So if your car breaks and you know how to put a gasoline in and add an oil you'd fix it? Trainer is someone professional. Like mechanic. Like a farrier. And is paid for hes/her experience and knowledge. Not everyone working with the horse is a professional. In fact out of the crowd working with horses only very few people are deserved to be called a trainer. And even fewer can deal with truly problem horses and fix them. If you don't know what you are doing trying to fix a real problem you can ruin the horse or (worse) hurt/damage the horse.

You don't have to send a horse to the trainer if you oppose it so much. You can just arrange some lessons, so the trainer would teach you how to deal with the situation. And I'm suggesting this as an average person and the horse owner, and that's exactly what I did/would do in a situation similar to yours. Other than that I can't suggest much. Good luck!

sorry duffy, just trying to help. I figured after 5 pages someone had mentioned 'get her used to having her face touched.' I never said that was the only thing she needed to do, just a helpful tip.

Are you serious? Anyone who "tries" to work with a problem is a trainer? Any idiot can "try" to work with a problem - and end up making it worse (usually at the expense of the horse), a TRAINER has the knowledge and skill set to FIX the problem.

I don't word things well. I don't mean to say that ANYONE can just try to fix the problem, for example those backyard pony owners that think they know what theyre doing, but sensible horse people who do it on a daily baisis, yeah I do consider them trainers. Not every trainer is going to do a good job either, hence why they're not my first priority to a solution either.

You never seemed to really want it in the first place, everything anyone has said you shot it down. We all tried to help, but unless your willing to do whatever you can you are never going to get anywhere.

I feel very badly for your horse(s) - whether you want to hear it or not, you are in over your head here. You are doing your horse(s) a major disservice in the name of, I don't know, being right? Stubbornness? Pride? Ignorance? Ultimately, it doesn't really matter what the reason, but the fact that it is happening. You have a choice, the horse(s) do not...that is why it is so important that we, as owners, make the very best choices we can.
