I would really like to find a good dressage trainer for Cookie and I, however all I seem to find is people that "have ridden all their lives" and no one that's really done anything in terms of competition.
The people at my barn have recommended a trainer they give rave reviews, but considering she's apparently good at everything, western, jumping, dressage, etc. and has never competed.....I'm not sure about that.
Am I wrong to think it's better to find a trainer that specializes in one area?
What sort of questions should I ask about their experience?
Having a hard time sorting through the backyard trainers to find someone truly experienced that can teach me the correct way to do something. I don't want to have to unlearn it all later!
