Trainer Won't contact me

Hey there
I found a new coach in Febuary she's great and she said she said she ws going to let me ride a few of her youngsters and let me board at her barn in August. I have phoned her, emailed her and facebooked her...nothing. When I phoned her yesterday her voice mail was full.
Its the 6th of August, doesn't look like I will be boarding this month. I am just frustrated I really like her and her facilities. I mean if she can't give me lessons, she should tell me correct?
I have gone threw 7 trainers in less than four years.... I didn't think I was a client that was hard to deal with. I have only been dumped by one trainer, infact he stopped contacting me aswell.
Should I persist to try and contact her?
What should I do?

I suppose I could, I am just worried that I am "harrassing" her.
My dad thinks it would be annoying.

If she is that hard to get ahold of, I wouldn't want to board there. What if some emergency happened and you couldn't get ahold of her? How long has this been going on? If its just a few days she may be busy or out of town. If its a consistent problem I would look elsewhere.

I've had an instructor with communication issues and although I like her and her barn elsewhere I chose to board elsewhere as I found her lack of response very unprofessional. Particularly as I am very low maintenance and only contacted her to schedule lessons.

Maybe she's on vacation, hence the full mailbox and her not responding to you.

How long has she been out of communication? I would drive over there if I were you, just to see what's up for my own curiosity, because I am nosy.
