Would you PAY $100,000 to apprentice?

This just blows my mind. There are some BNTs ( big named trainers) out there but no way would I pay this kind of money ($50,000.00 per year) to be a protege or apprentice to any of them.

Excluded are meals but only when served in the cafeteria but not on the weekends, no on site housing, no travel expenses (except tour ones)

Included is board for one horse

There is no flipping way I would spend that money on ANY trainer, but more so him!

I guess I'm just more of a realist than that.

I know it's a different field, but I expect to be paid for all my internships/placements xD If I go with BP I could get 20k!

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

There is no way I would pay 100,000 dollars to apprentice with someone. Especcially Parelli.

There are alot of good trainers out there that you don't have to pay a buttload of money to aprrentice under. Alot of said trainers are better than him too...but that is my oppinion.
