Clinton Anderson, because I use his training methods and it's done wonders for my Gelding and I. I haven't seen any or Parelli's stuff or read his books though, so I'm not making an informed decision =)

Well, I am NOT a fan of Pat's. I tried his stuff once and couldn't get past all of the garbage. I have tried some of Clintons stuff, and have a lot of his groundwork dvd's. What I have done works well for me. I do not follow a single trainer though. There are plenty of other good trainers out there.

If those two guys were the only options in the world, I'd take Clinton. I don't know that much about his methods or whether I would personally like them or the guy himself, but from simply watching video clips I think he's more capable. I think he could take my horse further in the direction I'd want to go. His quality of riding is better and I've generally liked the look and feel of CA trained horses better.

no one like pat except nokota why does no one like him?
Simple. He can't ride a stick horse to the well, he plows around on his horse's face like a caveman, he markets trick training under horsemanship and MANY of the horses trained with his methods are cranky and disrespectful...

Um.. I've been riding horses my entire life, and training professionally for quite a few years now. I work for ranches and spend every waking hour in the saddle. From night calving all night, to day working, to riding colts for people. I can ride, and if you ride bridle horses, you must be able to ride and have very light hands. So your immature comment is pretty incorrect in my book, but if you want to follow a guy with bad hands and poor riding ability, be my guest...

Not sure where this came from. What Wanstrom stated about PP is correct. He can not ride to save his live. His hands are like a brick on the end of the reins. He pulls his horses around like a tow truck. Now if you want a trick trained horse. He's your guy.

Pat. He did work my horse and did an absolutely amazing job with her. I was mesmerized watching him with her. He was firm when he had to be, but compassionate and tactful. I would be honored any day of the week to turn any of my hoses over to Pat. :D
I am going to save that picture! It's amazing :D

See that is the problem. You should not need your hands to get a horse to stop.

As for the other part. Ya? Not sure how big a deal that is. It is what you do with the horse while doing all that.

This is the way I look at it. Riding with out a saddle or bridle is basically the end result of good training if you put that into actually doing something past loping around. IE what Stacy did. Past that it is nothing more then trick riding. Same as you would see in the circus.

... This is all I have to say.. Btw, notice how he likes to exaggerate? He does that whenever he's teaching someone. I know cuz we do it too to explain things better.

the way i see it is that we all use are horses for different things, we also all learn differently. just because you dont like a particular method does not mean it doesnt work for someone else, or it wont help someone else. i really like CA, but i dont 'follow' him exclusively bc i event, he obviously does not ! that doesnt mean i havent learned anything from him, but he cant teach me everything.

luckily there is more than one trainer in the world and we can pick who we want to follow.
