Getting back to training my horse

I am about to finish up school and start seriously riding my horse again. Allot went on this winter and I haven't ridden at all really. Before winter my horse was progressing nicely. I got her last april. She was an ex-race horse she's 16.2hh and 14 years old. She's very quick to learn and very smart. She has given me some problems this winter with biting on the ground, and being very difficult to handle on the ground. This is probably due to not getting out enough. So I started having her turned out more. I also asked an experienced reining trainer at my barn to lunge her for me for a few weeks while I finished school. I've been checking in with him once a week and she seems to be progressing nicely. What I was worried about is that he's been riding her. I've seen how he rides his horses and they all seem very well trained and well adjusted. The only problem is that I am worried about cross training her. I was training her in dressage and my trainer had been giving me lessons on her. In the past the trainer helping me was lunging her and my trainer got mad and said I shouldn't let him touch my horse (this might be due to her not liking him, or western riding) but I was wondering about the potential consequences of this, and what I can do to get her back to riding english soon. Ill be getting back in touch with my old trainer soon to start lessons again and I hope I haven't made a bad decision.

Im having problems of my own with two of my horses. One newly broken which is more straight forward and one because hes been out on loan which is harder work because like you say you dont know what other people have been doing. I sympathise with you and for the record ive been given some good advice off here as Im sure you will also.

Good luck x
