    Thanks everyone, this really is exactly what I needed.

    I wont give up 100%, I don't think I'd let myself. Although Craig would rather see me not get on a horse ever again, he worries about me so. I told him I wanted to jump Killer Whales, and he said at least I'd be landing in water.

    By the sounds of it, the haflinger will be out at the barn for at least another week, so maybe later on this next week I'll go out and try grooming him.

    It all depends on how sore I am.

    Thanks everyone for the kind (but firm) words, and the wonderful advice.

I suppose that she thinks everyone should be like her, gutsy and tough.
    You need a new trainer. There are constructive ways to correct a person. I would never dream of calling my students to get on their case for anything. Communication needs to be done one on one, in person and when all of the facts are right in front of you.

    I always tell my students we ALL started at the beginning. Yes, it comes easier to some than others but there is no time limit on learning.

    The haflinger went home last night. I called to let my trainer/barn manager know, and she asked if I was keeping my tack out there. It was already packed up in the car, so needless to say ... No.

    There are several reasons I don't want to stay at that barn, even if I would have kept that horse, I would have moved him shortly after the purchase anyway.
