I couldn't watch that much of it. The gimmicks in the beginning turned me off.

Don't talk yourself up, show me what you can do.

He could ride it, like Pecos Bill. And use a sidewinder for a rope.

LOL! If he did that I would totally spend the the $19 for his DVDs...

It's kinda funny how I ran across him on YouTube...
I typed in "Nevada" in the search box. You get all kinds of stuff, property for sale, horses...blah blah blah. This guy comes up, one of tags on his videos is "horse riding lessons in Nevada"...
He lives in Penn Valley, California....huh?

I dunno, something about that mustache and those chaps looks really familiar!

I'm sure I have seen someone else who works with horses who looks just like that.

Ok after my first knee jerk reaction to the 'stache and chaps I did sit down and watch him. He seems like a nice, sincere guy doing his best to earn money doing something that he is passionate about.

I think what makes it hard for people like this guy is the fact that someone like Pat Parelli is so incredibly successful. PP has kind of set the bar for gimmick horse training and has demonstrated what, as a marketing strategy, works to sell the idea of horse training. So now every new, up and coming, wannabe trainer is compared to the likes of Pat Parelli and gets the eye roll "here comes another one". I think this is sad for them.

LOL, I wouldn't put him in the same category as good 'ol Rick Gore for sure. I think if I was going to put my shingle out as a trainer I would set myself apart from the rest in some manner as not to be compared or lumped in with them. (Granted this is coming from a girl that never made a living training on my own, but working under someone else..haha)

But yes, I was put off by the mountain lion, coyote, bear training comment....if someone is going to the extent of "gimmicking" like the rest, I want to see it.

After learning to do liberty work with my horses, I tried approaching a wild doe. When she look away as I approached I stopped and looked away. If she stamped a hoof, I backed up two steps. Eventually I was able to get to within about 15'. I then turned and walked away. She was still standing when I looked back. I watched a video of a scuba diver who had visited an eel without trying to touch it. One day the eel came out and rubbed against her like a cat, seeming to soak up affection. The lady may not see the eel for months but there is instant recognition and the eel is all over her. So don't dismiss what he says. Animal trainer have been doing this for years.
