I am a colt starter. I have always wanted to be a trainer. Eventually I want to apprentice with a reining trainer. I want to spend some time learning basic dressage. I want to keep learning and improving. But for now I am starting colts. And yes, I did just get bucked off of one the other day. I would rather work with untouched horses than spoiled horses. The.2nd time I have been bucked off in about 18 years of riding. But I love working with horses, and I am making a living training colts. It is all about.the way you handle a horse, and you will never know anything.

As someone who used to train horses for the public, those trail riders rarely bring their horses to trainers for tune ups, or take lessons, they just enjoy their horses as they are. Yes, many will bring their horses to be started by a trainer, but that is where it ends. People who have problem horses usually just sell them or stop riding them & let them be pasture ornaments. People who compete in equestrian pursuits will seek out trainers & coaches and keep coming back, recreational riders - very rarely, if at all.
