Clinton has a strong respect for the military and all servicemen and women. Over the years, he’s had the privilege of working with active-duty and retired service members. When he visited the Caisson Platoon of the U.S. Army’s 3rd Infantry Regiment in 2011, the training session was filmed for a No Worries Club video titled, “Clinton Helps the Old Guard.”
Besides getting a behind-the-scenes look at how the platoon takes part in ceremonial military funerals, Clinton works with the soldiers to help them solve two specific training cases. One horse is scared of the caisson that is pulled in the ceremonies, and another horse is very reactive and spooky in general, making him almost uncontrollable.
Using the Method, Clinton gives the soldiers the knowledge and tools to help both horses learn how to use the thinking side of their brains and overcome their specific problems. Not only do the horses become reliable partners able to fulfill their duties, but the soldiers learn how to better communicate with them.
Packed full of training advice, especially geared towards spooky horses, and the makeup of one of the U.S.’s most respected military units, the lesson is as much instructional as it is inspirational.
Watch the full-length video, “Clinton Helps the Old Guard” on the Downunder Horsemanship app or the No Worries Club website. The video can be found in the NWC Video category.
