Your Trainer Works Hard So You Don't Have To
What makes a 'Trainer'? Riding horses all day? Being overpaid for doing seemingly simple things? But at the same time having trouble to make ends meet every month? There are many contradictions out there but unfortunately, some of them are true. And we should absolutely talk about that.
Because we are so much more than just 'a trainer'. We are the ones who gradually expose your horse to certain troubled areas, so you can have safe rides. We are the ones who carefully swing our leg over their backs for the first time, giving them a strong foundation for you to work with. Our job description ranges from crash-dummy to being a social worker. Why? Because we don't believe in fixed approaches; we believe in the process of every individual horse. Because ultimately we want to give you a 'ready' and reliable horse with said foundation. We enjoy our present rides with them just as much as we want you to enjoy your future ones, together.
Building such a foundation takes time. Transferring all of this information to a horse’s owner also takes time. We as trainers know the emotional investment it takes, which often makes the financial investment pale in comparison. Meaning lots of good trainers will actually give you more than just your money's worth. No matter the future discipline of your horse; a good foundation can help get you there, so always invest in good trainers. They are your horse's building blocks.
