Very well said!!!
Try to work under a trainer who trains in the area of performance you want to train in. I worked under a cutting horse trainer as well as a john lyons certified trainer. I worked under both for YEARS. I still learning to this day. I've been training horses on my own for about a year now, but my main focus is the timed events as well as working horses on cattle.
Its honestly hard to become the "best trainer" out there.
