Yes, I know but someone asked what was discussed between the trainer and myself. These were things I wanted her to work on with him.

You said you sent him for 60 days. What does he do now? Did he develop bad habits? Is he "worse" and if so how? IMHO, 60 days is not enough to get through more than 2 of the things on your list even satisfactorily and definitely not if he had problems before hand. I would say in 60 days if your horse is quieter and calmer under saddle and reacting better to softer rein/leg aids at the three gaits then your trainer did their job.

I sent a 4 year old to a trainer for 60 days. He had been saddled but not ridden. I had done alot of ground work with him as well. He came back solid in w/t/c with a good stop on him. He was able to side pass fairly well and was calm. He has never bucked and is not touchy/spooky about the saddling process. I could get on him and go for a trail ride without being to worried that he and I would not return together. My trainer is a rancher so the horse was exposed to roping, herding, gathering and arena work as well. He had even helped hold a calf while doctoring was done. I got back a well started horse with no serious vices that was ready to go forward in whatever discipline I wanted to try.

Horses vary so much that it's very hard to compare what your horse could do in 60 days versus what another horse could do after 60 days.

It's also expecting a lot to give a trainer a list of things you want done in X days and expect it to happen. A horse may need more time, and with the OP's list, if she wasn't going and taking regular lessons on the horse with the trainer, I would expect that the horse may not be doing his turns or something as well as expected.
