Lessons Well Learned - Why My Method Works for Any Horse

New Book by Clinton Anderson


Trafalgar Square Books is pleased to announce the publication of Clinton Anderson’s Lessons Well Learned. Frustrated by a horse that’s lazy and slow-to-learn? Frightened by an aggressive, disrespectful mount? Unsure of how to take your good show prospect and make him great? This one-of-a-kind book dishes out sensible solutions to all these common problems, and more, as Clinton Anderson guides you through the best ways to become a more confident, efficient, and proactive horseman.

It is in the spirit of “teaching people” as much as “training horses” that Clinton shares 20 of the most valuable lessons he’s learned—from horses and those that work with them—throughout his career. His theory is that if you know how he learned—just a regular old kid with a passion for horses and a desire to work with them—then you, too, regardless of your age or experience, can reach the next level with your horsemanship. Plus, you’ll get the inside scoop on some of Clinton’s most challenging training cases, most frustrating personal moments, and the errors he’s made—and learned from—over the years.

The transition from being an unknown horse trainer in Australia to one of the most renowned clinicians in the world has not been easy, but the history behind CLINTON ANDERSON and Downunder Horsemanship® is inspiring. Clinton 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 15, he started an apprenticeship with nationally acclaimed horse trainers, Gordon McKinlay and, later, Ian Francis. Just three years later he started his own training facility in Australia and trained over 600 horses. In 1996 Clinton traveled to the United States and apprenticed with Al Dunning, and in 2000, he took a huge gamble, becoming the first clinician to develop and launch an hour long, specifically “made-for-TV” weekly training program on RFD-TV. In 2003 and 2005, Clinton won the prestigious “Road to the Horse” colt-starting competition with a focus on educating the audience by demonstrating what’s possible if you have a solid training foundation. Clinton now travels extensively conducting clinics and appearing as a headlining speaker at many of the major equine events throughout North America. His business is based in the “Cowboy Capital of the World,” Stephenville, Texas, where he pursues his core purpose of “Inspiring the Dreams of Horsemen.”
