Horse trainers on YouTube

Hello all,
Not sure if this is the right place for this post. But I am looking for some horse trainers on YouTube that I could watch. I've recently been gone for a few months for college. Now during quarantine, I am back. My horse has lost respect for me and I've established that our on the ground liberty training isn't where it should be. My horse is also very buddy sour (most likely from the lack of respect for me). So I'd like to start her from the beginning again of doing round penning and working our way up so we can keep doing liberty and trick training, as well as to improve our riding. Are there any trainers on YouTube that I can watch where they show a lot of round pen training and some trainers that also show how to liberty train from the beginning? Any recommendations are very appreciated!

West Taylor, Warwick Schiller and Mark Langley have been the most helpful for me and my two horses.

There aren't many that give away information for free on youtube. For the most part the youtube platform should be considered as advertisements for an actual program that costs money to access.

Clinton Anderson is a hot subject on this forum in more ways than one. Frankly, nobody else has the kind of concise no bullcrap approach to fixing problems with horses for a lower cost. I've seen a lot of them and one thing that sets CA apart is that he will show you everything, and not just the well behaved horse after it has been knocked around behind the barn.

Whatever trainer/guru you pick it is very important that you don't jump around and come up with a "frankenprogram" from 18 different youtube horseman. I've seen a lot of these people and although well meaning, they have missed key parts of what horse training is about and are mediocre at best on nearly all of it.

what were you doing before, and why do you think it has 'gone south', so to speak? explain the things that are happening that give you to say/think that your horse no longer 'respects' you?

who handles your horse on a daily basis? while you were gone?

has his/her life changed a lot recently? such as type of boarding, equine companions, food, riding /exersize amount . . . . Consider the whole picture.

tell us about your horse's personality, too. if you don't mind.

Another one for Warwick Schiller. Also an Aussie guy, Ken Faulkner is great. Not sure how much free he has on youtube, but you can subscribe to his site for pittance, for many vids, and ATM he's putting a lot of bits & pieces on FB.

My advice would be to watch Warwick Schiller, he has a lot of free videos and his techniques are so solid that I have learned a lot from his short free videos. So much so that I am going to buy his training programme just as a way to show my gratitude for all the unwitting help he has given me over the last year or so.

Itís not trick training but for good real world training tips on youtube I would consider looking at Pat Puckett or Tristan Baroni of Meyer Company Ranch Horses. Baroni does a real good job of explaining how and why you do what you do to advance a horse or fix problems.

Have you watched Sam VanFleet? She has a few good liberty informational videos and I’ve learned a lot watching her videos starting mustangs. She has more respect for horse than CA does. My mare responded tremendously well using her techniques after bombing following CA.

I like Scott Purdham
