Here's another guy you might want to check out:
Doug Mills Horsemanship - Home

He's not too far from where I live and although I've not watched the DVDs, I know that he's good. He's won many colt start competitions.

Then there's also this guy:
Jonathan Field Horsemanship - Horsemanship Dvds - Natural Horsemanship

I know him personally and he's very good. I've watched the DVDs and the content is good but the production quality is not as good as Parelli.

The only thing about those CA and Parelli videos is that they show them working with already trained horses. It would be much better if they showed them working with an untrained horse and and untrained rider.

Christopher's basic explanation of the Communications "loop" of NH training is fundamental to all and easy to keep in mind. The negative and positive and operant explanations hurt my wee little brain to try to keep straight.

Which is as it should be, we are, after all, asking the horse to do something highly un-natural - interact with us and ALLOW us to ride them, we enter their world and need to communicate in a way that they get, so that we get what we want!

Chris Cox is the best I have seen ... he has a book on his website that is $25 and goes thur alot of his ground work step by step with pictures and all

Chris is quiet, firm and gets results!!

It's all about pressure and release... you apply firm steady pressure and when the horse responses you release all pressure

Statelinetack has a lot of free videos on their website. I found them helpful.

Clinton increases pressure until he gets the reaction he wants

Chris takes ahold and hold it until he gets what he wants doesn't increase at all just holds ... then releases

Clinton for movement looks, steps then whacks

Chris Look, step, swing rope while stepping... if the horse doesn't move it will get smacked with rope when the step reaches that close enough

LOL. I just love what you said about Monty Robert's book. "Useless and highly uninformative"- such a perfect description. Thank you for that laugh :)
