People have their thing. By looking at the site it looks like she doesn't do it all alone, her mother (I am guessing) plays a large part in the whole thing. There are a lot worse people out there and they seem like they are genuinely trying to help horses. I didn't have a too close look at this site.. so I don't really know.

Besides, really she can do whatever she likes, if unsuspecting people decide they want to hire these people blind... well that is their problem. A few google searches will give them a lot of information so they can critically evaluate whatever they choose to spend money on.

Do you think It's worth having a page like this, like such as encouraging clients?
I'm by no means trying to say they shouldnt be doing it, i dont think i'd really take my boy there but thats not the point, would a page like this get a lot of attention? they are advertising it on horses for sale pages hence how i came across it.

I think a page like this could get a lot of attention - but not the right sort of attention.

They're offering range of services without offering any explanation of their experience or qualifications. They don't offer a part of the site to explain who they are and what they want to do.

The information offered on this site seems to be aimed at a very inexperienced horse owner/rider, and while there are certainly some of them out there, I don't think they would be the type of people to use these services.

To top it of the site doesn't seem professional, and a lot of the riding/handling could be considered incorrect by a lot of people - which is fine for a general horse owner, but not a great look for a rescue horse retrainer and riding instructor.

I do think websites are wonderful advertising tools and I know when looking for pretty much anything horse related I search the net first, but if they are done wrong they can practically kill a business.

What do you think of the whole thing Tayz?

I dont know. it's confusing as this little girl has a facebook and picks alot of fights with teenagers and acts like she knows everything when she seems generally wrong about alot. I just worry that perhaps they could do more harm then good but as someone mentioned her mum does it as well which makes me feel a bit better. But she really is a strong willed little girl, she really got violent when on several occasions i've politely voiced my opinions on certain horse things. I just hope they actually do know what they are doing and her mum is fully on top of it..if not I could see the little girl getting sued quite easily for something.

A little girl should not be one of the stars in a training program. I wouldn't send my horse there. Raina would eat this child for breakfast and wash her down with a tall glass of her hopes and dreams.

I wonder if they've ever delt with a seriously challenging horse. I can't really judge...but from what it sounds like, this girl has never been "put in her place" by a horse. So I'm guessing not.
