I'm about to rip out my hair

Uggghh, im so mad. -.- what kind of horse trainer just gives up on a horse after only 2 weeks?....without even trying to ride it?! We basically just paid someone 300 bucks to babysit my horse. N he didnt do a very good job at that, either, considering he got a hurt hoof. Sorry for bad grammar. Rant over. -.-

Why did they send the horse back? If it was due to injury that's a very responsible thing to do... did you get the rest of your money back? Sounds like it... $300 is less than half of what ANY trainer I know charges for 30 days. What did you send the horse in for?

I feel like were missing a few more details. Is your horse that bad? And if it was that bad in the first place then he shouldn't be jumping on with a saddle because its been "two weeks" but more ground work should be done.

Sorry, I had to rant before I picked up my little cousin to take him to the lake so I wouldn't be in a bad mood around him. Anyway, I paid this man $600 to break my gelding. He complained because he was supposedly "wild". He only whinnied around some mares once, and the trainer said that he was proud cut. Then he said that he jigged sideways when he tried to put the saddle on him for the second time.
Then, he kicked out when he tightened the back cinch...He also only did that once. The man made me pick up my horse after only 2 weeks there, and he said that my horse was "very dangerous" and he would not recommend that I mess with him anymore, because he believes that he's proud cut...JUST because he whinnied at some mares the first time that he saw them.
I've had this horse for 4 years and I know for a fact that he's NOT proud cut. I watched him be gelded, because I was right there with the vet when she did it, and she proved to us that she got the glands out. He was around a lot of mares before, and he never showed any signs of being proud cut. He has ground manners. He's never nipped anyone or kicked out. When I mess with him, it's just like leading around a puppy dog that does anything you ask of him.
Then, what pissed me off is this sentence..."I didn't get on him because he was too skittish. I'm not a bronc rider, and I don't mess with skittish horse"....Ok, so uhm...why are you a trainer? I'm sorry that my horse was skittish, but why are you offering your colt starting services if you're not going to break anyone's horse for them?
He also said that he trained horses for George Strait, but I don't think I'll believe that until I have proof, because he doesn't seem very professional at all.
He claimed that when I picked up my horse in 4 weeks, he would be a different horse, because he was going to teach him some manners. Yeah, I don't think so. -.-

Is this the same horse / trainer you posted about before, where he got on him on the first day?

Sounds like he ran out of time, or didn't do anything with your horse and needed an excuse to make some 'quick money' so called him crazy and sent him home. It's a shame, but these things happen- exactly why you check every single reference a trainer gives you and then snoop out a few more.

I do believe that he conned us out of $300, because he barely did any work with him at all . If you're scared or intimidated by horses, then you shouldn't be offering your services as a "trainer". Simple as that.

Yes, it is the same trainer and same horse. I posted at the same time you did, but like I said..I believe he saw a 17 year old girl and decided to con her out of $300. I checked out a lot of references, and he seemed pretty legit. It was a huge disappointment, and very unfair. But that's the horse business. Argh, it makes me so mad!

Did he send him back because he hurt his hoof or because he said the horse was wild & proud cut?

Because he said the horse was wild and proud cut. In fact, I didn't find out about the hurt hoof until later.
