No your allowed trainers and instructors and all that stuff, you just have to do the major amount or riding or training. But your allowed to have adults or professionals help they just can't do the bulk or the work, or showing of your project animal or horse. But it may variey between states, provinces or countries.

Actually my area 4Hers are allowed to ride other 4Hers horses, so are their parents. Those rules just get ran over a bit when one of your parents would by AQHA standards be a professional. My mom rides and trains on my horses (rarely), she gets paid to ride other peoples horses and has given lessons. But because she's my parent it's not against the 4H rules. But all this is only after a certain date, before that date you can have anyone on your horse.

And the horse I rode before wasn't even being shown in 4H.

Either way it's money I need, and this will be my last year of 4H anyway. I'm not training a horse, I'm going to help teach some little girl or older girl both beginers how to ride and do barrels. I know of a few others that train and give lessons to in my 4H.

Not that is has anything to do with the OP's question.

Animals winning money and owners winning money are two very different things.

I realize animals do not spend the money. But when the class is being judged on the animal not the rider/handler it is a technically the animal winning prize money.
