Hmmm...I agree with mlkarel2010 to an extent. I don't know anything about training horses for these purposes, but I would assume trainging horses for any purpose requires skill, experience, and professionalism. I think starting at a ranch cleaning stalls, assisting trainers, and being an all-around helper would be the right move. You don't want to come across as a fool when they figure out you aren't experienced enough! Good Luck, Brandon!
Oh, and I've never been to OK- looks FLAT!
