Hi everyone! My problem that i'd like to ask advice on is how I should switch trainers.
My previous trainer was coming to my barn every day helping me work with my horse Squaw. We've taken the winter off, and now im starting to get back out and retrain. There is a trainer across the road who i'd like to use but that would mean retraining my horse into a different style of training. My horse was being worked with Down Under Horsemanship (Clinton Anderson style). She still remembers the basics, but its kind of hard for a 13-almost-14 year old to reteach seeming as this is my first training expirence. And I like DUH. I don't want to learn a different way either.
But anyways, my trainer got a new job training horses all day 5 days a week, so he's unable to work with me.
Plus, the trainer across the road (Julie), works strictly on English riding. She is willing to teach Western and all but she knows more English (mostly dressage and jumping).
I just don't know what to do. Im hoping someone can advise me on this choice or how to teach DUH on my own.
Thank you in advance!
