Clinton Anderson Books

I am interested in getting a Clinton Anderson book to use as a training tool/insight into his lessons ans was wondering which book anyone would reccomend for this. There were two books that looked like they would be interesting for this purpose. They were Establishing Respect and Control and Lessons Well Learned. Any suggestions on this? Thanks

I have the Introduction to Down Under Horsemanship and it is amazing. Lots of pictures and tips for what the handler is doing right/wrong and also for what the horse may do right/wrong.

I have them both. Can you get them from the library? Then you will know which one you want, and can pick it up. Respect and Control gives you specific lessons to learn with your horse, and Lessons Well Learned explains the philosophy of *how* you work with your horse. I think they are both important. Maybe you'll want to buy the Respect and Control one since you will be learning exercises with it and need it longer, and just read the other one from the library. I'd take notes on the most important stuff in the book. I like to re-read mine to help me remember the finer points of what I'm doing and why! Enjoy!

BTW, I also found it helpful to get a copy of his groundwork DVD set through our state's interlibrary loan program. It helped clear up a few things that weren't crystal clear in the Respect book.
