It looks like people sell the no worries club DVds on HGS, so I registered there. Can't post for 24 hours thought.

Juniper, the horse didn't kick until she'd rib-kicked him a bunch! It was just a little buck-kick, (two legs off the ground & moved his bum into her) because it was understandably sick of it! You can't tell the exact # because camera panned away from it a few times to CA talking, but sometimes you could see assistant's head in front of CA sitting on fence, & you knew she kicked him again by her head jerking. I did count, & so I think 35+ is fair to say. Juniper, please see it for yourself! I'm not going to reply to people's statements about it anymore; don't want the job.

I did pm someone on here that had some dvd's for sale, not sure if they are the right ones. I really do want to see it. Surely does not sound good.

Way overblown IMO. But then, I believe in not letting a horse behave dangerously. I found nothing that I personally disagree with, however, we are all entitled to our opinions. There are plenty of NH peeps who think the clip hitting them in the chin when you are teaching backup is too rough. :( And-BTW, Northern-noone asked you to take the job. Thanks. Have a great day.

I went to his clinic in Kissimmee this weekend. I was wondering if anyone else was there and what you thought of it.

^^ what did you think of it ??

I watched it again, counted 32 kicks to the ribs that were visible on-camera. I see that she might not've kicked him in the two panned-to-CA parts, so I correct my initial 35+ to 32 visible kicks. While I was there, I slo-mo'ed the horse's "kick", & the horse didn't even try to kick her; it hopped its bum into her, landing full on the inside hind leg, lifting its outside hind leg up & folded.

I hope the ones I am trying to buy are the correct videos. I am really wanting to see them myself. Horses are such a lifelong learning experience is all I know for sure!

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.

Thanks for sharing that; for those out there who want to get an accurate picture of CA, all CA-related experiences help!
