Question Favorite Natural Horsemanship Trainer?

Hey guys!
I'm looking into getting into Natural Horsemanship, and I wanted to get some opinions on Natural Horsemanship Trainers. I currently have a couple Clinton Anderson and Monty Roberts books, and I watched Buck Brannaman's documentary, but I don't really know if I have a "favorite" trainer so far....
Which Natural Horsemanship trainer is your favorite, and why?

Clinton is my favorite. I find his way of explaining things really easy to follow and understand, and I like how he's not afraid to get tough with a horse when it's needed.

Jonathan Field is my favourite by far. I have tried many other trainers but I love Jonathan because he has a sense of humour too, and I just love the way he does things. He also is a fellow Canadian, haha.

Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

There are so many variations on NH now that you really need to look at a lot of stuff and cherry pick the best out of it and what works for you & your horse
I like Hempfling, Mark Rashid is interesting, Warwick Schiller is really easy to understand, David Lee Archer works with a lot of rescue horses & problem horses, he's been around horses for years so you get a lot of good old fashioned, no frills common sense - honestly look at as many as you possibly can, research and discuss with an open mind.

Parelli or Quantum Savvy, they both have a lot available on the internet if you can't get to an instructor personally

I don't have one particular. But I like John Lyons, Pat Parelli, and so far from what I've seen I also like Buck Brannaman
