    The only C A I have used is the handling newborns foals and yearlings. I used it on a filly I had from birth to 2 years. The people I sold her too have called me several times to commend me on my training of this filly. They have young children who can jump on her bareback with a halter and reins and go anywhere. I had just started putting a saddle on her when I sold her and she was taking it in stride. I would recommend that series to anyone with a newborn. I use a combination on stuff on my mares and I'm still using the C A method on the fillys I have now. I just discovered Frank Bell and I'm going to try some of his stuff for getting the youngins under saddle. Unless you find a clinician you absolutly love I think its best to learn as much as you can from different trainers and then use whats best for you.

    Although im not 100% into natural horsemanship I have used methods from a few different ones to help out with my wb. I've used techniques from frank bell, parelli & anderson. There is some other guy too who does the bonder email that I have used bits from and they have all worked well. It promotes a better understanding of what your horse is thinking and how your actions can be effecting your horse.

    But I have to say the more I learn about natural horsemanship, the more I am coming to understand that most of these techniques can just give us an understanding of what is required. Through experience and dealing with different things you can quickly learn how a certain technique can be tailored to suit you and your horse.

    I say mix it up a little and learn things from all the different ones. It can never hurt cause all horses are different and may need a different approach than the horse before him

    I like some of the things Clinton Anderson does, but others I don't agree with..... somehow I've found that with every trainer I've heard of.... I just take the pieces I agree with and put them all together in my own kind of thing....... it makes it a lot easier to improvise that way my horses can have their personalities considered as well
