Tonight while getting my daughter ready for her lesson, I was talking to the trainer about my daughter's new horse. The trainer asked how it was going and I mentioned that the horse is testing me to see what he can get away with. The trainer then said "well he must be a problem horse because that is what trainers get to sell"......

I was so mad, I walked off to my car while my daughter finished her lesson. I did not know why someone would suggest something like that, especially having not met the horse herself. Citrus is testing me in what sounds like normal for him- he apparently did the same thing with his last owners- does not buck or throw fits, just has to be firmly told what to do- my cues goes all the way from politely ask to demands.

I assume it is not true that trainers just get problem horses.... what would you do in this situation?
