Ebony, let me put it to you this way. I have been riding for nearly 40 years now and when I got my green horses, I got a trainer to help me train them.
He is not training them for me, he is HELPING me to train my own horse.
He works with them for an hour, to assess the progress made in his absence and then I work with them for an hour with his observation and together we configure a plan for me to work them additional hours during the week.
His observations and corrections of my technical riding are invaluable, as well as his observations on the over all picture of progress.
Honestly, I am not as concerned for the welfare of your brother as I am for the long-term well being of the horse.
“You spend your whole life with horses and just about the time you think you have them figured out, a horse comes along that tells you otherwise.” –quote from my very wizened trainer
