I love him! He makes his method very easy to follow/understand. His method is also very to the point. He is by far my favorite, however, I don't ONLY use his techniques. I use a little bit of everything. Every horse is different, every person is different.

I just looked at that link posted and watched a few minutes of one of the videos. Wow! He is pretty glitzy.

I reckon he's an American/Australian version of Parelli. Pretty much the same stuff.... without all the P words!

Oh yeah, and as an Australian, his 'down under horsemanship' grates on me too, when he seems to try so hard to be American!

I have read and watched many of the top tier guys and what they all do better than anyone else is market themselves, not train horses. Don't get me wrong they are all good trainers and CA is great, but they aren't any better than my stepdad, just better marketed.

Since reading a particular book I hate marketing!! In the book, the bad guy, who was a marketing genius, said that the true mark of a great marketing plan is when you can take the most plentiful substance on earth, a substance that is available in every home, and sell it to the same people for more money than premium gasoline. The product was of course bottled water..

That is what these guys do, they dress up their product in catchy terminology and sell you their plan and products that you could get at a decent feed store for 1/3 the price and techniques you can learn from any one of a number of lesser known trainers at a local clinic. Or like the troubleshooter I use for $25 an hour..
Watch and read them all, but don't drink the koolaid. No matter what you do you will always be your horse's main trainer, like it or not. Therefore you owe your horse to become the best trainer you can. CA can help but so can a bunch of others.

And both CA and PP got their butts handed to them by Chris Cox at the Road to the Horse was kinda funny to see them both humbled that way.
loosie and waresbear like this.

Can't recommend giddyupflix enough! Great way to watch and decide if a trainer is worth your time. I have just finished auditing CA's horsemanship 101 series. I wanted some training materials for my beginner spouse to look at. I liked him, didn't always agree with how he does things but my husband got a lot out of it.
