Yes it is. I have a very personal relationship with my students and clients. DH says I don't have clients I have "Family I work with"...which is kind of true.
Because of that, it's very important I continue to learn to meet their changing needs. I recently took a job with a very high level trainer as her catch rider, just for the experience of working with a top rider in the field to continue my education. It works well. I make money and I get to pick her brain :)
Point is...if you're going to have personal relationships with your clients, it's up to YOU to make sure you're always meeting that riders needs or YOU send THEM to someone that can.
Your trainer is not doing her job.
