Clinton Anderson did not train with Pat Parelli.
They are competing against each other on Road to the Horse, this weekend I believe.

Whats up with the circle game. Though it's great and everything, and it's what I do with my horses, but its not that different to normal lunging, except normal lunging has the added "friendly game" of the "micromanaging" in the case of lunging, micromanaging will become a friendly game in that the horse will become dull and non-responsive to it, and eventually relax while it's going on, which is the friendly game.

The circling game is a speficic type of lunging. Pat Parelli on one of his dvd's says that 10-20 years ago he used to call it lunging or some type of lunging. It's a specific type of lunging because you do specific way of stopping, and circling. It is not lunging in the sense that do you 50 circles. Most of the circling game at level 1 and 2 is a few circling laps done in a specific way.
I do both with my horses. I lunge for exercise and do the circling game. Pat thinks most people lunge to get freshness or energy out of a horse so he based this game on doing less laps, but more specific things to do while lunging.

The biggest difference between circling and lunging is that fact that many people lunge using constant pressure as if they are constantly chasing the horse with their body/whip/energy. This is not teaching the horse any responsibility or anything about pressure/release. He used to call it lateral lunging.

Hmm I have heard that he did study in Pat's program. There are quite a few people out there that are ex-Parelli that are using many of the same techniques but branding it differently - with their name.

I heard or read that CA is a Level 3 graduate of PP's program.

He had to change the term for "carrot stick" to "handy stick" :).

Thanks for expalaining the circling to me guys ! I think its exactly what I do when I lunge, but I walk around in a small circle instead of standing in one place. I don't believe in lunging to get the bucks out or chasing my horse in a circle 50 times. I do sometimes lunge when she is a little hot, though I never let her run out of control, I w/t/c halt and back until she is responsive to my cues.

I really like watching him work with a horse that doesnt know any of the games because you get to see what problems can arrise & how to fix them. I watched a video with my friend last night & thought it was pretty good because it wasn't just him working with one of his horses that already know everything.

It also gave good tips for when testing a new horse to determine what they will be like in the saddle (how sensitive they are to pressure, if when you ask for a little they give you alot, are they spooky, etc) but on the ground.

Not true, he has never worked with Parelli. He always says who taught him & it's not Parelli. Nothing either does is new, just fancier.

Just to clarify

Clinton Anderson's "Down Under Horsemanship" TM
Rated by Horse Magazines “Horse Illustrated” and “Horse and Rider” as one of the country’s SUPER clinicians, Clinton Anderson is making a tremendous impact in the horse community. Clinton Anderson was born and raised in Australia where at the age of 6 he started riding horses during weekends and holidays. His family recognized Clinton's natural ability with horses and cultivated his interest, buying him his first horse at age 9. Anxious to train his own horse, Clinton began attending horsemanship clinics at age 12. At age 13 he began playing Polo-Cross, played for a couple of years and was chosen for a national team representing his state. At age 13, he began spending all available time during holidays with nationally acclaimed clinician and horse trainer, Gordon McKinlay of Rock Hampton, Queensland, Australia and using his knowledge to train horses for friends and neighbors.
