John Lyons is the only person I've ever viewed doing Natural Horsemanship and I really took an understanding of his methods. He did a show at a horse fair in California a while back before I got my first horse.

I would love to get parelli's level 1 series but don't have the money and my library doesnt have it. :/

Cowgirl4 did you ask if the library could order it from another library? Sometimes they have a pretty large network to borrow from. I got my Clinton Anderson DVD from E-bay for a fraction of the cost of a new one. My friend put up a sign at the local feed store looking for used training tapes and got a few that way.

John Lyons and Clinton Anderson are my personally favorite. I love Clinton - his philosophy is with horses, everything is black and white, no shades of grey. It's very simple and you get excellent results.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

They might be able to inter-library loan it. (our library is so high maintenance! But i'll call them later! :)

When you call, tell them libraries are supposed to be "user friendly" and they are supposed to help you find any resource you need. Okay, you probably can't really say that but sounds like you would like to.:)

Clinton Anderson is the way to go! I LOVE HIM! He is very easy to understand and gets the job as quickly as possible.

Do you have RFD-TV? Its on like dish network, and direct Tv. You could watch that and find out who you like before going and spending money on stuff.

My personal favorite is Dennis Reis. He's got his own horsemanship that is somewhere between Parelli and Anderson. I enjoy that he only has 1 course to sell and not about 100 different ones like everyone else so you don't have to buy a bunch of stuff. However, I do like Parelli and Anderson and I use a lot of their techniques. John Lyons also is good.

However, I do not like Craig Cameron. He is too rough-and-tumble for me and I prefer a gentler approach, but that's just me. I respect Stacy Westfall, but after seing one of her seminars I don't agree with all of her methods, and yet again, I prefer a gentler approach.

That's just my two cents though. I would recommend buying Parelli's book Natural Horse-man-ship though, it has lots of useful information with out all the showboating and high prices.
