Ive read through this and from what I've heard about this trainer I'm doubting her ability to train horses or riders and if what she is teaching is correct.

Okay, this kinda ticked me off. You know nothing about her ability to train horses or riders. Please don't assume that because she doesn't know tack and how to use Ace that she's a bad trainer. Not you specifically, everyone reading and posting in this thread. She is not, by any standard. Even her green horses are some of the most well trained horses I have ever met.
Also, can we PLEASE stop this discussion? I asked a simple question- will I still be able to collect my horse- and it turned into a bunch of people telling me that my trainer is misled and I should leave her. Yes, she's misled. No, I'm not going to leave her. In fact, learning this way has HELPED ME learn about tack and the way horses are more than I would because I went out and researched everything about horses. Jeez, it seems like whenever I say anything about riding everyone gangs up on my riding ability and my trainer.
Side note: I'm kinda going through a lot of mental stress right now IRL. I've been getting so stressed that I've gotten random angry streaks and bouts of suicidal depression. This thread hasn't particularly helped as I always thought of riding as the one thing I kind of had RIGHT with life, and apparently I'm wrong. I'm not trying to guilt anyone, and if I am, I apologize, but I would really, really, REALLY love it if we could not talk about my trainer being "subpar" with tack and some other things. Thank you.
Question: Why is it that my horse runs around crazily more when she has a running martingale?
