    Wanting to start trainin

    Since I re-trained my cob, I've been dying to get another one to train, but can't afford it. Is there anyway around the cost of buying another horse,but still training?

    Yes, you could train someone else's horse for money. Be real sure of your skill level before taking on that venture though.

    Or volunteer your training services at a rescue. They can always use the help & it will help place the horses in new homes.

    I love Natisha's idea of the horse rescue. I know most of that is volunteer work but it will allow you to work with all types of levels of horses and can even give you a good name in the horse area, then you can go in later saying "I have trained x number of horses ranging from this to that" and charge for it when worknig with someone elses animals. Also you'd be helping rescue's find homes, which is a major plus.

    I agree with Natisha too. A horse rescue would be a great way to work with a range of horses, test out your own strengths (and weaknesses, if any - everybody has some, we're only human) and help you to grow as a trainer. Once you have established a good name for yourself, you can train people's horses for a bit of money. Also, if you do train at a rescue, there might be one horse that you get a particular bond with, and you may just have to make a small donation to buy it (solving the money issue of buying another, your need to train, and the rescue's need to rehome)

    Win-win all around.

    The rescue idea is great, but the closest rescue centre to here is Cambridge which is an hour drive away and I wouldn't be able to afford the petrol. Haha.
    Momoboys, where abouts are you? =]
