Meet the Author


Clinton Anderson was born and raised in Australia, where at the age of six his family recognized a natural ability with horses and cultivated his interest, buying him his first horse at age nine. When he was fifteen, he started apprenticeships with nationally acclaimed horse trainers, Gordon McKinlay and, later, Ian Francis. He travels extensively--conducting clinics and appearing as a headlining speaker at many of the major equine events throughout North America. He lives at his new ranch in Stephensville, Texas.

    Great book

    I enjoyed reading this book! If you are a Clinton Anderson fan, it is worth your money. If you are like me, I am more of a visual person, so I have to read to understand what he's saying-It goes into more details on his techniques then what you may find on his tv shows or clinics. The illustrations were very helpful as it showed step by step on the exercise. I think it is a great/useful book for any discipline or any level of riding. I just wish I had a horse of my own to try this stuff on! :-)

    Very informative

    I like Clinton Anderson because he teaches a horse to use the 'thinking' side of the brain as opposed to the 'reacting' side. He doesn't want you to own a plug horse, but to form an actual partnership with your horse. I really appreciate that he teaches you to get after a horse that's misbehaving and for them to think about their mistakes as opposed to just punishing them for doing the wrong thing. He's a great instructor and I hope he puts out more books!

    Fantastic Book

    It is often hard to find books on Natural Horsemanship. What is mostly out there are DVDs, so it is wonderful that Clinton decided to write a book on his techniques. I found this book very thorough and appreciated his explanations of the methods. The 2 women featured in this book were 2 very lucky women, who greatly benefited from the intense week of book making. Their comments on the techniques allow you to correct yourself at home while trying to do these same things with your own horses.

    Super Book

    My Husband and I read this book together. I got to say this book was a very interesting book and it was a great value (dollar wise). We both learned some new ideas about horsemanship. I purchased this book really for my husband to learn more about training horses and to my surprise I learned quite a bit from this book too. My husband has been around horses about 25 years and I have been around horses all of my life. I was raised on a horse ranch and my Father was a horse trainer. He trained horses the old style with the ground work in a corral and then just getting on ready or not then he changed to the a round pen style, even before the round was in stye and working with the horses behavior and in a very caring way. I had really learned alot from my Father and this book was leaning towards what my Father was teachings many years ago. I think even my Dad would have to agree on these methods and I am sure that he would have learned something from Clinton Anderson. This is a great book and I would recommend this book to even the older horseman. Clinton if you read this review all I got to say is Thank you very much!
