We are looking for someone that wants to stay longer than just the summer if we can find the right person. I feel like we would just be getting started on the progression from starting a horse to getting into more advanced things and the person would be gone and we would have to start all over with someone else.
If I was still able to ride and train, it would not be difficult to find one or more assistants. They could step in and warm horses up for me and ride some of the 'greenies'. They could gradually do more and more themselves. But, I can now only coach, so I have to bring someone along that can do it all from the beginning. This is not the ideal situation and can be frustrating for both of us, but it would be even more frustrating for me to have to keep starting from the beginning with different people every 3 or 4 months. I hope that makes sense.
