    You'd be surprised how many people talk themselves up on the Internet. A teenager that has had Arabians....quarter horses....has jumped....done dressage etc....that's we're the "hmmmm" came in. Don't get me wrong good advice is good advice but based on what I've seen I had to question her. I like for people to back up words typed on the Internet sometimes....and I expect people to do the same to me. I'm no pro but I don't fluff myself up. Let's face it how many teenagers train GOOD horses?
    No, but I thought your original comment did come across as derogatory toward Sorrelhorse. Wouldn't it have been more courteous to just ask "Can you tell us about your experiences and background in all your different events and horses?" rather than starting out with "Good lord......." and ending with "hmmmmm". There are much more friendly ways to ask the same thing without making a dramatic scene. There is certainly nothing wrong with asking for someone's credentials, but there are nicer ways to do it.

    I personally know a handful of teenagers (or who are now adults that started as teenagers) who were training awesome horses for a great price. I myself was not one of those nor would I call myself a great trainer at this point either, although I did train some horses for local people and neighbors in my high school years. It is certainly not the norm to see a great trainer so young as a teenager, but it does happen on occasion.

    Just one off the top of my head here, a girl from my hometown (in her high school years) who trained her own barrel horse from the ground up, won two back-to-back high school rodeo state championships and placed 14th in the nation in barrels. Not only her horse, but she trained horses for lots of other people while she was in high school, who also did very, very well with their barrel horses. Good working horses too.
