Clinton Anderson's training techniques can achieve amazing results with almost any horse. Now you can learn the program that teaches "everyday people" how to better communicate with their mounts.
Real horses, real riders, real problems and real solutions.
Starting with a basic understanding of horse psychology, Clinton Anderson insists that you know why horses do the things they do before you try to train them, he presents a realistic, step by step training approach that you can apply to your own horse.

Through a series of photographs taken at the time, and personal essays, you gain first hand insights from the riders about their difficulties, breakthroughs, challenges and rewards.
