Finding a Horse Trainer for Your Horse and Riding Specialty

Professional horse trainers combine expertise in education, horsemanship, horse behavior and language and specific skills like reining, cutting or jumping, to help teach horses and horse owners how things are done in the equestrian world. They have an understanding of equine development that's part information, part experience and part intuition; the best trainers seem nearly magical in the way they communicate with horses.
Whether you're contemplating riding lessons or thinking of training to compete in shows, working with a good trainer can advance your technique and understanding far beyond what mere practice could. But there are good trainers and bad ones. A good trainer can take a "bad" horse and make it "good" through behavior modification and a persistent, respectful working relationship.

Tips for Choosing and Finding a Good Horse Trainer

    How do you find a good trainer? Look first for qualifications. Has the trainer been through a well-known course resulting in certification from the training facility? Has the trainer worked in the area where you need help? You wouldn't ask a dressage specialist to work with your five year old child and a new pony: you'd probably want to find someone who specializes in ponies and children. Ask for references, or get referrals from your farrier or your trusted vet. And, as in any case where you will be working with someone professionally, it's important that you like and trust that person. If you don't "click" with a trainer, you may want to keep looking. If the trainer handles your horse in ways that make you nervous, consider trying someone else.

The Right Saddle for Cutting or Reining

For cutting and reining horse events, you definitely need a saddle thatís designed to help you "ride in balance and sit the stop." First, you want a saddle that was designed and built specifically for reining or cutting. Both of these designs have their individual advantages but remember, just because the manufacturer "calls" it a reining saddle doesnít mean it was designed "well" for reining.
