I'm going to my 2nd Ken clinic on the 4th. He was so informative and awesome to ride with. It was definitely worth the amount for a private hour. I'm going to try to ride every time he clinics at the barn I board at, and so far he seems to come frequently. Which is fabulous.
I'm just interested what others opinions are.
OH! I also wanted to throw out how much I loved that when my horse started to do a lot of bucking and I told Ken I was getting nervous, he made me feel so good about myself and made me actually believe I could do it! Just nice personalization I guess!

I rode my thorougbred with him a few years ago in a clinic and really enjoyed my lesson. My favorite thing about Ken's clinics is that he always put on his helmet when he got on someone's horse and never got into the do it now fight on a new horse. He wasn't afraid to show the horse does not look perfect just because the trainer gets on but he was careful to work with the horses and help all riders work through different exercises. He concentrates on forward and keeping good tempo through all movements. Loved that all horses started at the bottom of the training pyramid.
I have also shown under him at schooling shows and he was a fair, friendly, and positive judge. Even after my young OTTB tried to set some speed (and sometimes sideways) records :-)

I rode with him once for about 30 minutes. He was great, I would highly recommend him, and I would clinic with him in a heartbeat! He is fairly close to where I am at, and maybe I will have to trailer over his way as I was that impressed.
