He seems to be a go-getter but he sings a different tune now it seems. I would kill for his sitting trot capabilities.

My trainer is a student of his, he seems like a great trainer if he's produced students like her! (she's getting ready to run a CCI***)

I don't like his riding at all, I also don't think what he is saying will actually help others achieve it as lots is going on which is part of him riding and to do with his use of his body and his bear down and no explanation to others how to do that.

Hardly fair to judge the man when all you have seen is what is obviously an edited video.

Actually, after watching this video I improved with my horse quite a bit. Gave me another perspective. I saw all I needed to see without a "how to" list.

I enjoyed it

hmm hard to tell if hes really changed from a video...ive seen him push riders and horses way passed what they can take. even to the point of injury.

no offense meant ! but i have seen him in action. his brother is similar in the way that he will let people jump higher or compete at a higher level than they are ready for.

See.. that's just asking for trouble :/ So much can go wrong for both horse and rider.

Though I have met people that think {you're} a bad instructor for not letting them jump when they can't even sit a trot or whatnot. They change instructors to someone who will let them, despite them being ready.

Drives me crazy...
