Question who looks like a better trainer?

who would you choose out of these two people to train your horse?
Legend eQuestrian
or
VOLTE EQUESTRIAN

after thinking about it for a while, i went with the second one (volte), and i think is was a good choice.
so, who would you have picked?

i have no idea what i am doing

I'd pick the second one. Reason being the first one is an absolute turn off, all fairy dust and unicorn farts;). I don't buy into such 'schemes'.

I'd go for the second one as well. There were spelling mistakes in the first website's description of what they do. That tells me they clearly don't take pride in how they represent themselves. Also, saying that they are the only trainer and coach recommended by Carolyn Resnick comes off as extremely conceited and I doubt they have much of a foundation to that claim. Fairy dust and Unicorn farts indeed.

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

Definitely the second one. It was more concise and "what you see is what you get."
The first one was awful looking! Looks like a "fluffy bunny" facility owned by city people that don't know horses, and frequented by city people that don't know horses. (Although no offense is meant to city folk.)
That "Waterhole Ritual" thing looks utterly ridiculous. I mean, seriously?!

"The horse is completely free to make the choice to accept, or reject, your influence. The Waterhole Rituals develop a strong working bond and put your horse into a willing and focused state for whatever adventure you seek together. This work transfers seamlessly into lined and ridden work to make each interaction a joy."

Really? Yes, that kind of relationship is ideal, but we can't be nice all the time! I swear, these people probably have not heard of "herd dynamics." If I did the "Waterhole Ritual" with my mother's gelding, he'd just flip me the bird and go off on his own.

Agreed, the second. They appear to be actual trainers with actual goals and actual results.

The first strikes me as nothing but one more silly kid trying to cash in by advertising the gimmick of "train your horse through nothing but love".

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I don't even know who Carolyn Resnick is! So I looked at her page and that looks very low quality, so I doubt it means much to be certified by her, especially since it looks like it only takes a 3-day seminar to be certified. You want your horse to be trained, not played with. You can do that yourself and not have to pay for it. Second option for sure!

Be dominant, not violent. Be assertive, not aggressive. Take in all the information you can get your hands on, but only give out what works, what is true, and/or what is genuinely useful - and only when asked.

This is how training with lurve, butterfly farts and glitter rainbow unicorn poop turns out:

I have known good trainers with lousy websites and bad trainers with great websites. The 1st website would not even be anyone I would take a 2nd look at.

Unicorn farts! I'm still laughing!!!


I agree the second one as well. The first one has a main picture of a girl leading a horse out of a snow covered field by just a rope over its neck while surrounded by other horses - that looks mildly dangerous to me.
