My husband and I first started out by watching Pete Ramey dvd's. But, we were both afraid to do the initial cut. So, after about half a year of searching we finally found a natural trimmer an hour away. She is wonderful and gave them their first trim.
I also told her that we wanted to be taught. She was fine with that.
The next time she came she did most of the trim but let us do some too.
My husband and I have been doing them for awhile now. Just to be sure what we have been doing is ok, we are going to have her come out one more time.
At first I thought that if we were going to go and trim, we would just get all 3 horses done with at one time. LOL, I no longer think that. We at most do two horses in one day. But, it's way easier to just do one at a time. Each horse still takes us about 45 minutes.
