I've never had to deal with it, but my best friends went to a Ken McNabb and he told them straight up that they we're some of the best riders he had seen, and he would consider sending them some horses for training. I was nothing but happy for them- when a national clinician tells you he'd send you horses to train, that is a BIG deal, and I couldn't be more thrilled for their training careers. Another friend, however, also a rider, was incredibly jealous because she didn't go to the clinic, and she wasn't getting the attention, so she started telling everyone how she was thinking of interning with Clinton Anderson because he was better anyway. It was very frustrating to watch. She couldn't just be happy for them- she was jealous and wanted to one up them, and it's something I see a lot in the horse world.
