Are you looking for NH videos?
I personally like Parelli because they break it down so that it's relatively easy to learn.
If you're going to buy a DVD set I would get the Level 1 disc set to start off with. It's worth the money. There are cheaper ones on the site but trust me, the Level 1 stuff explains it SOOO much better & makes it easy to follow.
If you have the cash you could also join the club. I think it's $23 a month or $200 for the year. They send you free DVDs & magazines & you get a big discount on all the stuff.
I've been working both my horses using these techniques & they're doing awesome.

I like Clinton Anderson DVDs, but like all the rest they are expensive. He's very straight forward and shows you the ins and outs. I usually rent what I need at giddyupflix.com.

Elnaturel, since everything is so expensive....

Why don't you go to youtube and watch some first. If I'm curious about something or stumped I always go there first. Just plug in what, say Pat Parelli and beginner rider, or John Lyons and first horse, CA and respect, or just plug in beginning rider help, and you'll get a slew of all kinds of videos from all kinds of people. Then you can see what style you seem to like the best. I've learned everything on there from 'how to tell if your horse is cinchy' to how to tie mecate reins. There is a wealth of free info there, sometimes too much. I go and get lost sometimes for hours, LOLOL

Could you just go to the closest barn (if there are any around) and watch some lessons (for free)? This way you can also ask the trainer after the lesson if you were confused about something or didn't understand. All trainers I know have no problem with it (in fact I did it myself).

Of course taking lessons yourself is the best. The problem with DVDs for the beginner rider is that you can't learn how to ride watching them, and in some cases they give a false feeling that "you know it all" (by you I mean general you).

If you absolutely want DVDs you can look into Clinton Anderson or Stacy Westfall (although those DVDs are pricey).

I agree with Kitten_val try to find someone who teaches lessons nearby and see if it's something you really are going to enjoy before spending money on expensive DVDs
Clinton anderson I think is great but I think you would get more out of it if you took some lessons first got down the basics and learned some horse termonology before hand.
