Anyone can be a "trainer".

I doubt this girl is a "trainer," rather than a trainer based on the photographic evidence. But at the end of the day, that's all either of us has to go on. Your evidence to the contrary seems to be that A. She's not wearing a helmet and B. She's not riding in an arena, which is all rather silly. Headgear does not a trainer make, and a trainer that can only get results in an arena probably has holes in their own training.

Jynx looks great, and I wish your TRAINER was in my area to put rides on my horse.

That is so lovely! Absolutely love how you guys were able to get those transition photos from the beginning of the ride, to the next, more engaged photos. Can't wait to see how he develops-great riding on your part!

Nicely done.

New horses often throw hissy fits at first. It takes a while for them to understand that leg does not mean speed up, but to energize and go forward. This causes most of the initial confusion/pissiness.

Keep up the good work, but be patient and don't push too far too fast. Often young or new trainers might be in a hurry to prove themselves, so just be aware. Right now, I really am impressed with this young lady.

Wow, Jynxie the lil superstar! I love the photos, she looks beautiful. I like the pics in the middle too, we all are so used to seeing the pretty end point pics but I can really imagine how the ride went down, she is such a cheeky pony ha ha.

Great work and all the very best with her continued training!

As for the helmet comments, while I agree it is a valid discussion point and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, the appropriate place to discuss it would be on a helmet pros/cons thread. Try here:

New Helmet rules

Or here:


Or here:

Riding Instructor not wearing helmet...grrrr

But as it pertains to this thread, the rider/trainer/monkey on the back of the horse probably wouldn't have ridden any differently had they been wearing a helmet.

As for whether she is a trainer or not, I think MM addressed that in the opening vignette. Whether she is a trainer or a Trainer makes little difference, the proof is in the pudding.

Nice pics MM.

Come on over to my neck of the woods and venture to some of the top level dressage barns, and share your thoughts with the dressage trainers face to face, and see what kind of response you get.

You'll see no helmets, just baseball caps.

Heck, I've even seen 3* - 4* Eventers get on students horses at clinics, and ride them around without helmets on. Why not share your thoughts with them "Anyone can be a Trainer" - and see what you get in response.


MM I think your mare looks wonderful. Congrats on the new Trainer, and I look forward to seeing more of the two of you together!

Jynxy looks so good! Bet a couple of months ago you would have never thought it would get here with all the trouble she was causing.

Alright let's stay on focus here. A rider who chooses not to wear a helmet, simply chooses not to wear a helmet-it affects no one but her. Let's keep focus on those lovely photos.

True that, I am guilty as charged for getting off topic Sorry MM.
