    I would still voice your concerns to her, she has to know. A good coach will always listen and not push you do to do something your not comfortable with. If she still wants you to ride a different horse, before you leave ask, so who do you think I will ride next week? That way, you can plan a bit, and if she says a horse you are really uncomfortable with, tell her you really don't feel comfortable on him and you would like to ride someone else.
    Good luck! We've all had drops in confidence (well, I have at least) and I find the best way to approach it is to keep telling myself, I am a good rider, and I can do it. Say it enough times, and you will notice a difference!

    I'd be peeved. You need to work up. It sounds like she's trying to get you to advance to quickly.
    Talk to her about it for sure. It needs to be made clear that you are not comfortable with this constant switch up. And what are you going to learn if you're constantly focusing on staying on the horse?
    If your trainer cannot do this for you, maybe finding a new trainer would be best. In fact, I honestly believe that.
