My new trainer comes out to my place (I use my neighbor's ring and she also takes lessons from the same trainer). She doesn't ride, but she teaches both me and horse (we are green :) ).
Some trainers are just nuts... I was considering sending mine to one, but then I invited him to work with her in my place. Yes, it was costly, but I saw right away that I'll never send either my horse to his place. Even though he was recommended to me by couple people.
I really recommend to ask trainer if he/she can come out and work with the horse and you could watch the session. You can always see whether it's a good trainer or not in just one session.
