I've seen a few horses come back from trainers with a million more problem's than they ever went with, thus, I am the only one who trains my horses. ;)

If I were to send them out, I'd get references, see their horses, watch them ride, question them relentlessly, and get more references. :)

PS Robs, that's a gorgeous horse you've got in your avatar. :)

I've met very few horses that are untrainable. I do believe that there are some out there that are just mentally unstable and not meant to ever have a rider on their back, but I think 99% of them are caused by rider/trainer error.

I had a QH gelding that I rehabilitated for three years before I traded him off for a Reg'd Arabian. He will still always carry around some of his issues but a was a great gymkhana horse for one who "tried to kill me!" I bit my tongue from saying that she probably deserved it at the time.

I train for a barn that is known for our slew of "problem horses" and almost 100% of the time, it's not the horse that's the problem

There have been MANY "trained" horses come to the farm, and I must admit their owners were very good trainers.
Very consistent too- one owner trained all of her horses perfectly how to rear when asked to load.
I now own one of above "trainer's" horses and am currently trying to break him of turning away from you and running off when he doesn't want to do something. It's very frustrating trying to fix things...and watching owners work with their horses reveals SO much. I can always tell when an owner was there over the weekend because some of my newly installed buttons always seem to be missing lol.
