I like both and can't decide who's disc to get

Neither...but that's just my personal opinion. I don't care for any of the "Hollywood" trainers.

Hollywood?

Out of all of the trainers we have had at our expo, these are two of the most down to earth people.

What direction do you want to go with your horse? If you are interested in Cutting and cow horses? Then Cris Cox would be better, but I like Les Vogt much better. Like his way of starting horses, too.

If you are wanting to do rail classes, equitation and showmanship, Julie Goodnight would be better. But, I think there are others out there that are better at that, too. Richard Shrake is good at teaching all around showing skills. Al Dunning is good.

Hollywood, as in the trainers that are out there making videos, selling their wares, doing clinic after clinic after clinic, instead of actually training horses 24/7.

Sorry, I have no use for any of them, but like I said earlier...that's my opinion. A trainer is someone who actually puts their hands on clients horses on a daily basis, swings a leg over on a daily basis, and does some actual training which in turn, puts out a product for their clients. These people mentioned, may be down to earth, but they I don't consider them trainers.

Now Al is a trainer.....he does it for a living!! I met the man at an AQHA convention many years ago. The guy actually trains horses, produces show horses for clients etc.

Richard Shrake and Julie Goodnight, if you want to show...I would not look to them for rail, eq or showmanship. They aren't out on the show circuit with clients and their horses and are not current at all when it comes to what is happening at shows.

They've paid their dues in the daily client horse category. That is how they made their name to attract the marketing companies.

I'm very fortunate to work with 3-6 of the 'hollywood' trainers for our expo every year. They show their true colors very quickly.
