At the end of next fall I'm going to Texas to intern for a trainer. I can't bring my mare and the thought of her sitting around bothers me (bf let his 27 year old sit around for a year and he lost his entire top line). She will be 19 when I leave and I will be gone for at least 6 months.
So I was thinking I could send her to a trainer for a bit while I'm away. She needs a refresher and I would like her to be trained in something western. If I want her to be trained on Barrels I can have CL (trainer right up the rd) train her buts that's $600 a month. I will have the money but I don't think that's the way my mare needs to go.
Anyone know of good trainers in Arizona? I don't care where as I can have her trailred there.
Here are pics/vids of her for reference
(Please not I was only 'chasing' her as she was being stubborn and refusing to lope.)
