    I gained a ton of confidence on the ground using CAs techniques. He gave me the tools I needed to maintain control and earn the respect that I did not have. I never really figured out how to use the stick, I just spin the leadrope instead, the swooshing sound gives me the effect I need. His techniques have really helped me though.

    I particularly like how he put together all these different exercises to gain respect but also teaching your horse special moves like turning on the forehand or side passing. He makes it easy and fun to learn :) but what really makes you a good horse trainer is when you moderate all your techneques and exercises to suit each individual horse.

You are not just stepping up and smacking the horse with the stick. Smacking the horse is the last resort, and, you only do it AFTER you have asked by tapping the air.

    I agree.....I know the method and it worked great on one of my other horses. It was the sight of the stick alone that sent my mare over the edge more less tapping the air....lol.
    Maybe she needs some desensitizing?

    Swinging and tapping shouldn't have different responses though.

    Sorry.....she WAS scared of the stick when we did the tapping.....but when we changed, she accepted the swinging so much better and was fine.

    ^^ im thinking that her fear had more to do with your body language than what the stick was actually doing.

    I fail to see the difference between 'swinging' and 'tapping'

    I think swinging would seem more aggresive... I think we had this discustion somewhere on the HF long ago... like years ago LOL. That swinging a lead rope is more aggressive than the flick of a whip because the swinging indicates the swinging movement from a stallions head and neck to move the herd.

    What horse doesn't need desensitizing?? I'm sure that if she took the time to desensitize her horse to the stick, all would be well... well, 99% sure. After that one OTQH, I can only be 99% sure now, lol.

    I used all of my 600 dollars from detassleing ot bu his dvds and books. It is all great! When he says whack he doesnt literally mean hit ur horse he means tap. My sister and I use it on all of the horses that we work with. A family friend that is a great trainer,who quinsedintally lives across the road from clinton, uses the method on every horse,all diffrent breeds and with patients it does work! :) Clinton is proballly the best trainer yet to me,over parelli anyday :)
