this wasnt meant to be a controversial thread and i would really like it to stay that way. i had a bad experience. i believe my horse can be trained TO A DEGREE to do reining. i also said i never wanted to go to futurities or anything therefore i dont need him to be the best at it. i will also be continuing dressage and jumpign training with him. i just want someone to try and train him to do reining. i dont care if it doesnt happen my whole point was the way i was treated. this seems to be missed over and over again. i dont care if someone tries and finds he doesnt respond well or is crap at it.
do any of you know what its like to innocently ring a trainer and end up feeling like you want to burst into tears because of the way you were treated??? i can handle hearing no but i cant handle being told im stupid blah blah regardless of what the trainer thinks of the situation there is absolutely no excuse for treating someone the way they treated me.
when i started this thread i was hurt and disillusioned with the western world as this was my introduction to it. i meant no offence to western trainers in general and certainly didnt want people arguing over it. my experience was awful until i found someone (actually 3 reputable trainers) who were happy to take the challenge and that changed my views. there is nothing for people to defend. i spoke only of the trainers i had encountered
thanks for everyones replies. lets let sleeping dogs lie
