    What honesty? The man put on a show for us at first, told us that he was going to teach my horse some "manners", then sent him back 2 weeks later saying that he was not a "bronc rider". The thing is, my horse isn't a bronc. I've saddled him and bridled him while my older brother (who my horse hated, btw) swung a leg over. He did perfectly fine, no spook, no nothing.
    Now this man is refusing to even sit on my horse, and he left him tied up with a saddle on him for hours at a time with no water. When I took my horse to this trainer, he would load in the trailer perfectly. When I came to get him, he refused to step a foot in the trailer and was terrified of the man who "trained" him. We ended up having to pull him in with a rope behind his butt.
    We got conned, and I should have read the signs earlier. Yes it was an expensive learning experience, and I am saving up more money for another trainer. But no, there was no honesty in this man's body.

    Obviously you didn't read anything that I had to say about sex and experience a friend had . Believe it or not a horse can live without water for a few hours at a time

    Lol you're right, I didn't see anything about sex. But the whole keeping a horse tied up in 100+ heat without water for hours maybe some people's way of teaching a horse a "lesson", but to me it's just cruel.

    Sorry it was autocorrect sex shouldn't have been in there. I went to watch some horses being trained before and they were all standing in the hot Sun for hours and I said something to about them not having any water so they offer the horses water in front of me and none of them wanted any

    Just because the horses you saw didn't accept water that was offered doesn't mean it's okay to leave horses standing in the sun without it.

    rrrg that is frustrating!!! I paid a trainer, that I new from the community, $600 to restart my mare, she had been started at 3 before I got her but hadn't been touched for 2 years. Id just got back into riding after not riding for years and didn't feel confident enough to do it myself. My husband was working for a farm that was cutting their hay just down from where my mare was being "trained". He'd go by several times a day halling hay back and said she never left her pen that he ever saw. When I picked her up she still was naughty and doing the same things I wanted worked out of her...He just said it was me and my confidence was low so she new and she never did that with him...truth is that's probably true but I paid him to put 30 days of miles on her...I ended up going to a trainer who also gave lessons with her and worked it out, learned a lot and still go and so do my step daughters a couple times a month.. maybe if you found someone who can help you train him and make those first rides for you??? Good luck!!

    I would love to find a trainer that would also give me lessons. There's just none close by that I can afford. Maybe in a couple of years when I have a good paying job. :/
