Clinic with Trainer, Joe Guy

I am considering organizing a clinic with trainer, Joe Guy. He travels across the country on horse and works with problem horses that others have given up on. He has been featured on national TV. The website is Has anyone heard anything about him? I am located near Canton, Ohio. Is anyone interested in participating in a clinic with him in this area? Any ideas on how to advertise and see if there is any interest in this in my area? Thanks.

Never heard of him but geez, isn't he a real cowboy? Australian singer/songwriter AND horseman? -eyeroll- He's also an author, actor, performer and playwright! What a well rounded individual. /end sarcasm.

I personally would not be interested in attending a clinic of his. If I want to learn about horse training, I go to a horse clinic. If I want to see a musical, I go see it on Broadway, and if I want to learn to act I head down to my local theater group. I don't really understand WHAT exactly he's advertising, or what I would be interested in learning from him.

Oh god! That looked pretty scary! Boy, I think I will save my own life by avoiding any further contact in any way, shape or form. The guy looked totally narcissistic to me I'm afraid, actually he reminded me a lot of another queer arse Aussie, Troy Dan. Never trust a man who spells so badly on his advertising website - it means that he thinks he is always right and never asks for help or input from anyone else. People like that won't learn from others therefore can't be trusted to teach. This is my amatuer psychological report, (based on one visit to his website) on Joe Guy! Cheers!

Seems to be cashing in a bit.

His songs wouldn't be too bad if he had sold them to someone that could sing.

I'd pick the known guy or gal to organize the clinic if you want people to attend. I never heard about this person, and his website is really messy and almost nothing about actual training. People usually like to pay for real training at the clinic, not singing and talking.

My Mom told me about this guy. She saw him on tv, so I have heard of him. I couldn't find a whole lot on his website either. Sounds like he's a guy who has learned from experience and doesn't have a set system for what he does. I like that, but I can see this might not translate well into a clinic.

I found this forum when I was googling Joe Guy because he's coming to my town (El Dorado AR.) this next weekend and I'm considering taking a yearling filly with behavioural issues for him to work with,,,,,,,I'll get to watch him ride and work for 2 days, so I'll try to remember to let you know what happens.
