Wow great deal on your pen. I started out with a 40 ft and then added to it the next year. I love Clinton's methods and think they have worked wonders, but geez....rip off much?

He's got a lot of ground to cover if he's going to try and catch up to the Parelli Money Machine.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Very true! I just can't believe people actually buy all that stuff!

Agreed I love love both of there methods but it seems kinda ridiculous I get my rope halter 14 ft lead and my training stick for half of what they ask for even a simple rope halter. Really come on people!

The only thing that comes between me and my horse is the saddle!<3

We made our own long lead and Aussie Tie. Our Tie cost about $2.50 to make. I found a gal on Ebay that sells the rope halters for under 20 bucks.

I've never used one of the sticks from Rod's but I have used a Carrot Stick and Dennis Reis's version of the Carrot Stick. What I find that I like about the carrot stick is the weight. None of the others that I've had an opportunity to use have been quite as heavy nor as balanced. I like the Carrot Stick really well, especially as opposed to using a normal lunge whip, I find I reach for the carrot stick first almost every time.

I got fed up with all the glitches I ran into on the CA website so I didn't see anything but the Aussie Stock Whip and I've not used one of those.

Yeah I haven't touched the lunge whip since I got mine. Like I said I didn't really see a difference between the one I used and rods. :) and I get my rope halter from TS around $15

Clinton is also selling a patience pole. A pole with a swivel at the top where you tie the horse to.

A friend bought me a PP carrot stick and bought myself a generic ebay knockoff(I'm a tightwad too) I like them both equally well, the PP stick is a little heavier and doesn't taper at the string end. The only complaint I would have about the generic is that the string that came with it was really light and made from a courser material and it pulled my horse's hair when I would stroke him with it, so I had to order another string from my favorite rope supplier, CB Knots.

I have seen a CA handy stick, and instead of having a leather loop at the end for the string to go through, it has a moulded plastic loop. Stacy Westfall endorses a stick made by Weaver Leather that is very much like the generic stick I have, but it comes with a higher quality string, and it is very reasonably priced in most tack catalogs.
