Born and raised in Australia, Clinton grew up with a love of horses, and by the age of 15 was apprenticing with some of the best trainers in the country. In 1997, he came to the United States where he continued pursuing his passion for horses and established Downunder Horsemanship and his renowned horsemanship method. Clinton’s Method is based on mutual respect and understanding, and gives you the knowledge you need to become a skilled horseman and train your horse to be a more consistent and willing partner.
