He's awesome, and if you don't want to buy the DVDs, the book is really good, and only about $25.

I totally agree, he is super hot! I love him just because of that!

Kidding, Kidding. He is probably my fave NH trainer though, his methods get the horse trained for a job, not for wanna be circus act.

LOL literally... You crack me up! He's not as cute in person though.. to much time in the sun!

What I do like about CA is how hard he works!!! He's doing that clinic for 8 -10 hours a day!

We have seen Pat Parelli and Dennis Reis and Clinton Anderson in person.
And I must say Clinton Anderson is the best of them all. The methods he uses to teach riders and train horses are I believe presented in a way that anyone can learn from them. Like someone else says he takes the time to see if the crowd has picked up on what he just showed them and if they did not he does not move on till they do. He does sell dvds like the others do but he takes the time you paid for during the tour stop or clinic to teach a technique not just talk about what you should be able to do if you buy a dvd and go home and do it yourself. I personally cannot any of their dvds brand new so I buy them on e-bay and have been tickled to death so far.

I saw Pat Parelli at a tour stop and he wants you to watch him show off, talk about himself, and sell you dvds that he swares will teach you what he should have showed you for the money you spent to begin with.

I saw Dennis Reis at a clinic as well as a taping for a segment of RFD TV and during the clinic before the crowds arrived he was very arrogant to persons attending and actted like if you were having trouble getting it do not bother him or say you came to his clinic.

All I know is if we had teachers in the school system in America that had the attitude Clinton Anderson has then we truly would have no child left behind fore sure.

Oh, Lord Bless my horses, keep them safe, I pray in the name of He who was born in a stable. Amen

We are using CA's techniques to train Piper. So far I'm liking the end result. My trainer uses CA and her horses are so well behaved it's like carving a duck out of wood on horse back. Piper has become a respectful horse, as when I first got her she was very mareish. She will meet me in the field now and doesn't fight being haltered anymore. I can control her from the ground 10 feet away from her. I think this method offers the best before you ride guidelines.

I think the best part is the one rein emergency flex stop. (not sure if other trainers use that)

I love Clinton Anderson's training style! Ransom is so much calmer and respectful of my space. I love the one-rein stop and that is my emergency brake! He literally sticks his nose in his rope halter and drops his head to accept his headstall and bit. It is like magic!

I use CA's methods primarily. He drives me a little batty with the "Make your horse move his?.....What?.........his?......feet, right"
If you've ever listened to him you know what I mean I wonder if he had been school teacher at some time in the past. It reminds me of the school scene on Farris Bullers Day Off movie-
"In 1930, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, in an effort to alleviate the effects of the... Anyone? Anyone?... the Great Depression, passed the... Anyone? Anyone? The tariff bill? The Hawley-Smoot Tariff Act? Which, anyone? Raised or lowered?... raised tariffs, in an effort to collect more revenue for the federal government..."

Dr Pepper just came out of my nose. CA is a cutie and the accent helps a lot. His new ranch is just a couple of hours from here. My farrier just moved from there and said that he wears a baseball cap around town and drives a mini cooper LOL

That's great! Ha ha. Never would have pictured him driving a Cooper, lol, and my dad's convinced that the cowboy hat was surgically attached to his head.

You made my evening, guys!

Ray Hunt was a little grumpy as well. Many people got thier feathers ruffled by Ray because he expected more of them than anyone had ever expected before. I think Reis is a lot the same way. The first clinic I ever went to was a Reis clinic. I am quite a bit taller than average and it gets pointed out to me often. I was a few minutes late and Dennis was sitting on the arena fence talking to the audience(about 100 people) and when I walked in he saw me and said "Wow! you're a tall drink of water." 200 eyes swung around and looked right at me. I was somewhat embarassed but he was pretty funny about it and we talked for a while after the clinic. he's a very nice man but he has very set opinions and if you argue them he will win.
