Well, I wouldn't hold any water to what the trainer said unless the trainer has watched you work with the horse or worked with the horse himself? (S)he can't. So, either that was a general statement made based on how your response came back and was interpreted, or the trainer is socially unskilled ;) .

If it matters to you what the trainer's opinion is, then take opportunities to give specific examples of good and bad things with your horse and be prepared to hear negative criticisms. If it doesn't matter to you, then just don't discuss your horse with him/her again. If asked, just reply "Thanks for asking. We're progressing."

This assumes that the trainer is not/will not be working with you or the new horse; only with your daughter on other horses.
