I think you need some more years on ay before you start advertising for lessons. Just my opinion though. I have been riding for my entire life, trained a few horses and still don't think I know enough to consider myself a trainer...

People probably aren't commenting because nobody in their right mind would take lessons or let them near their horse when they've only been riding for FIVE years. I don't care how good you are, I'll spend the extra bucks and get someone who actually has a resume. I'm sure that sounds rude, but it's the truth. I've been riding for 24 years and I wouldn't advertise my services as a coach or trainer. I've done both for free, and I'll take on problem horses for a fee, but people seek me out, I don't advertise myself because I'm NOT qualified as a trainer or coach.

I sincerely hope a single Standardbred gelding isn't your only claim to fame as a super trainer...

Well thanks for the comments. I understand the opinions. Certainly you guys all make sense. At my barn we offer lessons and I do train there, thus the advertisement. I certainly dont claim to be a super trainer. I simply offer lessons etc. But thanks guys :)

Feel free to leave any comments on the video here or on youtube. Its the one i used for college :)

You should be taking lessons rather than giving them. I don't mean that to be rude but you have a lot to work on. Your horse had no collection and very little softness as far as I could see. You were bouncing all over the saddle so some work on equitation is needed on your part. If you advertise that you can help troubled horses you should really be capable of handling and riding them and I doubt that you are. Please don't take this as telling you to quit horses but you owe it to yourself and your horses to get better educated before you take young and/or troubled horses to train.

If there is someone who is willing to pay her for her services, so be it.

She wanted comments and that is what she got. I'm sure they are not what she expected but they are what she needs. My elders also taught me not to ask a question that I don't want to know the answer to.

I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but I kinda have to agree with Kevin on this one. Equineangel, you really should spend some more time with a quality instructor to learn the finer points before trying to teach others. If you'd like to get your feet wet giving lessons, volunteering with therapeutic centers, or even offering to do some leadline lessons for your trainer is a great way to get started!

Ok, I'm closing this thread only because all the advise that can be given has been given and the OP has accepted it gracefully.
