Abilities,background and accomplishments

A recent thread had me thinking all day today. We all have different and unique experiences and abilities and when we make a comment or critique to questions asked we do our best to try to give the best advice that we can BASED ON THOSE EXPERIENCES.

Now the problem is that while the words may sound good not always will they be appropiate even if the intentions are well founded. So how does a person know which advice is the best for their situation?

I have come up with this idea.

I am going to list a little questionaire for anyone that wants to to fill in about what experiences abilities and accomplishments they have achieved and I am going to have a Mod stickie it (hopefully) so that if some one is in doubt to what they were advised or if they are too shy to post a question they can look here and select someone to PM that they feel would be the best to help them out.

Now this is not a brag thread but DO list everything of relevence.


Username...


Age (optional)...


Discipline(s) you have had experience in.


Length of time in each discipline



What level of showing for each discipline
Judging
Coaching
Accopmlished




Organizations you have been affiliated with on a administrative level (asked to show knowledge in organization and discipline background)



Other details that will be of use (post anything that will be relevent to the equestrian world)

I would think anything you feel would be useful to anyone that wanted information. You don't have to show to have accomplished something. I don't answer every training question because I either don't have enough experience in that area or possibily the answer is already posted.

Some answers just need support and a general answers so I am not wanting anyone to think you had to be right up there to answer my post but it will help anyone that may be wondering what sort of background is giving them replies.

Some people may not WANT a dressage/jumper specialist to answer their questions and that is fine also.

I wasn't even sure that this thread should neccessarily be strictly in the dressage section either....my mistake.

You may consider adding a few to the list such as:

Vetting( under supervision of a licensed vet)
Breeding( your own or at a breeding facility)

Those are a couple I can think of right off hand since not everyone here is into showing, competing in various events etc.

Sure they can add that to my basic list.

Very good idea! There's quite a broad range of experience and specialties on this forum, so why not take better advantage of it.

Sixxofdiamonds.

General western riding - 12 years
Western Pleasure/Horsemanship - 11 years
AQHA-style Halter - 10 years
Showmanship - 9 years
Reining - 6 years
"NH" style riding (bareback, bridle-less, etc) - 8 years
Barrel racing and other western gaming events- 12 years
Competitive Trail classes- 7 years

I have broken young horses and fine-tuned show horses in western disciplines for the past 7 years. I have broken and trained horses as a regular job for a trail riding company for 2 years.

I am comfortable with advising any of the above things and have competed in local, state and regional levels in all.






Spyder - is that what you are looking for? If there is anything else that you feel I should add or elaborate, please let me know.

I really like the idea of this, because there are certain things that I would like to talk to people about. As I'm sure you know, I have PMed you about dressage riding.

Great idea! I cannot wait to put this all to use!
