    Umm, you seem to be cotradicting yourself, let me read back what I got,

    I see horses that arnt trained and I think the owners don't know what they are doing and need my services, I can make some money on sale commssions.

    I don't want to work for them because they have an owner that doesnt know what he is doing.

    Well if they had an owner that knew what he was doing they wouldnt need your services, I'm not sure what the problem is. You are trainer, the horses need training, the owners could use some training. So whats the problem ?

    Food for thought: Other people's dirt can rub off on you. What I mean is that even if you do a great job, if these people have "that" reputation you being connected with them could damage your good name with future clients.

    I would go have a look around and see how you feel after that. If there any still red flags after that, then thank them for their time and walk away. Just like it was mentioned above, you don't want your reputation tarnished by these folks if there is no help for them!

    I believe in listening to your gut I also believe you should know 1st hand and not from gossip. What can it hurt to go and find out for yourself?

    The rumors may be totally off base.

    I shall throw in another - how will you ever know the truth about how much a horse sells for? It may not sell for the advertised price. Does that mean your commission is out the window? Yup? If you go thro with this you are setting yourself up for a huge fall with both your reputation and financially.
