I am going to have to search for a trainer to break my little guy. I've got like a year to go, but I am already thinking about it. I would really prefer to trailer in for training sessions, but that might not be feasable. I am already stressed about it. I would go as often as I could to see my little guy. Most trainer around here like to do 60 days, but if the trainer is good 90 wouldnt hurt.
One of the trainers I am going to look into require the owners to come out at least once a week, and sometimes even participate. My biggest fear is that my little guy will go great for the trainer, but I'll need to do alot of work to get him to go well with me. So I really like sessions were you train your horse with the trainer supervising/ instructing you what to do.
