And he's cute so it doesn't hurt :P
I don't really follow any one big name trainer. The closest one you could say I "follow" is Monty Roberts but only really on the groundwork/join up.
However I really liked some of CA's articles, so he is one of the people I steal from :P
What exactly is 'join up' ?
I do have experience training horses, but is started looking to NH when I got my 3yo...she only knew how to lead & tie & I really was not sure where to start outside of brushing her. Esp in terms of lunging, as my other horse was abused & is terrified of lunging.
