I love everything about the Method

I love everything about the Method. I have been riding my whole life, and I love being able to learn more and love improving my own skills! Best thing about it - my 8 and 10 year old daughters love to watch too. They are learning even more than I taught them about safety first, and it's awesome to watch them bond so much more with their horses!

I absolutely love his no-fluff attitude

His method is easy to understand, and I absolutely love his no-fluff attitude. Just like he says, training needs to be black and white with no shades of gray! Everything he says and does just makes sense to me, and I'm glad I bought the series. Can't wait to make my way through them! Learn something new every time I watch his DVDs, whether it's on the No Worries Club website or his training series.

Changed my horse for the better!

Changed my horse for the better! Helped me, too. I was ready to give up on my mare until I tried the Method!

Great job, Clinton, in the teaching on the DVD sets!

I'm learning about horses and horsemanship before I get a horse. Friends lent me the Fundamentals set. WOW! All the questions I have when actually DOING the groundwork and riding are entirely explained so far. Great job, Clinton, in the teaching on the DVD sets!

With Clinton’s method, we are doing great!

Amazing. I started a 7-year-old mare that I bought as a 2-year-old. Due to a sick family member, I never got her started and people told me I should turn her into a broodmare. They all said she was too old, too hot and too strong to be started, but I didn't want to give up on her. I followed Clinton's colt starting method, and I'm happy to say I've been riding her for just about five months now. With Clinton's method, we are doing great!
