Talking Yes!


I'm so excited right now! If you have been following my other threads, you know that it's been hell What I like to call "bit drama" has occured, and then the usual problems everyone has to work through has come up, but I have just felt like we couldn't get through them. I had the other trainer at my barn ride my horse this morning, and am thrilled to say that it went fabulous! She thinks she can fix our long term lead change problem, and all the other problems we have We have informed my other trainer that we will be switching trainers for a little bit to see how these things go so we can work through these problems. I really like this other trainer! I've known her for a long time, but today was the first time she has worked with me/my horse. She has been training horses for a VERY long time and doesn't believe in beating horses to get them to do what we want.

She also noticed he was stiff in his left hind, so wel'll be taking him to the ciro Tuesday to get that fixed. I didn't notice it before but she let me hop on him when she was done and I felt it once she pointed it out! It feels like he's reaching nicely with his right hind but with his left he's only stepping half way. Guess he's just a little stiff is all. Nothing our lovely ciro can't fix

So anyway, I'm going to begin lessoning with her so she can teach me the correct way to do this, and along the way I'll be learning good horsemanship! Something I should have learned 6 or 7 years ago when I started riding, but never had the correct trainer. I've gone through a lot of trainers searching for the right one But yeah, I'm UBER excited and can't wait!

I'll try to keep everyone updated, we'll just have to wait and see how things go!

Just wanted to share my excitement (and relief for that matter)! Cookies if you got through that! =]

Yeah, that excited feeling has quickly died My current trainer was just fine when we told her on the phone our plan, but apparently went behind our back and called my sister to tell her we just kicked her to the side, along with calling this new trainer and yelling at her! WTH? We're all supposed to be on the same team, the other trainer is just helping, can't she notice that?! Gah, always drama...

Anyway, the HELPFUL trainer told us we could still lesson with her and that my tainer would just have to get over it. So our plan is still in action, only now we have a bunch of enemies. What else is new? Excuse me for actually wanting to have fun and learn, didn't know I had to please everyone first before me and my horse!

Well great, she's on the phone with her...grand.

If your old trainer is acting like this then you're probably well rid of her. Don't worry about the people she's calling and complaining to, what matters is that you and your horse are going to be progressing and learning!

Good luck with everything! I can't wait to hear more updates! :)

^ This. I've learned kind of quickly that people who make their way with horses by being intimidating or rude or throwing fits so people leave them alone / don't stand up to them just to avoid the drama are baaaad people to be around.

This is a fun, wonderful passion and sport and there is no room for that kind of unnecessary negativity and selfishness!

I also agree with strange and deerly, if she is that rude and negative just because you want to learn from someone else then good riddance to her. My instructor openly encourages learning from as many sources as possible as she wants me to develop a well rounded knowledge base and is aware that she doesn't know everything (no-one does).
