I do not use a trainer. I do however use an instructor to teach me how to teach my horse.

I have a trainer come out every other week. We work on my horse's "problems" and then I have two weeks to improve on it. It's so far working flawlessly. I've gotten my horse into a low and round frame, and I'm starting to get her right lead. This was all thanks to my trainer, whom I've had for about 2 months.
Your horse will ALWAYS have something to improve on, you will ALWAYS have something to improve on. I think a trainer is the best way to help you improve both you and your horse.

I work with a trainer for weekly lessons. It's great to have another set of eyes on my horse (and on me!)

It was also great for me this winter when it was cold and rainy and gross outside...I HAD to go ride because I had a scheduled lesson! No rolling over and going back to sleep on Thursdays for me!

It also brings me out of my routine when I work with a trainer. I'll get in ruts where I do the same thing with my horse every day. He doesn't get well-rounded training this way and he and I get bored. Having my weekly training sessions spices things up a little and my trainer always has new things for us to try.

I have a trainer and I absoluetely love her! I couldn't imagine not having a trainer she helps me so much with my equitation because it can feel right and look right to you but it could actually be horrid and completely wrong

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl

I'm starting up with a trainer for my school's equestrian team, but at home there aren't any around. :(. I don't know if it benefits my horse nearly as much as it benefits me--she and I have our own way of doing things. :)

I have always ridden with trainers. I take 1-2 lessons a week and my trainer comes with us to many of our shows(about 2 weekends a month). I feel the need to have a trainer because I want to improve. My trainer helps my horse and me understand each other much better and when she is with us we both ride better.

I think no matter your level of riding, having a trainer is always a great opportunity to learn more. It really depends on what your goals are.
Most people I know at stable I board at all show or want to show but there are a handful of people who own horses for the pleasure of owning and are very content with that alone.

Well im in the same boat as upnover, im a trainer, although i dont ride anymore much. My girls get trained by me atleast 2 days a week, and then they have Pony Club on the weekend (every weekend) so there are 3 trainers there. I also try every 3 months to take them to a professional in Maryborough QLD (State Equestrain Centre) and just brush up. And try to eliminate any 'bad habits'.

I also believe you should always (most of the time esp when training a youngin) have someone with some knowledge on the ground. So they can help you abit.
