Gypsygirl, sorry I didn't answer your question yesterday. I'm usually a big fan of Clinton, and I definitely think his method makes sense and works. On Saturday his clinic was even better than I expected because he's so funny, but on Sunday, I got a different vibe from him, and I was wondering if anyone else who was there noticed it too. I wasn't there for the full day; so I didn't see everything that took place that day.
I don't know if I just prefer his groundwork style to his riding style, but he seemed rougher than I expected when he was riding. I had thought about applying my horse to be a demo horse, and I was thinking that I probably wouldn't have liked for her to be ridden that way. He was jerking on the reins and slapping the horse on the top of the head with the mecate. I wondered what the horse's owner thought of it.
