I am a big PonyBoy fan myself, a slightly different technique and WAYYY less expensive. I am also on his fan forum with any of my own questions, and have found a gold mine of helpful advice there.
I completely and wholeheartedly agree with learning more than one method. While mine leans heavily on Pony Boy and Ray Clements, I have studied the 'biggies' until I got the basic technique down. I now have my own modified version that works very well for me. Be open minded, and flexible, and if something doesn't work out it isn't the horse's fault, bear that in mind, it is up to you to adapt.
Know thyself, know thy horse.
