Wow, every horse I've encountered throughout my whole life of being involved in the horse world, has tested me. I thought that was the norm? lol. Heck, my horse Nelson even tests people who get on him for me during days I cannot get out to the barn to ride - is he a problem horse? Not at all, he's a phenominal horse.

All horses test their new handlers/riders, it's normal.

I find alot of people in the Equine World are quite opinionated, it's something you have to get used to. I would of just popped back with a snide comment and smirked and walked away myself - but I have a big mouth on me :)

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 ;) .
Exactly :)
