Not to creep, but the only problem I have with the one you said not to go by, is that I thought the only way to make a naughty horse nice was to ride it out of him...?
Maybe not in some cases though.
Okay back on topic.
Bottom line, horses are going to frustrate you sometime, but eventually I believe you'll find 'the one'... It may or may not be the one you currently have, but there's a horse out there that you can have a great time riding. Just don't get discouraged!
I agree with previous posters, maybe your trainer isn't the best. "Kick 'em harder" is never the right answer IMO.

I agree with Corporal & MyBoyPuck! What kind of a trainer does that!

One thing I have promised myself is to get off a horse whenever I am fearful that I might get hurt. I work on the issue from the ground and make the horse WISH I were in the saddle so they can work less hard. And it works. I can solve almost any problem from the ground.

Thanks for all the help guys! I just had a lesson with my trainer yesterday (not the one who said to kick him she was from 3 years ago and don't ride at that barn anymore) and she said I was way out of practice with my cues (facing, getting her to slow down) like I wasnt releasing right (like I gave her to much rein telling her: GO) so I've been grounded to just trotting again and working on getting her to slow down, then once I can get her to ride nice again their going to throw me up on a demon crowhopping arab... pretty sure they were kidding though

If I were you, I would find a kids horse for lease and just kinda get into riding more with that one before getting back on your harder to control horse.
