The problem with training

 

The problem with horse training is that society is set up to believe that you can buy a service and have things the way you want in a certain time frame. People look at horse training as if they’re spending their money on a product. And yet even the best horse trainers will tell you the horse takes its own time, and no one can guarantee a horse will be doing what you want from it when you want from it. The other problem is that even if your trainer can get t done with your horse, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you will be able to. Getting a horse right takes an amount of commitment on the owners part to develop the same type of relationship that the trainer has, otherwise how can you expect from your horse for yourself what your trainer gets, when it’s they who have put in the hours, th and sweat, the patience and the desire to get Along with that horse? You aren’t spending money on a tune up for your car that you can take home and drive.
The fact that money is involved leads people to believe they deserve something for what they paid, and they do, but, it happens in the animals time, not the humans. I think any good trainer would say they would do this for free if they could, just to help horses and people. And yet, we all have to eat.

  1. This is great. Did you write it? I have seen it doing the rounds on Facebook (without credit to an author) and I searched trying to find out who the author is before sharing it.
    Thanks.
