    I'm not a fan of Clinton Anderson, I think the bottom line of his method is "Scare the horse into submission". However, I'm curious to hear other people's point of view on him. What's your opinion on him, and why or why not are you a fan of his method?

    This is a query to those with experience in CA's training method. I have had an 11 yr old OTTB for about 1 1/2 yrs. We have had our ups and downs, with the downs revolving around disrespect toward me (ie, balking, spooking or bolting to evade work, being "pushy"). He is not like this with my...

    So i have already posted about CA. but i now have a question for people who use his method often and are VERY familiar with it. Like myself. One of the things i hear Clinton say a lot, its kind of one of his slogans, is "Treat every horse the same regardless of breed, past, training, color...

    To give you a background - I have been riding for many years. I have a nothing fancy approach with our horses, nothing competitive, just riding around the farm mostly. Bareback a lot and some trail riding. Lately I've been wanting to learn a bit more and try some new things. Ive read a...

    I am working with a horse that is a very fast learner. She had nailed down Yeilding the hindquarters and lunging (I don't have access to a roundpen so I have to lunge her instead) in 2 days. But she is very stubborn when she wants to be. She doesn't want to back up. The only time she will back...

    I have noticed on this forum that people either hate or like Anderson. So I thought that I would start a thread about him for a discussion. Why do you like him, or why do you not like him? Please give factual reasons, not just opinions. What do you think he does correctly, or incorrectly? Eager...

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone has the fundamentals kit and CDs. I have been watching his youtube videos and working my horse with the techniques he uses and it has worked wonders. The entire kit is very expensive, ($400) and I simply cannot afford it, but I really want to start and learn...

    I am currently working with a 5 year old mustang who was captured out in Missouri a few years ago, he is a gelding but was gelded at a older age then typical. He will let people pet him now and feed him out of your hand if you are slow and patient, so he is some what used to people but he is...

    Hi! I recently bought a 6 yr old Friesian/Shire gelding cross. He's a big wonderful guy. In the 3 weeks I have had him he has been doing a very well but with a few huge exceptions. He is a giant chicken. If I take him into the indoor arena he gets very nervous. The first time he went in...

    Hi everyone, I'm looking for opinions from those who train using Clinton Anderson's method. I love the method and have used it for quite some time, but do have a few questions. Please, no comments depicting the CA method. I have gotten a lot of results using it, but just need a few opinions...
  15. Horse Training
    I have only been watching CA on RFDTV and saw in his recent episode a bit about his patience pole. While I don't care about the marketing of his pole, I was curious to hear your thoughts on the idea of tieing a horse after a training session. It seems like a pretty good idea to not simply...

    Hi, We got our first pony for Christmas (15yr POA gelding) and he's wonderful. I'd like to work him using some of Clinton Andersen's methods, but I'm not sure I really want to invest in a Handy-Stick and wait for the shipping, etc. I was wondering if you knew of something that work that I...

    Hey Everyone, Just for starters I want to say that this thread is not for debating the validity of Clinton Anderson and his methods. I am already sold on his methods. I'm not a purist in that I do use and appreciate other clinicians methods, but Clinton Anderson is my favorite thus far. This is...
