About 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 ranchin Stephensville, Texas.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book pretty much repeats what he teaches in his groundwork dvd's and also some of his horsemanship dvd's. If you can follow this book without the DVD's, your wallet will thank you! It can also save you on taking your own notes and is much prettier with full colour photos. In the book itself, Clinton does do a good job trying to explain the technique using words and pictures. He also lists the tools you need, common handler mistakes, common horse problems, troubleshooting and tips for success. The anicdotes from beginners learning the exercises for the first time, also provides additional insight to help the reader. This is great to take to the barn as a quick reference.

However, words are words, and some stuff is left for you to figure out. If you struggle with understanding the techniques via text only, then you may want to purchase his DVD series. Some of the more detailed things he get's into in the videos, including dealing with spooky horses or dealing with highly disrespectful horses are simply not there in the text. It's also nice to see how the various horses react so you know what to expect. But Clinton does his best to sort out the issues you may encounter.

Aside from that, I highly recommend this book for anyone; there are many times when I have borrowed horses wishing that they knew how to do a one rein stop or act more respectful on the ground. Everyone should have a horse that can do these exercises, regardless of which trainer you pick to learn from.

I bought this book and read it through, cover to cover. It follows a natural progression of exercises with your horse. The techniques are valid for any rider of any dicipline - english, western or australian, and it uses the experiences of two different riders, one English and one Western. It not only explains the exercises clearly, it also lets you know of any problems you may encounter and how to fix them.
I am facinated by Clinton Anderson's techniques and can't wait to try them out with my horse to see the results.
I highly recommend this book.

Clinton Anderson covers the fundamentals of groundwork so well in this book. A great alternative to buying expensive DVD sets on establishing respect. It covers all disciplines of riding, and it truly does work! My horse and I are experiencing a partnership like never before based on the techniques in this book. The techniques are set in building block form to bring the highest chances of success and learning for your horse. I swear by his method and I will never go back to anything else.

This book reviews Clinton's system in detail so that it can be used as a review of any specific exercise: the goal, the steps. It is a great supplement to carrying his little arena-mate booklets when I make my plan for riding my horse.

All his methods worked for me. I have looked at several trainers and Clint's methods made the most sense to me. I recommend this to anyone training a green horse or a horse who needs retraining.
