Honestly one of the best things you can do is go to trials, plunk yourself down, and just watch. And watch. See all the difference performance styles, the handling styles, the contact performance options. Watching people's videos online is great but really being there and feeling the courses and seeing all these runs with so many skill levels and partnerships all on the same course back to back...and decide what you want your team to look like for the type of courses you expect to run. Develop that picture in your mind, and then tackle people and trainers and the great resources here to figure out how you are going to accomplish that. But without starting with the picture of what YOU want, your training will inevitably lack focus and consistency, and you will do a lot more retraining later.

Just my 2 cents though
