    No offense taking, but if you live here and work with english-speaking customers (I assume it's in US, right?) you MUST know english. So misunderstanding due to the lack of language is NOT an excuse and obviously the fault of the trainer. Sorry if it sounds harsh...

    That's ok though... money has been tight and I saved myself $750. :)
    Seems like $ is tight everywhere right now! :roll: I'm super glad you had him stop. I didn't know that he still had a bump there! I NEVER thought it was your imagination. And I'm really really glad that you took my post as intended... an idea.

    Thanks for the warning on communication and I'm glad your riding your boy!

    I don't know if I'm reading your post wrong or something???

    I live in the USA, born and raised CA girl... I know a bit of Spanish because of where I live, you hear it everywhere. I tried taking it in school (also French later on) and was no good at either...

    I believe if I moved to Mexico then I should learn the language, not expect everyone to learn English for me... I should never have hired him in the first place since he couldn't speak English. I thought it wouldn't be a problem because his cousin speaks English, so I thought he could translate for us if we had any issues. But then we could never get ahold of him.

    Nevermind I just read your post again and I see what your saying...

    My comment was more to what Dumas_Girl was saying about the miscommunication. :) In my opinion it's trainer's fault that he tries to communicate without knowing the language. He should either ask for help or ask you to repeat number of times. Sometime it's VERY hard to see whether person is indeed understanding what you are saying (or (s)he just politely nodes the head agreeing with everything). Lol! I run in number of situations like that myself although they were not as unpleasant as yours.

    Anyway, I'm very glad you were lucky to find out what's going on and got out of this unpleasant situation!
