do exactly as you do or think it's the only way.

Never saw someone do groundwork in a pen occupied by horses though, that was new!

Thumbs up.

I think that as long as there is good information flowing, the length should be what it will be.

I think people with short attention spans should fix their issue, instead of restricting the flow of useful information for the majority that can keep focused for as long as is necessary.

Dealing with things as they arise is the name of the game, but next time I'll ask him to please let me finish what I was saying before he changes the subject lol.

In some ways I do have a plan, in that I have a vision of what I'd like to see happen but at the same time it's very much an in-the-moment kind of process. I'm continuously getting with him so that he can get with me and the line between action and reaction gets kind of blurred. It's multitudes of actions and reactions, separate and inseparable all at the same time. That's why it can get to where it seems like I'm jumping around from one subject to the next. It's true that I am doing that, because I'm just voicing my observations of what's happening from one moment to the next. It's a bit of a different approach from a more organized, standard presentation style. I call it 'freestyle'. :>

Agree totally with this. In the DVD set "Three Masters, Three Legends" Buck Brannaman says that good horsemen have very long attention spans. I'm very much interested in the process and the subtle things and make these videos to appeal to people who share my passion for becoming good with horses. With awareness that I'm probably limiting my audience by doing so; but I'd rather have a small audience to travel around and do quality work for than a huge company selling lots of DVDs and merch. Those other guys have done a fair job of filling that role so I'll leave it to them.

Good job.
