    I live in Montana, there are plenty of cowboys here if a horse needs to be broncked out, per se. My point is that even they wont do it for free, their time and safety is worth something. Never would I advertise that I would work with potentially dangerous horses- there are plenty of other people out there willing to take that risk... I say potentially dangerous because you do not know these animals, or if their owners are fairly representing them. You'll learn more from tuning up horses for and with a trainer, rather than trying to fix/train green ones and increasing the likelihood of getting hurt. This is not an attack- would anyone disagree that working with a green horse has the same risks as a seasoned horse? ALL horses are dangerous; but green or unhandled ones can me much more of a risk. Around me, no trainer worth their salt will do [I]anything[I] with someone else's horse for free... Their reputations speak for themselves and keeps their barn full, and the bills paid.

    I found my teenage (sometime) help through my church. I don't expect them to train for me, beyond what I ask them to do on the ground and under saddle. Isn't there anyone you know that won't use you to train their "brats"? It's dangerous to do this. You don't know what their fears are, or how spoiled they are until you "discover" it. It isn't a criticism of what you already know.
    I would search for somebody who has well mannered horses already broken, and just needs them worked, or needs more hours on the horses, to finish them up.
    One bad fall or kick and your training career is over.
