Horse Training

Hey everybody! I was wondering if anyone else has trained horses and sold them and how it has worked out. I would probably say I am an intermediate rider. I w/t/c, ride western and english, jumped 18" bareback, and started a horse in barrels. Both my current horses were green broke, one with a couple months layoff when I got her and one straight from the racetrack. They both behave well now and I use natural horsemanship technices with them. I have owned 10 horses in my life time, been riding since I was 7 and taught myself to ride. I have only taken 6 months of lessons but my instructor said I was a natural rider and moved me up to the next level after 2 weeks. Please understand I am not bragging, just lettin' ya'll know my skill level. I will be 15 in a few weeks and next spring I would like to start buying, training , and selling horses. I may be young, but I know what I want to do with my life and that is have a training/show hunter barn. I think this is a good way to get started. I will pay for all the expenses of the horses, not just rely on my parents money. I live on a 30 acre farm with horse facilities.So, do ya'll think it is a good Idea? Has anyone here tried to do the same thing? If so, how well has it worked out? Sorry for the long post, thanks to all who read and reply!

If you were to start training on your own I would suggest to work with a trainer too, get lessons on the horse as often as possible. A self taught trainer is alot of the time A recipe for A horse with bad habits.
