Clinton Anderson was born and raised in Australia where he began riding at six years of age. At fifteen, he obtained a full-time apprenticeship with a well-known trainer in Queensland, Australia, where he trained more 600 horses over his two-year tenure. It was here that he began to develop his own philosophy on horse training. Mr. Anderson then went on to work for another Australian trainer before opening his own training operation and becoming involved in reining. In the fall of 1997, Mr. Anderson moved to the United States and launched his Downunder Horsemanship program a few months later. He began training, touring, and conducting horsemanship clinics, as well as creating at-home study courses for horsemen. In 2001, he launched a “made-for-TV” program that is still broadcast regularly on RFD-TV. Through his programs and clinics, Mr. Anderson strives to gives horse owners the knowledge needed to become skilled horsemen and train their horses to be consistent and willing partners. He continues to conduct clinics and tour the United States while still breeding, training and competing on his performance horses at the top levels in reining and cow horse events. He currently resides in Stephenville, TX.
