what do you look for???

star will be going off to a trainer in march, i am stuck on which one i'm going to pick.....it's like choosing a day care for a child....grrrrr, the choices i have are...one is about 20 mins down the road from our farm, i like the idea of going over and ridsding with the trainer after he is broke to so that the trainer can work with both of us......the other trainer is about 2 hours away with now chance of working with the trainer, but the trainer is a good one.....just wondering what you would look for in a trainer???

I go with as many recommendations as possible at first. Then I look for PATIENT one. Actually, the best if you can work close with the trainer (and those strongly recommended to me by other people were really insistent to go that way).

If you think the closer trainer is good and you can work with him - go for that one.

Someone who will do exactly what you want them to do, what you pay them to do. Look at the horses they have worked with before and compare from what they used to be to what they are now after the trainer has worked with them. Take a few lessons from the trainer before you make your decision.
