I am getting a brood mare "finished." A friend's daughter volunteered, who is truly a "horse whisperer."(She's in high school.) The problem is that she is taking awhile to get the job done. I have been told that a professional trainer would take her on his property, and work her every day for about a month, for what she needs done. (She's well trained in ground work, and is use to a saddle.) I am wondering what are the norms in training. How long should it take? What's a normal charge?
Thanks for your insight!
