So, I'm switching from my H/J trainer to a new trainer who does only specifically eventing. The thing is how do I make this transition without offending my trainer. She has offered to get me into eventing but I really don't feel comfortable with that and also feel like me and my horses need a new perspective training wise anyhow. I haven't had lessons in a while with my current trainer and am going to be starting up ASAP with the new one and I don't know how to break the news to her, what do I do just call her up and be like "I know you've been my trainer for like 4 years and all and my friend but I'm training with someone else now..." Sense the sarcasm? I actually think I may have brought this question up a really long time ago but I never ended up finding a trainer I really clicked with but now I have. And if I've asked this question before I couldn't dig it up in old threads...so any input would be great. I'm really just a person who hates confrontation but I don't want to sacrifice what I want to do in terms of riding just to not hurt someone's feelings.
