    A trainer can absolutely help!!! :) you're not the first to be fearful and intimidated by these rather large majestic creatures! ;) most trainers have dealt with that fear and can help you get the skills you need to overcome it.

    When I first got Sandie she bolted from everything, I was so afraid to even sit on her back and wondered if I was stupid to have bought a horse! Now almost 3 years later with the help of great friends and trainers, we're Eventing, arguably the craziest of the disciplines! ;) you'll get there with time and trust, but you'll get there faster with the help of a good trainer for sure!

    Thank you everybody. I'm going to call her just as soon as my mom gets off the phone. I have never been so nervous and intimidated in my life This trainer is like a god to me.

    Wish me luck.

    I called...and of course, no answer. She is notoriously impossible to get ahold of. So now I'm not sure what to do...keep on calling, I guess. Dad will never physically drive me over there. I am sort of lost.

    Just keep trying. If she is like a lot of us horse people, she spends all day in the barn, comes in at dark, too tired to return calls. It may take you a few days to reach her. In the meantime, use the internet to search for other stables in your area and read up on some other local trainers. It may be that you find someone besides this one trainer that can help you.

    Can you get your mother to drive you over there?
    If your dad will not drive you over there how are you going to work with this trainer?




    Have your list of things written out before you call. What you want to say, what you want to know, what you want to accomplish. That way you will not forget anything when you are on the phone.
    If this trainer can not be bothered to put up with you babbling on the phone asking questions she is most certainly not the trainer you want to train with at this point.

    It is important that you explain that you are not just looking for a trainer, you are looking for someone to help you with your confidence issues.

    E-mail? I am tough to get ahold of by phone too. I won't pick up the phone if I am riding or working a horse. I will not interrupt an in person conversation to pick up the phone and I do not have call waiting. Some might find that rude but I find the horse or person in front of me deserves my undivided attention.

    My lord, never been so nervous in my life

    I called the trainer (or what I sincerely hope was the trainer's number...I really am still not positive) and left her a message.

    Now we play the waiting game. I hope she calls back. Well, she did say (two years ago now) if we ever had trouble with the horse to give her a call...hopefully she'll remember that.

    Though I was jittery about calling, a part of me has just breathed a huge sigh of relief. I actually DID something. I am actually working towards getting help.


    ETA: How long should I expect to wait for a reply, trainers? How long does it generally take you guys to get back to people? Is it possible that she won't return my call at all, and how long before it's acceptable to try again?
