I have a similar problem. My current trainer teaches hunt seat and jumping, and she's an incredible teacher. I would never go to anyone else for hunt seat. But I also want to get into dressage really really bad, and I know a good trainer for it. My hunter trainer would be extremely offended if I took lessons from someone else, though. It just wouldn't be a good situation.
I don't really know what to tell you. Maybe you could explain to her that she's the only trainer you'd want for the discipline she teaches, but you want to expand your skills.
