He had a rope around the stallions back foot, so he couldn't buck or freak out or whatever.
I just thought that was weird and maybe dangerous in a way? But aside from that everything he did was amazing

that was just a way for him to have more control of the horse than he would have with just a rope around his neck or a halter. I don't think just anyone should do it, but he has a lot of experience.

I figured that much.
When he was getting that same horse onto a trailer, his attitude never changed. That's so amazing. I'm so impatient

I was told in no uncertain terms that I was not capable of breaking in my own horse! That really challenged me! So I bought Clinton Andersons Colt Starting DVD set (I live in New Zealand) and started my horse myself. It was absolutely brilliant, a step by step instruction that was easy to follow. His first outing under saddle was a noisy parade. I was only going to pony him but he was going so well I rode him and he went perfectly.

So, I am very grateful to find something that worked so well. It was the first horse I'd ever started and I am over sixty!
Yes I agree it's alittle confusing but you get it eventually and now I love it!!

I use Clinton Anderson's groundwork methods, haven't spent much time looking at his riding methods. All have worked very well for me. I'm going to his clinic this summer, I'm pretty excited. He is also the most honest of the bunch, in my opinion. It's just a matter of using your head. Don't push your horse too hard. Realize every horse is different and will respond differently to the methods. I really dislike parelli. He's not a good teacher, and I've seen him get really heavy handed. I'm definitely not saying Clinton is perfect, but I really prefer his methods over parelli.

For you CA fans out there...do you belong to his No Worries Club? Do you pay that price every month or year for joining? Do you guys buy his dvds?

I want to join his club and buy his dvds...but they cost so much money. I can't afford them.

So I look online for the dvds for a cheaper price.

I really like clinton. I saw him on tour in 2005. He signed a poster for me and had a pic taken with him. I was so nervous then. But it was a great tour to watch.

I wish he would come back to ny for a tour stop. That would be great!

I found my DVD's on Amazon and Ebay used. Way cheaper than joining that club. I am not paying him to be in a club and then have to pay for all the DVD's, etc. You can get the equipment he uses other places as well. It just won't have his name on it.

I'm not a member of the no worries club, nor do I own his dvds. WAY out of my price range. I'm trying to find them used for a reasonable price. I just watch youtube videos and read articles, mostly. I also watch his show when I can.

if you are a member of the NWC you don't really need to buy the dvds because he has so many videos for you to watch on there. You also get mailed journals that have some really usefull tips. I would join the NWC over buying to dvds new or on ebay.

Yes, I am a member of the NSC. Don't need to buy anything. It's such a great resource of knowledge. I get all the tv programs on line, a monthly DVD sent and the quarterly journal. Also there are some great trainers who are members and they share their knowledge willingly, just like this forum. They are all very kind and generous.
