I have given my trainers info out to quite a few people over the years and he has thanked me for that several times. It gets him new clients. Ones he might not have if I had not given out that info and 99% of it was done on the net.

She mentioned the trainer's first and last names, AND the name of their new son. That to me (as a parent) sends out all sorts of red flags. While I still believe in the privacy of my instructor, sharing her child/children's names or other info is completely inappropriate.

Not really.

I think the line should be drawn on posting pictures not authorized to be posted such as personal snapshots. These could show your trainer in a not so good light and we all make mistakes. Most trainers do have websites with pictures and those pictures are carefully chosen so a link to that site is viewable by everyone anyways.

I would be most upset if someone put up a picture of my horse taken at an awkward moment as I have paid money to put up the best shots of him on my site.

here's my future trainer's website. I'll be with her when I move to Kentucky

Home - Three-Day Farm

My current trainer is an Intermediate level eventer. Great with problem horses and horses that aren't exactly ideal for a rider. I really, really enjoy her. I'm going to be working with her in the summer when I come home.

Look like a SUPERSTAR, Ride like a FOUR STAR, Win like a ROCKSTAR

Toni doesn't really have a website or anything, nor do I have any pictures of her, but I can tell you loads about here ^^

She owns about 500 acres, four pastures, a cutting and reining pen, a 30-stall barn, two round pens, and an outdoor schooling area. The outdoor area is where she set sup her "Tower of Terror" which is used for bomb proofing. Its her signature facility and its a bloody scary trail course.

I've ridden with Toni my entire life, literally since six months old up to now at the age of Fifteen. She's started and helped me and Mom start all our horses and foals. She's a total drill sergeant, and afte rone lesson she's the voice in your head and you are constantly afraid that she's gonna leap out of the bushes and yell "Heels Down! Sit back! LOOK UP!" Or something like that <333

I have a friend (Val) with Graves Disease and her meds make her totally freaky, and one of the older breeders (Bill) in the area was in the hospital. He called her and left a message "Um, Val, I just heard some very disturbing news. I need to talk to you." and she was thinking he was dying or something. She calle dhim back and he said one of the nruses said that Toni was dead. So in a panic, Val called Toni's place and when Toni answered I was sitting next to her and I heard Val screaming into the phone "YOU'RE NOT DEAD!!"

Lolz, Toni's the best. She may be a drill sergeant and a little scary but she's helluva good person and loves everyone, plus she's funny as hell. Never a dull moment ^^

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Fowl play, I agree with you. For the reasons Spyder gave.

Some one with a business should have a right to say 'no thank you' to a photo of them being posted on a public forum like this. A photo that someone thinks is cute might not show their instructor in the best light.

Me three. Or four. Running your own business doesn't make you into public property. A link to their website is acceptable. I'm glad to hear these two obviously loved trainers did give their permission.

I think mine would kick my butt if I did!
