I send Oggi (2003 APHA breeding stock mare) back for 2 months of western pleasure training, the trainer is fantastic and get her that much closer to be show ready. She's already got 2 months under her cinch but I am going to keep putting training on her no matter what.
I send Rain (2006 Arabian x Pinto mare) for her first time to the trainer. Very easy going. I really should get her broke to ride just to get it over and done with. I can sit on her but we don't move much just turns and flexing. I'd be sending her for 2 months solid.
I send both for a month each and maybe just save up enough for another months training for each while they are in training. It wouldn't be guarenteed that I could afford 2 months for both but both could use it desperately.
Also I really want to send Nova (2010 AQHA Dun Filly) in for some touch up work for the halter show season (to work on her showmanship). I could easily show her this season and get her show career started off right.
What do you think?
