I did talk to him over emails, and also was subscribed to his newsletters. He's very reasonable, and I agreed with many things he said. I believe he works with cutting or reining (or both) horses mostly. He's very "straight to the face" too (which not everyone likes). I didn't use any of his methods though.

I really like him because he uses several horses who really have problems in his videos, so you actually see them and how he corrects. Not many trainers do that. He isn't the best teacher, you'd have to have a pretty decent knowledge of horses and training to understand him completely(IMO), but if you have a basic understanding of training a horse, he can teach you a lot! I got his spins and rollbacks videos and haven't watched it in ages, but it worked wonders on a horse I rode for a lady who wouldn't set her pivot foot, although that was 3-4 years ago, so I don't remember how I corrected it, lol!

OK here's another question... possibly a stupid question...here goes...what is the difference between reining and cutting? Cutting is working cows right? But what is reining? Is it like advanced neck reining?

Reining is a pattern class where the horse is asked to perform certain maneuvers in a specific order: big fast and small slow circles, slide stop and roll backs, spins and lead changes. Cutting on the other hand is actually a working cattle class in which the horse and rider separate or "cut" a calf from the herd and must keep it from returning to the herd for a certain amount of time. There's a little more to it than that, but that's a basic explanation.

Both sound like fun...The cutting would come in handy when our stears get loose!

I think I check into him a little more...I was just curious what everybody thought of him.

I was just saying that he is more of a traditional show horse trainer. He has clients that send him horses to train for show, rather than most natural horsemanship clinicians who travel around putting on clinics teaching more of the backyard horse owners to train their own horses.

I haven't watched a whole lot of his videos but I have chatted with him through emails briefly, I like him, he is a very straight forward guy, no sugar coating.

As far as YouTube videos I would definitely watch his over a lot of the othe nut jobs that post "training" videos on there.

I am not sure what you want me to clarify....

There is a difference between a show horse trainer and a natural horsemanship clinician. I realize that lately trainers are picking up on the trend(being producing videos, putting on clinics, and selling their line of tack) so it fuzzes the line a little.

But I would hardly consider Larry a natural horsemanship type by what he teaches.

But it works...Right? I guess I'll probably check out the DvDs and see if the training does work on my horse... His way of explaining the stop,to me, was helpful.. has anybody used/seen his colt starting dvds?

I have never bought any videos, I have seen a couple on YouTube though. I think someone else mentioned his advice can be very helpful if you already have a basic knowledge in say reining or cutting.
I have no idea what his colt starting methods are like.
