If you don't have this, agreed with above and Clinton Anderson has an excellent foal training set of DVD's, WELL WORTH your money.


I have heard from several people that Clinton Anderson is the way to go and I'm really thinking about buying his training dvds. Thanks :)

Practice, practice, practice. Stay calm and relaxed. Don't get nervous or excited.
