There is a lot of info to be gained from a riders earning report.
I don't think earns means everything. A top earner around here also boards horses. One of my close friends boards there and talks about some of the methods used and I wouldn't allow him to touch my horse. Abuse is not training. Sure he gets results but at what cost to the horse?
I can be rough at times but the horses don't shake when I come near.
