Trying horses without a trainer? How much does your trainer charge?
I was curious how you felt about a reasonably experienced (can ride young, silly, etc. without scaring anyone) young adult rider trying horses (Under $25k) alone first, and bringing a trainer along for the horses that make the "final cut"? Also, how much do you pay your trainer (relatively BNT) to come along on these sorts of buying missions (I'm asking mostly so I can make a preliminary budget. I know they will be beyond fair.)?
