Walkabout Tour Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a Tour and a Clinic?
The Walkabout Tour is great fun – it is two days of equine entertainment at its best. Combining demonstrations, instruction and audience participation, the Walkabout Tour is a horse lover’s extravaganza. The tour is hosted by world renowned clinician and television celebrity Clinton Anderson. This is a great opportunity for people to experience first hand Clinton’s method of training horses. Clinton demonstrates the horse’s athleticism and intelligence with inspiring demonstrations using his personal horses. He also uses local, untrained horses to demonstrate how he teaches his techniques. The tour is kind of like going to a concert – there’s music, lights and action. The only difference is that when you leave you’ll have a greater understanding of how your horse learns and how you should interact with your horse to get results.

A Clinton Anderson Clinic is a multi-day event hosted by Clinton. Thirty participants and their horses spend multiple days learning Clinton’s Method both on the ground and under saddle. During the clinic, participants cover the exercises highlighted in Clinton’s educational Method kits – Fundamentals, Intermediate or Advanced, depending on the level of the clinic. Clinton also utilizes assistants so that there are always multiple sets of eyes watching your progress to ensure that you are on the right track.

Does the same thing happen on Saturday and Sunday?

Will I get a chance to meet Clinton?
Yes. Clinton schedules time throughout the weekend to meet horse lovers and sign autographs.
What horses are used on the tour?
Clinton brings his personal horses to every tour to perform advanced riding and groundwork demonstrations. The horses Clinton works with have been trained through the Fundamentals, Intermediate and Advanced levels of the Method and highlight the rewarding partnership that can be achieved between a horse and human. Phoenix, Clinton’s miniature horse, also comes to every tour. You’re sure to meet him while waiting to enter the facility.
Clinton also uses local horses with longstanding problems at each tour to best demonstrate how to begin the Method. These horses are selected by the Downunder Horsemanship team from an online application. The very first time Clinton meets the horses is when they enter the arena and are introduced to the crowd at the tour.
