There was a quote that I found one time something along the lines of the day that you stop learning..... Either way, when it comes to horses there is no stopping learning. You can learn something new each and every day.
Exactly what I was trying to say.....trainers train....that's what they do for a living. You find REAL trainers at horse shows, showing off their work. You also find REAL trainers breaking out young horses for clients whether it's going to a show horse or a trail horse, or taking in problem horses for an overhaul etc. These people are trainers, and has nothing to do with paying dues.
