Smile Getting a trainer:P

Background info:
So i think i have gone as far as i can "training" by myself(being 15, it goes as far as the basics). Im saving up my money and ill be going to find the right professional horse trainer to do the rest. I would like to have my horse trained in western pleasure, hunt seat, and showmanship. I fell inlove with this one barn Shiloh Performance Horses provided by
I would have my horse boarded at the other farm they train out of in Holly, MI The windy ridge one. I was thinking i would do two months of pleasure training and one month of showmanship training.

Has anyone ever had experience at this barn or with this trainer?
About what range of time does it take to have a horse trained in pleasure?
What are signs of a bad trainer?

Thanks ahead of time
P.S. What do you think of the barn??

Noone answered because noone knows the place. I checked the price list and WOW! is everything is so cheap down there?? Training is like 3 times more here.

Google actually doesn't give anything bad about the trainer or either place, and both places look good at the websites. Take a lesson or 2 with Casey and visit the facilities couple times to see how they work/treat horses.
