She. It isn't like am going to completely ignore them and I want to learn, get their results yet not have a bad mannered horse, theirs are bad mannered and the only horse that doesn't push them around is the stallion because they take a firmer approach to him. It's not like I abuse her and she behaves very well so it isn't like they'd be having a dangerous or naughty horse reflected on them. It's just j don't want them changing everything I do with her. I'm willing to learn and try new things I just don't want them to try and force it on me. I'm not saying they will, it was just a concern.

So what are you going to learn from people who have what you view as bad mannered horses? Again you are not aspiring to produce bad mannered horses, I struggle to believe that anyone worth going to is, so ask yourself will you be comfortable there?

So, tell me again, why do you want to go learn from them?

Nothing here makes sense.

If you don't like their horse handling, DON'T WASTE THEIR TIME, or yours. Let someone else take the opportunity to "learn", because honestly, if you go in with the attitude that you have right now, you're wasting everyone's time and effort.

JMO, of course. *shrug*

I want to learn about how to care for a competition horse, ride them ect... I'm not bothered about how they are behaviour wise as long as my horse doesn't get taught the same things.

I think I'm understanding what the OP is saying (correct me if i'm wrong)- She is going there to learn, and is happy to learn and get experience with their way of handling/care/etc when it regards their own horses, but the stuff that doesn't work for her own horse, she doesn't want to be forced to use because it's the norm where she's going.

Many people talk about learning from trainers and say 'take what you can use and leave the rest', it doesn't mean you ignore what the trainer is saying, you still learn of the techniques and the reasons behind it. Even if you don't use what they've taught with your own horse, you still have the knowledge of what was said and can use it should you find another horse that responds better to that technique than your own.

That's exactly what I mean I'm better at communicating to horses than people.

TBH I don't think you ar cut out for a career in horses. You are too arrogant and too demanding.

You want it all perfect for you, what you don't realise is what a brilliant opportunity you are about to throw away because you are not willing to learn or to try different approahes.
Tell me what results do you have that make your approach better than thiers? What makes your little pony that much better than those competition horses.

Given your coments I seriously doubt you've ever delt with a proper competition horse before!
Serious competition horses are often quirky, difficult and strong personalities and very very sensitive. They are generaly extremely fit, fed to the eyeballs and handled carefully.
They are also highly intellegent and some can bare grudges like you wouldnt believe. Smacking some horses on the nose will lead to serious injury of yourself when the horse fights back, some horses will react so badly you will never get a hand near thier face again which will make it nigh on impossible to get a bridle on them.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

After reading this, I think you would be wasting their time by going. You clearly do not want to learn anything from them, and if you go there with the attitude you have displayed here?

You won't last long there anyway.

There are other people who would benefit from the chance, I don't see you doing that.

When you approach something like this, with the attitude you have more mad horse skills than they do, which is how you are coming across?

You are welcomed very long.

Look around and see if there are any barns that you do approve of, and see if they want you.

I alerted the lady that you are basically calling incompetent to this conversation by email. Judging from the photos of her riding, I'd guess that you won't have much of a decision to make, as she will make it for you.

Please don't bad mouth serious riders, and professionals in this way on a public board.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^****. I was going to comment that you should probably give it a miss and wait a few years to allow the teenage knowitallism to subside but I guess you blew it already. Well, I guess you reap what you sew.
