What do YOU look for in a trainer?
What do you guys look for in a person when sending your horse off to the trainers?
Allowing me to be as much a part of the process as possible.
Tough but not a bitch.
Critical but not obnoxious.
Feeds the horses good.
Has atleast one older horse around the barn that she owns...this one is really important to me...shows trust and she isn't just a horse trader.
Keeps a clean barn...shows organization and dedication.
Answers questions clearly...not afraid to admit she doesn't know.
And a "she"...I have never had great experience with male trainers. I think training horses has alot to do with reading the horse's emotions. Women are just better emotion readers.
I forgot to add...competes! This one is important to me. I want to know my trainer is out there in the world winning at what she claims to be good at.
you look at : his horses, they way he connects with them. if you can get to see him ride would be a plus.
look at anything possibly supsicious at the barn
ask around if they know him
try to look a his name on google
Basically you would go for a trainer that has good reputation,, and titles and someone calm and honest.
