I began following Clinton Anderson and Downunder Horsemanship before he titled his program the Method. It was 2005, I was 51 and was helping my wife get through a tough time with her horse. I had never owned a horse of my own, but the techniques I learned through the DVD programs gave me the confidence to get my first horse. Truth be told, I owned a stick and string, halter, and Gaining Respect and Control on the Ground, before I even began looking for my first horse.
Because I'm a bit on the frugal side, I volunteered for and work at three Walkabout Tours. One of them was the first Tour-cation event in Las Vegas. After the last of the work was completed on Sunday night, I couldn't sleep and went down to the casino at the South Point. Clinton came in later with a few friends at sat down to play Blackjack. Moving quickly to his table, I had the best time losing $60 as Clinton kept the dealer, other players, and even the pit boss smiling. (Well, I don't believe pit bosses are allowed to smile.)
Later, I would document my progress with my American Quarter Horse, Jessie on our YouTube Channel and generate over a half a million views!
The Whoa Podcast was originally titled the DUH Podcast as an homage to Downunder Horsemanship. We later changed the name because people thought we were affiliated with the company. We are NOT! When we were approaching our 100th episode I contacted Downunder Horsemanship and invited Clinton to be on the show.
As we wind up the 5th year of the podcast, we rerun one of my most exciting moments in this podcast experience.
Merry Christmas and here's to an exciting 2018!
