Smile just got my first MFT

I purchased this mare in late Dec... I always had qtr and love trail riding along with barrel racing. I've gotten up there in years and wanted something smoother for trails. Tink is a 6y/o buckskin mare- unfortunately she isn't registered, but since I'm not breeding it no biggie. She's the avatar on here.
I'm looking for a good trainer for MFT to help me figure what the heck I'm doing. I'm in Texas just sw of Ft. Worth. Does anyone know of someone I could maybe call and then haul to them? Appreciate any and all info. Thank

I found her on Craigs List. I find that is a great way to buy a horse albeit risky. We have horses come both in and out of our barn as we discover things we do or don't want to deal with. She was inexpensive because she had problems with her gaits and wasn't a show horse. We bought her anyway feeling we could work on her and sure enough she's proven us right! Because of their kind hearts and gentle nature, they are willing and eager to learn when you build trust. I'm not saying she never tries to get away with anything. She does but as I correct her and even with a firm voice or hard work correction she responds very quickly. As an example, she was pushy with her nose. She was trying to play with me and rub me. Even though it was cute, it at times was annoying so after a few days I made the decision to not let her do it. I mildly but strong enough to feel it began just popping her on the cheek when she pushed me and it only took a few times for her to not do it anymore. I do highly recommend this breed if you want a gentle natured horse that is eager to learn.

Clinton Anderson has a gaited horse series that is great for foxtrotters and can help you do it yourself if you want. His method is good because if you want a good trail horse that can be ridden on a loose rein he'll help you do that. He's not so good if you're training a show horse to be ridden on the bit.
