I agree with that caveat, Always.
Unfortunately, how many people actually take lessons or have their horses trained by professionals? If this BB is any indication, very few.
Too many people believe they can buy foals, problem horses, or horses beyond their own skill sets, and think they'll be able to train them properly with no outside professional help.
These are the people about which I'm talking, not the ones who buy a horse and plan to have a trainer work with both of them to make them into a cohesive team.
Lisa, if you plan to get a trainer involved in the mix, why not have them evaluate your skills before you buy anything? That way, they'll know what type of horse you need to challenge you, but not scare the daylights out of you.
