Hey thanks for the answeres, in severe cases it does make sense if you need someone to help you fix a problem that an be dangerous for you and the gorse if you do feel it is too much for you.
I was just wondering about the more or less "tune ups".
There is an old saying a horse is just as good as its rider...
So fir the tune up or any other reason where you give up the horse, shouldn't there be atleast some lessons at the end so you can see and feel what the trainer has done and how he rides? So you can follow along that line?
I understand that teaching something new to a horse can be difficult and hard, and sometimes it might be a good idea to give a horse to a trainer, but you take your horse there and get it back, with the task done, but how do you know what to do?
@desperate housewife : this is why I asked! I wanted to know the motivaton to do that! Why give a horse up to train?
Like firelight said, you have no time to do it, but on the other hand, why do I have a horse then, time is money...
I I am devoted to something I will strive to get there, of course it is easyer to have your horse trained by someone else, but I think the important part goes missing, that the owner of that horse learns the new things... I mean ok, if you have enough money you just keep sending the horse back and forth from the trainer to you!
For me, I would want to take the long route and learn what is needed to present a horse in a show. Well I rarely go to competitions becuase the atmosphere is not my thing, but still I want to learn all that good stuff and teach my horse...
But shoulnd' I be able to master these things so I can actually ride my horse???
