How to find a quality trainer
When choosing a trainer for your young horse, you want to choose one who is focused
One who knows how to properly choose and fit equipment
A trainer who progresses your horse at an appropriate speed, keeps things moving forward. As opposed to those money-grabbers who move your horse soooo slooowwwwlllyyyyy, keeping your horse in training for as long as possible to wring every last dime from your pockets – sometimes upwards of 5 months!
Coincidentally, 5 months is the age of the horse in the photos – she’s advanced for her age. Clearly.
You want a trainer who has experience using rope.
Lots of rope.
Here’s a good tidbit: When looking for a trainer for your youngun, take a look at his other projects. Are they in good health? Have happy expressions on their face, like this one?
And most importantly, the trainer must have a plaid saddle pad to use its magical plaid powers to keep the saddle in place as the too large rider for the too young and underdeveloped baby attempts to haul herself atop this tiny creature.
I tip my hat, much like the little filly is tipping in the above photo, to your asshatery, Mr. “Trainer”.
There are very few topics we all agree upon (which is cool, the differences of opinions are what sparks debates!) but methinks this may be one. But, for arguments sake, I challenge y’all to come up with a counter argument! Let the pro’s weigh in on why the above documented training practices are acceptable. Come on! I dares ya! And it has to be realistic-ish! No aliens and no government experimentation (unless I comment about them. DIBS!)
ps. I am committed to making light of this, we’ve had too many poor little babies on Snarky Rider and Fugly recently.
