  3. You must be passionate to train horses and money can’t be the motivation. This career path is long and tiring. You won’t get super rich being a horse trainer and might have heartbreak if the horse you care for leaves.  Your passion for horses will make the career worthwhile.
  4. As any teacher, you will need to be patient as horse training is a slow gradual process. If you go in with the mind-set that you are going to achieve something every day, you might be disappointed. A good horse trainer has patience with the horses and themselves.
  5. Excellent horse trainers have the drive to increase their knowledge. They have the drive to make sure they continue to improve themselves which will make you a better trainer.
  6. Above all else when you are training a horse you must have self-control. You will need to control your temper otherwise you will erase all the progress that you have made. When you have self-control of your emotions, the horse will feel confident and perform better.
