We always have left the halters on horses at our farm....Broodmares and yearlings sometimes had them on, sometimes didnt. We have never had an issue with anyone hurting themselves. Lesson barn I ride at likes halters off in the stall and out in the field. It is all personal preference.
Some people train their horses with clucks and kisses....other people dont. Again it is personal preference.
If this is the first horse you have had in a while, you might want to consider a one year lease. It will help ease you back into the ownership part and let you know if YOU are ready (not you and your family...YOU) for full term ownership. Taking lessons will also be a good thing right now as others have said.
There are multiple reasons for selling a horse after such a short time. Flip horse. Didnt fit what she wanted after she bought her. Personalities didnt click together....
I am not sure that I agree with her trying to fix your riding unless she saw it as a safety issue. Besides...you are there to look at a horse, not have a riding lesson.
