Looking for Advice on private Hunter/Jumper Trainer
Our private farm in Florida (medium sized 15-20 horses) is looking at hiring a trainer just to train and compete our own horses. We currently use a couple different trainers in the area (depending on the discipline) but are trying to find a more cost effective and easier way of doing things. The thought, is to hire one young up and coming rider/trainer that would like to concentrate solely on bring 4-5 horses up to the GP level.
Any thoughts on:
3. Suggestions as to where to find someone qualified and easy to get along with.
4. Starting Salary (We were thinking 35K + commissions on sales and percentage of winnings plus all expenses at shows and a place to live on property)
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
