I am a senior in high school and starting an internship to get into the St. Andrews University western equestrian team.
The people I will be working with buy a lot of horses from Clinton Anderson and his program, and help to train some of his signature horses. I will be riding everyday and just helping to clean the barn and feed, a great trade if you ask me.
Can I get some other teens, or experienced horseman's/horsewoman's advice on Clinton Anderson? I want to know opinions on his methods and his philosophy, and No. I don't care that he has marketed himself, more power to him. Just this, are his methods effective for most horses? (I know every horse is different, but for generality?) I plan on also branching out and seeing other trainer's methods to get a well rounded training basis. Thank you!
