This is just kind of me feeling sad, and I wouldn' mind a little advice. Let me start off by saying if you don't agree with having horses trained for futurities , then you probably should respond with such. My 2015 filly POLTREYGEIST (REY DUAL X IMA ROCKIN DOC OLENA) Has been in training for just about 1 1/2 years with a reined cow horse trainer. This is a reputable trainer who doesn't train a ton of horses any more, he will take a select few each year. He is also nrcha judge. Originally ghost was suppose to be shown end of May - this is when we found out she gets a little nervous in a large herd of cows, and she threw a fit, so he decided not to show her. Her next show was scheduled for end of June, and he couldn't show because another horse had flipped on top of him (He is fine, just bruised) the next show was suppose to be this weekend, and the fair grounds flooded. The next show is a huge show in loveland the 17th through the19th. It's huge. But I'm having a problem with how I feel about this trainer now. Like.. I personally feel like he should have started her on the herd work sooner, and should have shown her sooner. But at the same time, he' the professional, and I do trust his opinion. I' just worried because she has no show experience , and her first one is going to be the midamerica show. He says she is the most talented 3y/o He has had in years. But I feel like I've spent over 20k on training with no evidence. I'm also scared that I'm going to send trouble to him and he won' campaign him appropriately. I' debating on bring ghost home at the end of August, and riding her, and working with a different trainer so I can show her in the non pro next year. Or do I continue to work with this trainer ? Am I just being paranoid ?
