I like the basics of Pat and Jonathan but in the end you will find out what works best for you and your horse and as each horse is different it is a good idea to check out youtube and get some ideas and understandings and practice it with your horse and see how it is going. Me and my partner trained horses for years and every time we realize that each horse needs to be treated differently! I have no certification and I believe that the result of my horses behaviour is my certification. Find out what it takes to be the leader in the relationship with your horse and have a firm but understanding hand! You will enjoy working this way with your horse and in my opinion it is not just a way of training your horse it kind of is a lifestyle! Love what you do and be patient with yourself and the horse. Enjoy it and take your time! I am sure you will soon find out what works best for you and your horse and I would love the hear of some results :0) Cheers and enjoy the training!!!!!

I totally agree Island Horselover!
Youtube (or ''Youboob'' as some adolescents like to call it ) is great. There is so much information readily available nowadays. Learning never stops no matter what level you are at. Enjoy the journey and listen to your horse.

For the money, as mentioned by usandpets, the Clinton Anderson No Worries Club would be a great option. For about $20/month, you can log on any time and visit the forums, watch TV shows, DVDs and a question and answer page. There are two complete series of taking a horse from round penning to saddle trained. The "Trickey" series and the "Cider" series. I have been a member for 3 years now and am totally addicted!

I don't follow one particular trainer. But from what I have seen (and I've seen alot) Chris Cox is my personal favorite...not trying to start another bash thread (as there are MANY already) but I would avoid Rick Gore like the plague if I were you. He just called me an idiot on youtube for asking a simple question that he could not obviously answer. Very professional, SMH!!

There are a few on HRTV that seem pretty worthwhile. I've learned quite a bit from Richard Winters and Al Dunning. There's a ton available on youtube from trainers who have alot of knowledge and ability, but don't have quite the marketing skills as the big name people. You have to be somewhat selective and use some common sense when choosing whose methods and techniques to use. There's alot of good information available but there are also some clowns who use the round pen for a stage.

That man is the worst trainer I have ever seen. He has no seat no hands and his horses are disrespectful. What he does spout out of his mouth is stollen from other proven trainers.

I will agree if you are wanting to learn what NOT do to he would be a good one to watch.

If you are looking for a trainer who puts out DVDs the ones I would recomend are Les Voit, Shawn Flarida, Stacy Westfall, Al Dunning. This is just a short list but ALL these trainers are well proven that what they do work. It is not just a sales gimmic it works.

Horse trainers

It really is all about your horse and what you as a rider want from it and what you are both capable of at any point in time. If you search a particular thing on Youtube you will get more results than you can 'shake a stick at'. Be selective and go for the ones that make things plain and clear to understand and a good trainer is one who's own horses and riding are a testimony to him/her. You might find that taking different things from different videos works best for you and your horse
Beware there are a LOT of smoke & mirror tricks out there and many of the horses they use in these videos are already well trained, very smart or very placid. Don't be depressed if you don't get immediate results, these guys have been doing this stuff for years and know all the tricks, they also know how to stay out of trouble. What some horses can pick up in a few hours others can take months which is when having a fresh approach from a new source can come in really handy
I will also echo some other remarks made here - avoid Rick Gore unless you just want to become part of a fan club that hates anyone who doesn't share his narrow minded opinions.

I'm a die hard fan of Carolyn Resnick's and Cynthia Royal's methods which are similar. This is all based on trust, not just compliance, the direction the Parelli's are now teaching.

I follow Parelli mostly but I've looked into several others. I like the way their system is laid out as it is easy to follow and they really break it down.
My suggestion, however, would be to look into as many as you can, take what you feel you can use/ what makes sense to you and apply it. Don't follow just one trainer like a cult memer. They ALL have good and bad points.
Youtube is a good place to start, but many of them don't have indepth vidoes on them, usually just the training showing what their horse can do.
Books are also a good, cheap way to get a foothold in any NH program. This way you can decide whether you like the persons methods before going further with your money ;)
