Unhappy Dressage trainer or cheater

Dear all,
Could someone please tell me is there some honest dressage trainer existing?! I had one very bad experience with one trainer from Sinsen near Recklinghausen, Germany, Mr. Meaniehead! Everything about him and his story is one big illusion. We sold our old school master because he was namely not good enough, and we buy one young potential, but later discovered with a health problem. We lost two years of my training and more than 200k of money. I was very enthusiast for learning and my parents to investing in my future, but now we are scared to ask anyone of well known trainers, because they all know each other and we are afraid that are all the same. Could some one send me a good contact, or is better for me to stay in Sweden?!
Thks.

*confused*
You live in Germany or in Sweden?

What is the riding system that you are following? You have your horse at your private place and you pay for a trainer just for you?
You share with other riders?
You ride on your own and once a week you to a Riding school?
You have achieved a good dressage level and you want to go higher or you want to achieve a good level - to begin with?
Does any of your friends rides dressage?

The "perfect" trainer is very hard to find, especially if you don't have a pesronal opinion of what you need/want and what is worth giving (for money). If you live in Germany, i just can't believe you can't find a good dressage instructor.
You can even manage to attend clinics with Ulla Salzgeber, that would be a dressage rider dream ^_^

But in any case, give us some more info of what you want/need for your riding!

Horses have a great sense of humor...

Thks for your answer Silverada, were you’re from? Are you riding and training and at what level?
I have achieved an S dressage level and I wanted to go higher, at least that was the reason we invested so much money. We had agreement what we want, but at the end the only person with profit - and am talking about a lot of money - was Mr. Gösmeier’! As I heard I wasn’t the only case. Same of his long years customers pay him a lot of money for training, and every few years he sell them a new hors - for couple of 100.000,00 EUR - as long they have a money.
My family said enough.
I would like to have my horse at the trainers stable in Germany, at least for a year or so and to come every second weekend for training and competitions

I’m sharing my experience, and asking for some comment. Maybe someone will be more careful as we were.
When you will stay without everything just because one old guy think he can do whatever he want with no consequences, than please let me know how you will fell.

Best wishes!

Whatever problem this person had with this trainer, it's in extremely poor taste to come on a BB and their very first post is dissing someone's personality and sexuality, which has nothing to do with whether or not they're a good trainer.

Sounds like a personal vendetta to me.

Maybe, but the truth is that what he is. With proof, not just verb "vendetta". It so little honest people in this business; as old seen said Arab and horse dealer can see you trough.
