    I think for me it's a toss up between Chris and Clinton...

    I don't really have an opinion on who will win out of the 3, but I do want to say that I don't think its right they didn't invite Craig Cameron back. They have done that in the past with other winners, and I for one would have really liked to see Craig against Clinton and Chris.

    I enjoy the RTTH competition, but I do get somewhat annoyed with how the winner is selected. Obviously it can never be a level playing field, because each horse is completely different in every way. I felt bad last year when Richard Winters got such low scores from the audience because his horse was a little trickier than the other 2 going into the riding "test" in the open arena. I don't dispute Cameron's win, but I didn't like it that they let the audience weigh in. It can become a popularity contest or else people might judge it based on who gets the best results. Personally I don't think standing on a horse's back is the pinnacle of success at these things.

    But that's just me!

    I agree. I've seen all 3 in person and Craig is the best. He's also so much fun to present and answer questions!

    Oh gosh, and see I think he is really annoying. His voice annoys the heck out of me, but more so does him 'talk about everything possible in one long word' way he speaks. Haha, jmo.
    Then again the guy on RFD TV Dennis Reis also annoys me.
    They both just talk way to much, and the results just aren't what I'd like to see...

    I'm not really into the colt starting shows. I'd like to see a horse series that goes through a colt's first 60 days of training... covering once a week or somthing like that. Again, its jmo

    I am wondering though...
    How do you know they did not invite Craig Cameron back and he declined?

    I have no idea, may be they did and he was too scared to compete against other people. Lol!

    I'm not so sure about the voice, but the demonstration I've seen was very clear and easy to do yourself (it was starting horse on cow). He also made lots of jokes about people in demonstration and auditors. Very few trainers I've seen bring up laugh in (which I think is a very positive thing). Tommie Turvey and (somewhat) Stacy Westfall are like that too. Famous John Lyons was one of the most boring ever - he had such a "dying" voice that I thought something is wrong with him.

    Pat Parelli went up against Craig Cameron and Josh Lyons in the "In A Whisper" challenge, which was essentially the same thing as RTTH. Josh won, as he should, I thought he was by far the best of the three.

    Chris Cox and Clinton have both won twice if I'm not mistaken. I'm betting Clinton will win this one, even though he was beat out by Chris in the 2007 event. He's the best at getting a horse "broke", and I don't mean the "oh look he'll jump a cow patterned barrel" broke.

    I hear you on that one...

    Off topic, but I love it when things go wrong at clinics... like the horse messes up or just isnt listening or they spook, or the trainer says or does somthing backwards and everyone gets a good laugh...
    I think we are not reminded enough that horses are horses and humans are humans... mistakes are somthing normal in life and you just gotta laugh about them once in a while... No one really likes a person who plays the all perfect god trainer.
