Ummm. I have a 16 year old friend who worked for a trainer breaking and training horses for a few summers now, and he now has a reputation and people send him colts and horses to ride because at their ranch, everything is done on horseback and their horses get used in the arena and out on the ranch. He trains very well. He's even selling a gelding in a Ranch Horse Competition and Sale event that the trainer he was working for won every year it has been put on.
He get's paid for breaking colts, and the colts he works with turn out very nice, soft, round and just good horses to ride.
I could have joined him this winter, but with my knee, I don't want to take any chances with having to push a young horse in cold weather.
