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.
