084. Roundtable: Assistant Trainers

084. Roundtable: Assistant Trainers

We hosted a dynamic group of assistant trainers: Coltin Crystal, Crysta Brown, Lily Zomparelli, and Dillon Holden. They shared their unique perspectives from the trenches of the horse training world, giving us a glimpse into their personal journeys, from early experiences to their current roles in shaping the future of horse training. Our guests discussed the day-to-day realities of being an assistant trainer, the challenges they encounter, and the rewards that keep their passion alive. They also offered advice for those aspiring to follow in their footsteps and engaged in a rapid-fire round for some light-hearted fun and personal insights.

This episode provided an insightful look at the evolving horse training industry, discussing changes, adapting to new trends, and where to follow our guests' continuing journeys. For anyone passionate about horse training or curious about the life of an assistant trainer, this episode was packed with invaluable insights and stories.

A note from Liz and Jenna - We want to take a moment to acknowledge the recent passing of two members of our broader horse community. Our thoughts are with their families and friends during this difficult time. This episode was recorded prior to these events (mid-February), and as we share it, we do so with respect and remembrance for those we've lost.
