I like him, i like everyone. I like to take something from each trainer i watch seminars with an read about. Its always good to look at each side of every way of training a horse, to learn an gain new ways of doing things an to better yourself and your horse. Im big into NH in alot of ways, but then again im not. Parelli is too commercialized but alot of what he has to say is interesting an needs to be taken into consideration, along with Clinton. Never hurts to listen to everyone an to be open minded!

I think he's pretty good. I actually went to a clinic today in Shelbyville of his. It was fun and I learned some new stuff.

I have to say out of all the natural horsemanship trainers I've seen, he's one I prefer. I think his methods are very easy to understand whether you're a beginner or advanced. I just wish the DVDs weren't nearly so expensive -- it makes it hard to afford.

I wanna buy all his dvd's but they are so dang pricey. I was gonna get groundwork series 1, but I found his book "downunder horsmanship" in the book store. And all the exercises in that first series are in the book. But from watching his tv show and reading the book I've realized it's much easier to see what he is trying to teach rather than read it. Such as one of the exercises of disengaging the hindquarters stage two. I watched the tv show and saw it happen, but while reading the book it really didn't explain enough how you really tap/whack the hindquarters to get the horse to put some energy into the disengage. In the book it says "when the horse begins to disengage his hindquarters, tap with more energy. Tap until the horse swings his hindquarter away from you and turns to face you with both eyes". And in the tv show you can SEE how much "more energy" really is. In the tv show it's really a whack on the hindquarters to get the horse to turn and face you NOW. So I'm kinda thinking about getting series 1 just to make sure I understand fully what's being conveyed. But to get all three series is EXPENSIVE. I've been watching ebay, but sometimes I would prefer buying the new dvd so I KNOW that if there's any problems I can return em and have em replaced.

Anyhow, those are my comments on clinton anderson. I watch parelli too on tv and have his book "natural horse-man-ship". And I don't know if I enjoy clinton more cus he has a longer eposide on tv to teach or if it's his simple to understand style. So I could like other trainers more or the same if only I was able to preview em on tv. I really wish they had more trainers actually training on tv like clinton does. But for now I beleive I'm gonna learn from clinton anderson. But it also seems that all the trainers selling informational dvd's charge an arm and a leg. It's as if one needs to pick up a side job just to afford the darn dvd's. "don't these trainers understand that all that bailout money went to the super-wealthy and none of the average persons fleeced their pockets with it?" LOL

I think there is a phenomena in our country where we view something that is expensive as more valuable. The more a clinician charges for his DVD's the more valuable they are. The more the tuition to the college, the better the education. It's sad but true and that is why they charge so much.
