Retraining Horse and myself
So, I'll try to make a long story short. I got my mare when she was 3. I was 13 at the time (I'm 21 now and she's 11), and now that I look back on it, it was a bad idea -- too young of a horse and too young a rider, but can't do anything about that now. What is boils down to is I'm not comfortable riding my mare anymore because she spooks often, needs a lot of work on ground, etc. I can't afford to take her to college with me, so she's been home, and I try to work with her ground manners whenever I'm home, and those are improving. But I feel I really need the help of a trainer so that I can regain my confidence and also get her trained. I'm not looking to train for competition, just for a well rounded, reliable trail horse. I'm having difficulty finding trainers in the area I live however. All of the ones here seem to be training for jumping, dressage, western pleasure, etc. Do any of you know any trainers would be able to work with me on the above specifications that are in Fortville/Fishers/Noblesville, IN area? Thanks.
