Individual stables may have their own resident trainers available and exclude outside trainers. You may have to board at some stables to use their trainers. Others will let your outside trainer work with you at their facility. Trainer policy at is a primary consideration when selecting a suitable stable and should be included on your checklist.

Some stables require you board at the stable to receive lessons from their trainers while others let you train with their trainers without a boarding arrangement.
Ocala Horse Trainers
Horse trainers may train at their own facility, or they may work at someone else's stable, or they may travel to their client's home base. Horse trainers work with both horses and riders to assure both members of the team are on the same page.
Horse trainers come in all skill levels and specialties. Some specialize in basic beginner horseback riding training while others are show riders themselves with all levels of accomplishments. Selecting the right trainer requires first setting your goals as a rider, and then researching available trainers that will help you achieve your goals.
