    Yearling
    I pretty much am my own trainer but I do use the trainer at our barn too for show training at least. I know little to squat about showing and I finally decided I'm going to do Showmanship with my horse, despite what I've said previously, so I have her helping me out with my horse and squaring up and the likes. :] For everything else? I do it myself.

    I'm sure I would do that too if I was going to show Vega. I feel I have enough experience to keep me safe, and know when to get off and stuff. If I felt I had a problem that was over my head, then i'll turn to a trainer.

    Ohdear. I didn't mean it as an insult. I was just saying. I do most of the training of my horses myself. I go to a trainer if im in over my head, they show me what to do and I move on.

    Having someone on the ground when working with a horse will always get you a different perspective and insight no matter the experience you have.
    I think you are always better off working with someone.

    I put no, but I am going to a trainer in a couple of weeks for a confidence building session. There are other reasons besides just learning to ride for using a trainer. I know some dressage riders spend years under a trainer to perfect their art.

    Exactly. Like I said no matter the level of riding or experience, having someone from the ground will always give you a different view of things and learn/improve yourself and your mount.

    I'm going to get into video recording my riding time and then i'm going to critique it so I know what I need to improve upon. While I know that's not as good as having a trainer, I think that will work well for me

There's always more to learn and always someone better then you!
    No, I don't think your post came across as cocky at all. I'm sorry if what I wrote made it seem as if I felt that way!

    Exactly!!
    I spent 13 years with a trainer, and am now training horses for profit, which is awesome. I will definitely take lessons again as soon as I get the time and funds to... although right now it seems I either have one or the other.
