Yep, it sure does depend on the trainer and what he or she does.  I send a
green Arab mare down to Fred Emigh in Santa Rosa several years ago.  She
wasn't bad....but I had the $ then, and wanted a professional to put miles
on her,  on the trail and get her comfortable going out on her own.  She
came back to us just wonderful; kid broke and safe, and Fred did a terrific
job.  Fred took her through all sorts of obstacles; along traffic, through
ponds, etc.
