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!

Clinician Clinton Anderson, author of DOWNUNDER HORSEMANSHIP and LESSONS WELL LEARNED, will present a three-hour colt-starting demonstration at the National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity on Friday, September 28th, beginning at 1:00 p.m. Clinton’s colt-starting method is focused on ensuring safety for the horse and the rider by properly preparing the colt with groundwork exercises. During the demonstration, Clinton will share desensitizing and sensitizing exercises he uses to ensure a colt is respectful, calm, and willing. Clinton uses an assistant during a horse’s first three rides to make the experience less stressful, and he will have professional clinician Shana Terry on-hand to help demonstrate to the crowd the benefits of using a helper.

You can learn about Clinton’s methods in his books DOWNUNDER HORSEMANSHIP and LESSONS WELL LEARNED—both are available from the TSB online bookstore, where shipping in the US is always FREE.

Sales of e-readers were predicted to be astronomical this holiday season. TSB (HorseandRiderBooks.com) plans to make its bestselling list of equestrian books available in Kindle and epub formats.

Forecasters predicted that this would be the biggest Christmas ever for e-book readers under the tree. If Santa brought you one of the many reading devices now available and you’re wondering what your first e-book downloads should be, put a horse book at the top of your list!

Trafalgar Square Books, leading publisher of horse-related books and DVDs, is going digital. With a focus still on high quality, full-color print books, TSB can’t ignore the industry and social trends that tell us more and more people are reading books digitally. We want our authors—the top riders, trainers, and horse care experts in the world—and their tips, techniques, and ground-breaking methods to be available to a broad-range of equestrians, anywhere in the world.

TSB‘s backlist of bestselling horse books numbers in the hundreds, so we will be making titles available via e-book formats gradually, as we can. Currently, the following three books are available in Kindle and epub formats:


LESSONS WELL LEARNED by Clinton Anderson


Kindle and epub formats of these three top-sellers can be purchased on Amazon.com and eBooks.com.

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!

At some point in our life with horses, each one of us has surely been faced with an equine partner that, well, has real trouble being a “partner.” This can manifest as bad behavior, such as poor stable manners (crowding, striking, biting, cribbing) or dangerous action under saddle (bucking, rearing, bolting, shying), to name just a few.

Sometimes, the cause of this bad behavior is fairly easy to ferret out, and the solution within our own reach with the help of a couple of good books or DVDs. In others, the situation escalates until both you and your horse are frustrated and afraid, and the chance of one of the both of you getting hurt is very real.

Luckily, TSB author Clinton Anderson offers very real solutions for your very real horse behavior problems. And now, he’s looking for horses with serious problems—the tougher the case the better—for an upcoming television series. If you have a disrespectful horse with a serious problem, take a moment to hear Clinton explain what he’s looking for in the YouTube click below. Then click on the Problem Horse Application on the Downunder Horsemanship website (see recommended links on the right side of our blog) and send him a video of your horse behaving badly. Clinton may choose YOUR HORSE and work with him for FREE using his Method.

Remember, both of Clinton’s bestselling books LESSONS WELL LEARNED and DOWNUNDER HORSEMANSHIP are available from the TSB bookstore, where shipping in the US is always FREE.
