We’re thrilled to see Aussie-born horse training phenomenon Clinton Anderson, author of the bestselling books DOWNUNDER HORSEMANSHIP and LESSONS WELL LEARNED, the featured cover story in the December/January issue of Western Shooting Horse magazine!

Don’t miss the article by Ken Amorosano, which tells a little of Clinton’s personal story and how he found a way to transform his talent and love for horse training into a successful business and international brand. Based in Texas, Clinton is proud to call the United States his home, making him an inspiring example of someone making the American Dream his own.

“The American Dream can be defined and measured in a lot of ways. And in the modern world, it takes a lot to reach The Dream—especially for folks born outside the U.S.,” writes Amorosano. “But against the odds, Australian native Clinton Anderson has used a steadfast work ethic and appreciation for talented people to become a major force in equine education.”

Pick up a copy of Western Shooting Horse wherever quality equestrian magazines are sold to read the rest of the article, plus catch Clinton’s own article “Calming the Overanxious Horse” in the same issue!

Horse&Rider Magazine Says Kayla Starnes Has Written THE Book for Team Ropers!

“New to team roping? Or dying to give it a try? Kayla Starnes has written the book for you,” says the review of TEAM ROPING 101 in the January issue of Horse&Rider Magazine.

“Endorsed by the United States Team Roping Championships, and with a foreword by Clinton Anderson, this book has all the facts you need to get your team roping career started,” writes book reviewer Laura Downey. “It provides information on what to look for in a roping horse; what kind of tack, ropes, and other equipment you’ll need; the horsemanship skills you can’t rope without; and of course, simple drills for the roping horse from H&R contributor Clinton Anderson.

“Throughout the book, you’ll also find tips from professional team ropers Speed Williams and Rickey Green. With information covering everything from picking the right horse to roping your first steer, this book will help you on your way to becoming a great team roper.”

TEAM ROPING 101 author and photographer Kayla Starnes signed books at the Hastings in Stephenville, Texas, in November.

Some of you may have had the chance to meet TEAM ROPING 101 author and photographer Kayla Starnes during her November book signing at the Hastings in Stephenville, Texas. “It was my first book signing in my hometown, which was a really fun dynamic,” says Kayla. “I had the opportunity to visit with supportive friends and family, as well as roping enthusiasts. Some of my models for TEAM ROPING 101 are local amateur ropers, and more than one visitor was excited to discover that they recognized friends and family in the pages. That sense of community and devotion to learning about their sport is exactly why I chose to portray everyday ropers, as well as professionals, in this book.”

TEAM ROPING 101 author and photographer Kayla Starnes really enjoyed signing books in her hometown of Stephenville.

TEAM ROPING 101 is available from the TSB online bookstore, where standard shipping in the US is always FREE. CLICK HERE TO ORDER TEAM ROPING 101 NOW.

Do You and Your Horse Want to be on TV? TSB Author Clinton Anderson Has Posted a Casting Call for Upcoming Episodes of His Show on Fox Sports Net!

When TSB author and clinician Clinton Anderson began airing his popular television show Downunder Horsemanship on Fox Sports Net last year, he had no idea how popular the series would become. But the show has grown and taken on a life of its own, evolving from its original format (Clinton working with problem horses and their owners) to one-on-one features where Clinton visits with horsemen and women, discusses their personal successes, and helps them overcome challenges with their horses and in their life.

In order to find some of the most interesting and inspiring stories from across the country, Clinton’s organization Downunder Horsemanship (see the link on the right side of our blog page) has created a “Casting Call” page on its website, where you can submit your own true life story for consideration (and maybe a spot in one of Clinton’s upcoming episodes!) Clinton currently offers nine submission categories:

Inspire Us – Have horses and Clinton’s Method changed your life?

Confidence – Are you searching for lost confidence?

Last Resort – Is your horse a threat to you or other horses?

Horse Power – Do you use horses in your everyday life?

Competition – Have you or do you want to use Clinton’s Method to gain a competitive edge?

Undesirable Match – Are you in a bad horse relationship?

Coping with Losses and Challenges – Have horses helped you cope with a loss or overcome life’s challenges?

Relationships – Have horses brought you and your family and friends closer together?

Other – Have a story or problem that isn’t listed? Share it with us!

Clinton and his film crew will travel to selected horse owners’ homes, at no expense, for filming. Visit the Casting Call webpage http://downunderhorsemanship.com/CastingCall.cfm to learn more about the types of stories Downunder Horsemanship is looking for and how to submit an application for consideration.

Clinton Anderson’s books DOWNUNDER HORSEMANSHIP and LESSONS WELL LEARNED are available from the TSB online bookstore, where shipping in the US is always FREE and where you can get 15% off your order now through the holidays!
