Then if what you are saying is really going on....then your trainer has an ego problem and you need to switch, and find a trainer who discusses their opinion with you before just doing things because they want to.
My trainer is like that....been with him for 15 years. We talk almost on a daily basis because we are also extremely good friends (as a matter of fact, I just got off the phone with him!). If he thinks my horses could benefit from a supplement, he'll call me and we'll talk. If he's going to change feed, farrier or vet...he lets me know. He and I have the same thoughts on feed, so there is no conflict. We maintain an open dialogue constantly. We always try and plan out the shows we go to. Because we show AQHA and travel out of state, we pick and choose the best shows. He puts it out there to all his clients. If he has 1 client who wants to go to an out of state show, he'll do it....but iit's not as cost effective for the client for him to haul one horse to a show, so that rarely happens. I decide what shows I want to do....not him.
