I think its a very individual thing. Same as one college professor can be a favorite to some students and a bane to others.
Theres one fellow (I won't mention any names) who's voice just drove me crazy. He just droned on and on in a very flat tone of voice. Others are so busy trying to sell you something the message is completely lost.
I like learning as much as I can from as many sources as I can. If it works it can't be wrong

It's great Clinton Anderson worked for you!

Personally, I like Chris Cox & Dennis Reis, but if you really look at trainers, most of what they teach really isn't that much different than the others. Just a different way of presenting it. For example, I was watching Clinton Anderson teaching his neck flexion (horse nose to rider's toes). I was having a tough time getting my mustang to do it, so I was just gonna forget it. THEN I saw Chris Cox on a bucking horse & he stopped it cold with the "emergency break". I went out the next day & worked on it! Just a different way of presenting it.

I agree with Vidaloco: I like learning as much as I can from as many sources as I can. If it works it can't be wrong

Horses are God's apology for men.

I agree with some of the previous posters. Its pretty much the same stuff.. just explained differently. I personally like clinton anderson because he gets the job done with out alot of fluff. I personally think he is easy on the eyes if you know what I mean... which is always a plus when you have to listen to someone talk for hours...

IMO I don't think he is too agressive. He uses force with the right timing which is the most important. I would rather have a few unpleasant moments than months pleading and nagging a horse who partially listens only half of the time. I have a boarder who does clicker training and they have been doing the same thing for months... I'm not seeing any results! No thanks...
