You dont have to use those above trainer's ideas to a T. Yes, they are "glamourized" alot, but underneath some people really do need some guidance and that is what these people are here for: to make their ideas known to the world and to hopefully have people follow them. Clinton Anderson is one of the best trainers. I use alot of is methods and have gotten great results. Just because you respect a trainer doesnt mean you have to do everything they do....you can throw your own little twists to add your own flair to training your horse. If you dont feel like going directly to these trainers, get certified trainers that are from Clinton Anderson, Pat Parrelli and go there. Or, just go to a trainer that you feel comfortable with that is in your local area. You cant always learn on your own....look at why we kids are in school lol.

So, you can mix and match, but you need to make sure you understand what you are doing before you apply it to the horse. If you are not sure, you'll definitely send mixed messages.
Good point Solon. I think that's what I need to learn. I need to figure out what principles I'm trying to teach and then figure how to best teach them.

Oh, and an edit for my last post, my horse's accident didn't happen with the third trainer. Just wanted to make that clear.
