How far would you drive for a good trainer? I had one six hours away.... it worked great for my horse but I was unable to learn with him. The couple we had closer I ran into an issue with one but I LEARNED sooo much more... he wasn't exactly in my discipline but trained similar on rein part, but my horse started weaving there... strange because I had eight months training prior. It would be wrong to say it was the trainer although it is possible. Perhaps the new place and different stressors. He worked fine there at first then got sour.
I have two other trainers 2 1/2 hours away but one is pro pro high push to win. This is great for the pros I want in between... the other rides and trains different for my ride style also very good.
I chose a discipline specific guy that really connected like a pro with my new horse. He is four hours away...I will be racking on the miles now.
NOT LOOKING for advice or trainer bashing I steer clear they all have something to offer. Just curious what others do... and how far you will go for a good trainer.
