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
