Is the trainer keeping you in the loop? I'd expect updates even just a quick text. I know I have no issues sending a 30 second text.

Ie Good ride today he's starting to really get the neck reining. Although there was a plastic bag that was going to eat him and he couldn't possibly walk past!
Yes, I know exactly what's going on. I've watched him work with my horse before and I go out and take lessons with the trainer and see my horse every weekend. :)

But I would have to add my personal opinion and disagree with your trainer - it shouldn't take four months.
His training will take awhile because he was green to begin with, and he's learning a whole new method of riding style. He was really cowboyed at his old owner before me, and now he's being trained for western pleasure.

Amberley, OP hasn't told what 'issues' the horse has, but has mentioned starting with a whole different system & has mentioned the term 'finished', so I suspect you're expecting a bit much to achieve everything in a week :LOL:
