From the trainers I saw at Equitana - Gawani Pony Boy.
Very practical, very safe for both horse and handler (and puts safety first) and works on the basis that it doesn't matter how good his horsemanship is, its the rider\owner who must understand and handle the horse.
I've read plenty but would only vote on those that I've actually seen and heard, so Pony Boy beats John Lyons, Pat Parelli and Michael Pariseau - Linda Parelli just works the lights and merchandising as far as I could see (or at least at the clinics)

My favorite tranier is Chris Irwin, He is awsome!! And he makes sense of alot of things, Once you see him in person he is unbelievible!!

In responding to the poll I voted for my own trainer, but this trainer is really not my own but OUR own trainer - Kerry (horse) would never vote for anyone else since Sue has made such a difference to her life and mine and Kerry knows this without any doubt at all!!!!

Two people really. Ben Hart and Emma Kurrels from Company of Horses based in Devon, England.
Ben and Emma train and rehabilitate horses using operant conditioning with positive reinforcement.
My approach to training and the relationship I have with my horse (and dogs and husband!) has improved dramatically since I met these people.
Attending a CoH workshop is life changing, as everyone I've met who has been on one agrees.
Cannot recommend them highly enough. Check out their website: www.companyofhorses.com

I <3 Mony Roberts! I've read two of his books and couldn't put them down! I wrote an essay on them for school and everything a couple of years ago! I think he is brillent!

I voted for Pat Parelli - I think the results of the parelli training method are quite amazing, and through his work he is bringing natural horsemanship into mainstream equestrian culture - they worked parelli horses loose, on lunge lines, and bareback over the Amercian National Team training cross country course!
This was watched in awe and wonder by Mark Phillips American eventing team trainer, who quipped that if the American team was to compete against Parelli partnerships - the Parelli riders would be easy winners! RESULT!

mine :) im amazed at everything she does, even when training...getting on a tough horse who doesn't want to go over the jump no matter what that horse does she is focused and her position to/over/after is allways absolutly perfect! nothing phases it. she knows everything the horse is going to do before it does it. she is just awsome!

Out of the trainers you put there i would have to chose Pat Parelli, i think his results are amazing...
I used to love Monty Roberts... Even though i never read his books or anything... But recentley are person convinced me to think other wise... id rather not go into it... But i DO plan on reading his book then ill make my decision for sure.
But my all time favourite trainer is Terry Jessup... I love him... I went into his clinic and i have to admitt at first i was actually crying because i didnt like that they were making my baby work lol :rolleyes: But then they made me understand and i love it! I think Terry's work is amazing... And i went to his ranch for a weekend, He has a great family, great horses, and it was an amazing expeirence, lol i was actually one of his first student type things to stay at his ranch... Hehe we made a joke that he was just using me to get closer to my horse LOL :p
