I highly recommend Patrick King. He is not cocky AT ALL, is VERY informative and is quite humorous. His rates are very comparable to local trainers, just keep in mind he is based out of another equestrian center and you pay board to the farm owner not Patrick. (which when your horse is in training with him you get to participate in the academy group sessions for three months to make sure you are progressing with your horse and everything is going smoothly). He is very good at showing you something and explaining why. Very interesting to listen to. He encourages the owner to come and be part of the training process so that you can see the progression of the horse and learn how to work with it as well. I've never recommended anyone this highly before.
He has his own training and boarding facility about half an hour from my house, and is a couple miles from my aunts. I've been looking into it, but his rates are actually a little high for my area, compared to most. Boarding is average, but training is a little high. I really want to send my mare to him, she's got some issues (tying only being one of them and i don't know what went wrong), I also have a 2yo i'm working with too, but he won't be going anywhere until he's about 4 (I start my horses late). I've heard many good things about him, but i'd have to go and meet him and talk with him in person, to assure my decision. A friend of mine went to one of his clinics, and she's going to be sending one of her horses to him once she gets everything saved up. I have every intention of going and working with my horse so that i know what to do and keep up! I'm facinated in learning how to train horses.
Thank you for your input, its very helpful!!

P.S. I'm glad to hear your filly is doing well in her training!!!!
