You can read about Danny's accomplishments on his page.  I have done all of my training with him. When I got him he wasn't even two yet.  He was halter broke and that was all. Everything that he has earned we have earned together. He and all my horses are trained with natural horsemanship methods taken from all the famous natural horsemanship trainers, Parelli, John Lyons, Lynn Palm, Clinton Anderson.  I am always learning and open minded to new ideas.  I have rode in clinics for Gina Gardner, Van Bert Farms with his trainer H.T. Derickson. Have been an auditor at too many clinics too list. 
What qualifies someone to be a trainer?
This is my philosophy
Does the trainer respect you as a horse owner and want to guide you and encourage you to have the most positive experience with your horse ?
Does the trainer treat your horse with kindness and the correct disipline when needed?
Do you feel uplifted and more knowledgeable at the end of your lesson?
Is your horse  more confident, safer or better gaited horse than when you started?
Are you growing with your current trainer?
Does your trainer have accomplishment or do any of their students have accomplishments that you admire?
If you can't answer a yes to all of the above questions then where is your training failing you?
I believe all of the above and that those who take advantage of the new horse owner or the novice is hurting  us all who are involved in the horse industry.
