Filled with great training tips, ways to boost confidence and compelling personal insight, the episode is as instructional as it is inspirational.

When her horse's violent bucking rage lands Nikki Mann in the hospital, she knows she's come to the end of the road with her gelding Jack. Having owned Jack for 14 years, Nikki has dealt with his chronic bucking since he was started as a 2-year-old. Clinton shows Nikki how to gain Jack's respect by controlling his feet using Fundamentals exercises. Once the gelding's trust is earned and he's using the thinking side of his brain, Clinton puts Nikki in the saddle for the first time in a year.
Top 10 Countdown: #5 Colt Starting, Part 1
Working with the wild mustang, Ransom, Clinton demonstrates his colt starting method in this two-part series. He begins by working with the colt in the roundpen to establish first touch and then progresses to doing groundwork with the halter and lead rope. A firm believer in safety, Clinton explains the importance of groundwork and how it not only establishes trust and respect, but prepares a horse for a safe first ride.
Top 10 Countdown: #4 Colt Starting, Part 2
In the first part of the series, Clinton earned Ransom's respect and trust to prepare the once wild mustang for the first ride. In this episode, Clinton demonstrates a textbook first ride on the gelding. Unlike traditional colt starting techniques, Clinton's method relies on the help of an assistant during a horse's first three rides. The clinician explains the importance of using a helper and his belief that colts should be worked at all three gaits (walk, trot and canter) during the first ride.
