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 don't 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 don't care if it doesnt happen my whole point was the way I was treated. This seems to be missed over and over again. I don't 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 can't 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
