I will have to agree that he is Ok. I would put him higher on the list then say PP however he falls into the lets watch this DVD and we will know it all kind of thing. However I will say that those who use his techniques do not get as single minded as people who follow others.

The ones I like are the ones who proved their techniques before they ever did a video or tried to sell things to people. I also like the ones that do not push their stuff to get the job done.

I like him. I have never seen any of his DVDs, saw the tail end of a thing he did on RFDTV but I have read quite a few of his training articles and audited some of his clinics. I see him as a people trainer. HE makes the concepts easy for people to understand and then you add common sense and your horses own attributes into that and his methods work.
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

I like Clinton Anderson a lot. His methods are very simple and easy to understand and I have seen a difference in horses that have been trained on his method.

Man can see what man made from the seat of a car, but you can see what God made by the back of a horse!

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.

Yep Google Monty Roberts Join Up and you will find his website.
His books are at most libraries too :)
It's a way of bonding with your horse and making yourself "Alpha Mare" using horse psychology and usually a round pen.

I like very much his DVD. There are really clear, and easily understanding for french people like me.
Actually, we are working his method with 2 friends, looking DVD together, and apply after on our mare.

On one DVD of gaining respect and control on the ground, he talks about work in round pen, so with my friends, we asked us if some DVD exist on work underground without halter, a kinf of join-up.
Did anybody know?


(sorry for my english...)
