I really like him. However, I think with any program you should take some things, and leave other things depending on the horse. Yes, I use alot of CA's methods but I also mix them with the other things I have learned and IMO that is essential.

He just has a common sense approach to training, that's why it makes sense, and that's why I like him.

I have a suggestion. If you buy a one month subscription to to No Worries Club, you'll have unlimited access to a ton (around 200) of downloadable TV shows that have previously aired on RFDTV. The method is gone over and gone over a ton of times throughout and sometimes he works with other trainers. In that one month, download as many shows as you like and you'll have them forever on your computer for only around $20.

After that first month, cancel your subscription so that you aren't billed for the following months. I've also noticed that I am still receiving the Clinton Anderson Journal and the monthly DVD's, but am no longer getting charged as I have canceled my subscription. Also, even if you are a member for one month, in that month you get the members discount and 5 free Wahl Walkabout Tour tickets. You get all the benefits for just one month. Its definitely worth it if you think long-term.

Glad you liked it.. You definitely get a lot out of that $20, so I certainly thought it was worth it. :)

One problem with that approach: The terms of the No Worries Club is "No Cancellations in the First 12 Months."

I'm guessing they either anticipated or already experienced exactly what you're describing.

Hmm.. That was nowhere to be found when I was a member and it worked then. They must've caught on. I suppose that was well over a year when I was one though. So maybe don't follow that bit of advice. Ha ha That's too bad.

Having observed CA, IMO he can be to aggressive in his 'punishment' of horses if they do not submit to his 'demands'.
Also, his "Handy" stick is no different in how he teaches people to use it than the Parellis. Individuals who rely upon extra equipment to teach a horse are not communicators, they are dominators forcing the horse to submit and not allow the horse to respond to quiet patience.

Really? Are you talking about the methods he uses in his TV show and DVDs or have you seen him get heavy-handed at one of his clinics?

And what kind of aggressive tactics are you talking about?

Exclamation Trust and Respect

On the television show.
Jerking the lead rope on the halter as hard as he has done with several horses. His reliance upon spinning ropes etc..........scare tactics.

Been working with horses for over forty years and I am not a user of such tactics. Domination and force as a mainstay of one's schooling methods, makes the horse submissive and not a partner. He does not 'allow', he 'demands' and these are two distinctly different perspectives.

CA and all of the rest of the 'clinicians' have good things to offer, the problem is that agressive behavior on their part sends the wrong message.
They talk of 'relationship' training, however, there is no relationship when one 'demands' rather than 'allows' the horse to learn.

With voice and body aids that are soft in quiet patience, sprinkled with firmness when required, this 'allows' the horse to learn rather than 'demands' and this shows the horse that the handler respects and trusts the horse.

"Respect"
‘To show consideration for, to avoid intruding upon, to notice with special attention, to regard to consider, to view, treat or consider with some degree of courtesy’

"Trust"
‘Confidence; a reliance or setting of the mind on the integrity, veracity, justice, friendship, or other sound principle of another person or thing’
