Well, he thinks helmets are dumb and was picking on me on that (I DO wear one after my fall because my saddle broke) till I told him that if he'll pay my disability I can take it off. This shut him up pretty good - never picked on me since that.
I'd keep looking for really good trainers around. Try to ask people in horse community, or (that's really helpful) farriers or vets if you know any. Some trainers do not advertise their business (that's how it was with this cutting trainer, my farrier told me about him).
