I often get asked “to be a horse trainer where do I start? Are there any books or specific trainers you recommend”? Though I have a certified horse trainer program my first response is learn from any and ALL trainers no matter the discipline or style. The value in exposure to multiple horse trainers and styles is you will learn what works for you while discovering your own style and gifts. Learning to train horses is only a fraction of what goes into being a good trainer, you must also learn about hoof care, health care, physiology and psychology of the horse.
Getting your hands on as much information as you can digest will broaden and deepen your scope of who you are and what your gifts and talents are in relationship to horses. Also continued education is key to ongoing success as new technology uncovers deeper understanding of horses, our world and our relationships with ALL.
Learning to train horses is just the beginning of a lifelong adventure into discovering your greatest potential and talents, and remember Problems are Not Always Training Issues.
