Affordable training series?

I’m sure this has been asked at some point, but do you guys have a recommendation for a “how to train your horse”/“new owner” video series?

Considering Clinton Anderson, but it seems kind of pricey. Though I guess the month-to-month isnt too bad.

What do you think is best?

I haven't bought it myself, but I really like Warwick Schiller from his YouTube videos, and I know he sells access to his online collection - $30 a month. I'm not particularly a fan of Clinton Anderson, but that's just me.

Definitely look into Warwick Schiller. CA has his merits, but also some pretty serious drawbacks (primarily as a person, but he has a few major ones as a horseman as well).

Warwick Schiller subscription ($25 says but I'm in UK) even if you just use it for one month and cancel it has legit EVERYTHING you need and his empathetic approach is amazing. There is a step by step method to follow and I basically studied and made notes in case I ever needed them. Fortunately my mare is a sweetheart and I had staff on hand to help me as I was new to ownership. But if you are completely alone... then all the videos/examples he has can pretty much not only address each individual issue but teach you how to figure out approaches yourself (which helped me the most with horses specifically). I recommend having the means to record your training sessions so you can spot if you make any strange movements that might confuse the horse as at the end of the day it is a language.

As for the others... far too expensive. Too many ads within their actual videos that made me cringe hard. No way would I support that. Warwick at least offered some really good content for free on you tube where some of the others were teasers and no help for anyone that doesn't have money to throw. Its why I recommend him a lot to people even those that dont own.

Are you saying, @Kalraii , that Clinton Anderson has adverts inside his videos???!! the ones that are sold ? I just assumed that only the short, free online ones might contain adverts. Crazy!

If you are training a blank slate, baby horse, then get an experienced person to work with you. The video series are good for 'tune ups', and to train the human, but for a baby, I would prefer to not be making all my learning mistakes on that open canvas.

@tinyliny no just the youtube ones - I found it excessive watching youtube ads then a minute long ads within the video as to me the video short and its content IS the advertisement. I just found it so obnoxious >.< I don't mind a quick mention of their website and services for promotion but MULTIPLE heavily edited scenes with obnoxious music throughout it... that's just screaming at me to run away hah! I'm sure he gets the job done but honestly I don't get the impression from him or the way he promotes himself/his services to be very honest or from the heart. With Warwick and some others you can really feel their passion even through the screen (not saying CA did or doesn't have its just not obvious with all the sales marketing).

I think that CA and WS both have similar theories and techniques but CA comes off to me as an angry young man in general. Like he has a real potential to blow up on a horse. WS has a much calmer demeanor and is a thinker rather than a reactor. These are just my opinions of both of the men's general characters. If there were only two horse trainers on earth and I had to bring my horse to one of them, it would be WS hands down.

I think that Warwick Schiller's video series, that you can pay a monthly fee to see everything, is very reasonably priced. You can also cancel your subscription at any time you choose. I have read that he is pretty good at answering questions that you may have on his FB page as well.

Warwick Schiller subscription. He is heads and tails a better, more humane trainer than CA.

Thanks guys. I signed up for Warwick Schiller. Been watching the vids. They are helpful already!

Turns out that he was who I was thinking of—not Clinton Anderson. I’d gotten the two names confused in my head. :)
