    It sounds like you're the one doing all the calling. I'd just stop calling and not say anything. All too often, trying to do it upfront just ends up with the person feeling cofronted and attacked. I would just stop calling her and call someone else.

    I think being honest is the way to go. You pay for this service and if you do not get what you expect or are not happy with the service you get you should def. Tell her that and give her some feedback, maybe she thinks about it and you would help other or future students...

    I would leave.

    I have left barns (purposefully) twice. First time I sent an email saying I'd like to practice more with my riding and I couldn't with her since she had no indoor. She said okay and I could come back anytime so I don't think any feelings were hurt or bridges were burned.

    Second time my feelings were very hurt when I left so I just left with no notice.

    Good luck and I hope you find a better barn soon. Remember that if you are not happy you are the customer and have the right to go to wherever you feel your money is being spent well.

    Imo if your trainer hasn't called you in weeks that would be a strong sign that your trainer isn't interested in you as a student. If I were in your position I would just stop calling. If she does call and ask what happened just tell her your schedule fits better with the New instructor. After all she obviously doesn't have time for you if its been weeks since you squeezed a lesson in.

    Imo...the instructor won't question it.
