My two favorites too!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

i really like clinton anderson. i havent watched much of his under saddle work, but his ground work is great ! he is very no nonsense and makes things simple for the horse and the handler.

im on the Clinton Anderson boat too :) I like that hes very straight forward and doesnt base his training around babying the horse like others do. If he needs to be tough he is, plain and simple, start by asking, then insist, then tell! I also really like John Lyons, I have his books and I really really really like them. Sometimes he goes off on a rambles in his books, but its full of wonderful knowledge and easy and straightforward technique. Plus he has a solution for everything! I agree too that Ryan is an idiot, I dont understand how he even has his own show! Every episode is the same, he uses the same techniques for bolting and pushy horses as he does for ones that dont want to go forward undersaddle and ones that dont know how to go forward at all, and ones that have loading problems, etc etc etc. I truly wonder if he actually knows how to do anything other than tap behind the front leg to move forward and put pressure on the lead rope to move back
