This is the sort of post that puzzles me.
Why would you ask after you sent your mare, not before? If you are not sure what to expect from a trainer, you could discuss it with them, initially, or now, rather than wait til you collect the animal.
The forum also has rules about defamation of character, to protect professionals in the industry, which would make it difficult for people to give an in depth analysis of any trainer's methods.

Ditto !!

I would always recommend you know what to expect from the trainer and how / she interacts with the horses before sending your horse away. What you get shouldn't be a surprise.

I sent my horse to someone recommended by the BSJA that I hadn't known of or met before and I asked to visit to see if he was suitable. The thing that swung it for me was that when he went up to the horses in their stables everyone of them came to the front to say hello to him. A small thing but it clearly showed to me they liked him.

I am glad you are pleased but it could easily have been a different story.
