Trainers are here because they are patient, try their hardest, and when they can't solve a problem then they find a way to fix it. Not to give up and babysit. They have other jobs for that stuff. :(

Best thing to do is get recommendations from people you trust. My farrier recommended my trainer and I watched the trainer in the past work with a horse, and I have always heard great things about him in the area I live in. Being that I am going to continue from where he left off I have to be able to understand and agree to his methods. The whole point of training is to get the horse going under saddle of course, but a trainer needs to push their buttons and work through the reactions. This guy sounds like a dud. Find someone you trust and ask around for recommendations. I would then go and meet them, watch them work, ask about their methods and philosophy of training. A bad trainer can do some pretty good damage to a horse, but a good one can really make a great horse. Good thing you got yours outta there.

No, I don't blame the cut on the trainer. It looks fresh, but he got it a few days ago. He got it hung in some wire at the trainer's farm, but I don't know the entire story since he won't answer any of my calls.
I worked with Lakota today, and after the trainer warning me about how "he's dangerous", "he's skittish", "he's wild", "he's not the same horse"...He was a perfect gentleman for me today. I gave him a refresher course and he did perfectly fine, like nothing had ever happened.
Now I really, really think that I got conned. -.-

Please excuse how I look in this picture. I was a mess today. Lol
Here we are the first time that I got to see him after he came back from the trainer's. He's temporarily in my dad's old roping arena until we get all the cattle worked on the actual farm.
I love my boy and I'm so happy he's home. <3
