    Horse Trainers

    I was curious if anyone knew of any good quality horse trainers in the Austin, San Antonio, Waco, or Killeen TX area. One of my horses is having behavioral issues that are beyond my knowledge of fixing.

    Are you needing a specific discipline? Or just someone to help with this issue?

    And what breed too?

    Go to your breed website, and there should be a list of trainers for your state on it.

    Or can type in "horse training in..." and google it, using your state and any specifics you want, such as gaited horse trainer or barrel horse....

    It's for a thoroughbred/clydesdale cross. He has a lot of issues. Before we got him he was allowed to bully everyone (people). He would/will use his shear brute force and drag us around where he wants to go. He has no respect for anyone or anything. He won't load into a trailer. He kicks out at us when we ask him to do more than a walk. And that is with using a dressage whip to punish him every time he does it. He basically has a total lack of respect for anyone who works with him. Of course he acted like a perfect angel before he became ours. I've had other people (not trainers) work with him and he does the sane thing with them. So, he needs a trainer who can work his issues out since I obviously can't do it. I know my limits and I have reached them.

    That can be typical draft cross behavior. They hit those walls sometimes when you ask them to move forward under saddle. Takes time and patience to fix but very fixable.

    Thanks. It took us 4 hours last night to get him into a trailer. We didn't give up because we didn't want him to win. I'm sore in joints and muscles that I didn't know could hurt. I just don't know how to proceed from here. I don't have a saddle that fits him yet, and don't trust him nor my balance to try bareback. So therefore I am looking for a trainer to help me work with him.
