    It's interesting how many people suggest getting expert advice. At the same time, there are many experienced people posting who do not all agree on the best approaches. Some suggest diving in and learning by doing, while others imply that until you have hundreds of hours of training, can get a horse to fart rainbows, and have enough cash on hand to put your kids through graduate school at Harvard, you're not ready for horse ownership.

    I'm a complete newb when it comes to horses, but in the field where I am an expert I've seen some pretty stupid ideas coming from people who have loads of experience. So while I agree that getting expert help is a good idea, I'd caution anyone against relying too much on experts. In my experience, in most fields it's best to rely on experts to tell you what things you need to know about, then to educate yourself about those things and trust your own judgement.

    Ahhhhhhhh, but what defines the expert?

    Here lies a whole different ball game!

    When I read of many so called trainers and what they are saying and doing it makes me cringe.
