Wow. I'm totally sorry she hasn't called you yet to confirm a time...not to be negative (@ all, and even if your friend, who sounds awesome, BTW, for loaning you all the tack, etc and wanting to train you!) does wind up training you, IF the other trainer calls, you may as well take one lesson with her, as it will give you another perspective from that of the other trainer/friend, and that is always good (to be able to compare one trainer's methods to another's, to see how you respond to each.
What I find amusing (AND A BIT ANNOYING), here everyone has you all worked up about this lesson with this high-brow dressage person, and the person doesn't even have the RESPECT to call you well in advance to schedule a time! Not too professional or classy in my book (& NO AMOUNT of riding skill OR PRETTY TACK can make up for a character flaw that large!!
I'm hoping she (I think you said this was a "she"?) just got busy, but ended up calling you late and apologized! Either way, you'll begin learning dressage from SOMEONE, so your goal will begin being met! :0)
