Anyway, she is 8 yrs old, has had lots of good training, but want her worked on her leads, stops, etc before the arena will be ready here.
I had a 14 yr old girl reply to my ad, but of course as much as I appreciated her writing to me, I will not let a 14yr old work with my horse , one because she is a minor, and two, other than her mom, she could not give me references since once she is done training other peoples horses, she doesn't keep their numbers. I politely thanked her but said no.
So, am I asking for the impossible? Of course, I know I will have to take her out of my area to even find someone that has ground and not snow, but can't seem to find anyone.
Is a tuneup on an 8 yr old unrealistic?
