Zap, I was referring to horses in general. Some horses are easy and willing, needing only direction but as a whole (all of horsedom) they need to be taught.
A good student is not necessarily a good teacher. So a good rider is not necessarily a good trainer. Starting a young horse is very different then teaching collection, or a reining stop, or even how to rate a cow. I was suggesting that the OP may want to put a good foundation on their horse before taking over the training.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
