So, from people who have been training other's horses for years, how did you get into it? If it's informal, do you have any sort of agreement? Any advice?
I work almost exclusively with the abused, neglected, and emotionally unsound horses, and I've had great luck bringing them back to a more balanced mental state. I've also worked with three or four OTTB's who were retrained as jumpers/hunters but retained track-related issues. But outside of them, it's mostly solving bucking, kicking, striking problems in mid-age to older horses. Just quite basic stuff, really. I'm not looking to make this into a living, I'm not even sure if I'm looking to be paid, but I'd like to take what is one of my better skills and keep it alive while in school.
Thanks so much, I'd appreciate any advice, books to point me to, or experience you can share.
