The two oldest girls were way to comfortable just walking up to my horses who don't have experience with kids. It was a pain when her youngest kept crying, because it scared vini. And she even picked up her baby and held him right next to vinis head while he was crying.
I don't know I learned about my saddle but nothing on actual training. Her kids fed half a bag of treats to my goat, and they left trash in the barn. I actually asked to end the meeting early because I didn't feel safe with the children running up to my horses..
Ugh I was hoping for some good news, and that did not happen.
Wow, that is pretty strange...not professional, period. Okay, so live and learn. Check around, get referals and "feedback", interview (point out children are not welcome) - and hire what most reguard as a pro. And, pat yourself on the back for trying!
