What do you mean by "lightness"?
I am also not sure what you mean when you say 'send away' to a trainer.
I had my filled backed (broke/trained - whatever term you want to use) last year. I am not sure I would say I sent her away though. I did board her at the trainer's barn during her training but I stopped and interacted with the trainer and her on a regular basis.
Did it change her personality? Well she is more respectful but still herself, does that count as a personality change?
