I would just be straight forward to the instructor. Tell them that you think you could get more out of lessons from this other instructor. If I was an instructor I would just prefer someone tell me there not coming anymore than try to get around hurting there feelings.

Listen, smile and nod. Don't get into gossip or behind the back discussions.

Be true in your praise or admiration of a person's horse or tack, etc.

And remember no matter what - no one is more important than you are. We are all the same. Some have more important jobs but we all breathe the same air.
