    Noone discounts him! We are just betting!

    I believe CC already won it before... Am I wrong?

    I don't know. If PP does what he knows how to do instead of trying to make it a 'let me prove my program' thing, he might have a chance of winning it.

    Pat (or one of his proteges, can't remember) actually competed one of the first years Road to the Horse was started. His horse ended up getting sick.

    It shouldn't be about who wins. To me, the winner is the one who offers the horse the best deal and treats him/her with respect and does everything in his/her power to make the experience good for the horse. So I'm saying Pat will "win." :)

    Well said. Totally agree, but still think it will be a really close one between CC and CA......like CC the best, personally.

    Spirit, it sounds like you are looking for excuses for (lost) Pat already! Don't put him in grave before the competition!

    I am going with Chris Cox...


    Why?

    Becuase of all the trainers out there that I have seen he is the less pushy about 'ground work' out there.
    He has the ability to get on and RIDE the horse without an hour of ground work. He does everyone most people do on the ground work right off the bat in the saddle...becuase he can...
    Of course, he does some ground work stuff, and pushes people who cannot ride like himself to do ground work... but that guy can sit with the best of them.

    The 'winner' of the road to the horse is the guy who's horse rides the best in the end.
    Not who's horse can stand on a stool, not who's horse loves him the most, Not whos horse will stand quietly while you poke at him with a stick, not whos horse can free jump a picnic table. If that were the case PP might just win.

    Clinton Anderson sure can ride too, but I think Chris Cox gets better results faster. The last CA clinic I went to his 'apprentice' sat on the 2 year old colt starting demo horse and rode it... that made me question him a bit.

    Both those guys have a great program though.
    I would pick Clinton for a beginner horse owner and Chris for the advanced horseman looking for more.

    I think Clinton has the most experience starting the youngins and since that's what its about he has the edge.

    Both Chris and Pat are real good at what they do for sure.

    The luck of the draw--which youngin each one ends up with--could alter the odds for sure.

    I will hold my bet until I see which youngin each gets.

    That's a fact. It really does make a difference what type of horse they draw.
    I'm going with Chris Cox because he is my personal underdog. I don't like him, he would have me in tears the whole time if I was training with him (yes, I'm a sniveling wimpy )
    I think they are all very well matched as far as ability.

    I'm going with Chris. I think he is an incredible trainer, and keeps everything very simple and direct for the horse to understand. His timing and "feel" is incredible.

    Of course this will be a very interesting competition. All three are excellent. I can't wait!
