Why Quarter Horses?

Almost all Signature Horses are Quarter Horses. As a breed, Quarter Horses aren’t known for being tall or massively built horses like a Thoroughbred or Warmblood. Clinton only selects horses with strong bones and great conformation. Most people think that a bigger horse is better, but in reality that’s not true. In fact, Clinton personally prefers smaller horses because it’s easier to get on and off of them and work around them in general. In fact, his motto is: It takes a great big horse to beat a good little one. A testament to that motto is Clinton’s mare, Mindy. At 14.1 hands, Mindy carried Clinton (5’11”) around for over 17 years without a problem, and Clinton didn’t look out of proportion on her.

Mares vs. Geldings

It has long been thought that geldings make better trail riding horses than mares, but nothing could be further from the truth. How well a horse rides and performs on the trail really depends on the individual horse. Sure, some geldings are better than some mares, and some mares are better than some geldings. Clinton carefully selects his Signature Horses, puts them through his entire method and weeds out horses that aren’t suitable, including horses with less than desirable dispositions or unwilling attitudes. Regardless of whether a Signature Horse is a mare or gelding, they all have the same pleasing disposition, willing attitudes and in-depth training. A gelding is not better than a mare, and a mare is not better than a gelding. In fact, by the time Clinton gives the Signature Horse his stamp of approval, you won’t be able to tell what sex the horse is; you’ll just have an unbelievably well-trained horse. If you are insistent about getting a gelding, please understand that it will take considerably longer for one to become available because more people prefer geldings over mares. Clinton personally prefers mares, and feels that a lot of great Signature Horse mares are getting looked over because people are being shortsighted.

Clinton’s Personal Guarantee

30-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee.

Not only does Clinton personally guarantee his Signature Horses with a 30-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee; he is personally involved in the selection process. With his years of experience helping thousands of horse owners train and improve their relationship with their horses, Clinton prides himself on using his insight to help people pick out the right horse. Not only does he have an eye for choosing quality horses, but he also has a practiced ability to match horses with people.

Then, when you arrive to pick up your Clinton Anderson Signature Horse, Clinton and/or his clinicians will spend the whole day with you, helping you get to know your horse and providing you with personal hands-on training – a $2,000 value! – designed to get your relationship with your new Signature Horse off to a perfect start. After this private training session with your horse, Clinton asks that you take your new partner for a ride – either on the trails at Clinton’s ranch or trailer him to a new location – to be sure of your compatibility. This “test drive” will also give you a chance to see how well your Signature Horse handles a new environment and negotiates obstacles on trails.

But that’s not all. When you buy a horse from most sellers, once you write the check you own the horse, good or bad. This is not the case when you buy a Clinton Anderson Signature Horse. Clinton’s commitment to standing behind his products extends without question to his Signature Horses.

By providing a 30-day trial period after you take your horse home, Clinton will make absolutely certain that you are more than pleased with your new equine partner. At the end of this period, he’ll even give you a call personally to check on you and your horse! If for any reason you seem to be unsatisfied with your Signature Horse, Clinton will give you your money back – no questions asked. Clinton’s personal guarantee also includes lifetime support from his clinicians any time you have questions or concerns about your horse.

Clinton believes that developing a relationship with your horse shouldn’t be rushed, and he encourages prospective Signature Horse buyers to take plenty of time to decide whether a Signature Horse is right for you. He and his clinicians are available to answer your questions and provide you with the best possible horse buying experience. While there is no pressure or rush about making the decision to buy a Clinton Anderson Signature Horse, there is a limited number of these amazing horses available each year, and our waiting list fills up fast, so if you think you may be interested in owning one of these horses sometime in the future, please give us a call now to reserve the opportunity to explore the idea further.

For a horse to graduate from the Clinton Anderson Signature Horse Program they have proven to us that they are a safe and reliable horse.
  • I am not a very experienced rider; will a Signature Horse suit me?

    Clinton is a firm believer that horses teach people and people teach horses – in that order. That’s why it’s so important to start your horsemanship journey on a well-trained horse that you can learn from as you build your confidence. With in-depth knowledge of the Method, a Clinton Anderson Signature Horse is the perfect beginner horse that can help teach you. Safe, respectful and attentive, these amazing horses will provide you with a fun and fulfilling learning experience.

    If you are looking for a performance horse, you can find out more about Clinton Anderson Performance Horses by clicking the Performance Horses tab.

  • Can I compete on the Signature Horse?
    A Signature Horse has not been trained for competition, however you can continue its training in your desired discipline. If you are looking for a trained performance horse, find out more about Clinton Anderson’s Performance Horses by clicking the Performance Horses tab.
  • Can I see pictures of the horses that are currently being trained in the Signature Horse Program?

    No. Horses may be dropped out of Signature Horse training if they display any tendencies that do not meet our strict Signature Horse requirements. We will only show you a photo of a Signature Horse when we are certain that it has what it takes to be a Signature Horse.

  • Can I choose the color and sex of my Signature Horse?

    Yes. If you are patient we can find the horse that's the right color and sex for you. The problem with doing this is that you may have to wait a lot longer for that horse to become available. Remember, Clinton hand selects every horse that enters the Signature Horse Program. If at any time the horse does not live up to the expectations of a Signature Horse it will be dropped from the program and we will start the process again. If you specifically want a palomino gelding then that's what you should ask for, but be prepared to wait for one to become available.

    All the horses that graduate from the Signature Horse Program, regardless of whether they are a mare or gelding, will act the same; they are all good minded.

  • Are geldings better than mares?

    It has long been thought that geldings make better trail riding horses than mares, but nothing could be further from the truth. How well a horse rides and performs on the trail really depends on the individual horse. Sure, some geldings are better than some mares, and some mares are better than some geldings.

A gelding is not better than a mare, and a mare is not better than a gelding. In fact, by the time Clinton gives the Signature Horse his stamp of approval, you won’t be able to tell what sex the horse is; you’ll just have an unbelievably well-trained horse. If you are insistent about getting a gelding, please understand that it will take considerably longer for one to become available because more people prefer geldings over mares. Clinton personally prefers mares, and feels that a lot of great Signature Horse mares are getting looked over because people are being short-sighted.

  • What is the typical size of a Signature Horse?

    The typical size of a Signature Horse is between 14.2 hands and 15.2 hands. All Signature Horses are Quarter Horses. As a breed, Quarter Horses aren’t known for being tall or massively built horses like a Thoroughbred or Warmblood. Clinton only selects horses with strong bones and great conformation. Most people think that a bigger horse is better, but in reality that’s not true. In fact, Clinton personally prefers smaller horses because it’s easier to get on and off of them and work around them in general.

At 14.1 hands, Mindy carried Clinton (5’11”) around for over 17 years without a problem, and Clinton didn’t look out of proportion on her.

  • What is the average age of a Signature Horse?
    On average, the Signature Horses are between 4 and 8 years old.
  • Can I send my horse to you to get trained to be a Signature Horse?
    No. Not every horse is suited to being a Signature Horse, and due to their intensive training we do not have the manpower to train any more horses than we already do. Every Signature Horse will clock up a lot of miles with a clinician. The only way you can get a Signature Horse is to buy one directly from Clinton Anderson through the Signature Horse Program.
  • I'm at the top of the waiting list, what if I don't like the photo of the Signature Horse that you have sent me?
    No worries. You’ll stay at the top of the list and when the next Signature Horse is ready to find a new home, we’ll send you a photo of it.
  • What happens when I go to try the horse at your ranch?
    You will spend the entire day with one of Clinton’s clinicians getting to know the Signature Horse. You will receive a lesson from the clinician, go on a trail ride and have the opportunity to take the horse off the ranch. After this private training session, Clinton and the clinician will assess your compatibility with the horse. If you are a match and you like the horse, you may purchase the horse.
  • I have heard that you won't sell a horse just because someone wants to buy it. Is that true?
    Yes. After you visit the ranch to try the horse, if Clinton or one of his clinicians does not feel like you and the horse are a perfect match, he will not sell it to you. You will be placed back at the top of the waiting list and notified when a more suitable horse becomes available.
  • What if I go to the ranch and I don't like the Signature Horse?
    You have no obligation to buy the horse. We hope that you will have enjoyed your day at the ranch and that you have benefitted from the free lesson with the clinician. This is a no pressure situation; we only want you to buy a horse if it’s a perfect match for you.
  • What happens if I don't like the horse after I get him home?

    Signature Horses come with Clinton's personal guarantee. If you do not like the horse and it is still in the same physical condition that you bought it in, you can return it within 30 days.
