My Level - had to steal this idea ^^

I'm sorry, couldn't resist. I've always considered myself to be good on and with horses, but I'd like outsider opinion! sorry I saw this a few times and I like this idea :)

Riding
-walk trot canter
-jump up to 4'
-been to A circuit Hunter shows
-shown Saddleseat, western, dressage, jumping (hunters and eq)
-been foxhunting, first flight
-Ridden horses from 2-32 years of age
-rode a 2yo warmblood in her first show (after 6 weeks undersaddle)
-never ridden a stallion (my BO doesnt like having stallions in her barn, and when I got the chance to ride a 3yo stallion, I got really sick and couldnt xP )
-taken horses over their first jump
-i am versitile; I've ridden all english disciplines (saddleseat, hunt seat (jumping/undersaddle), dressage), western (I've done lots of pleasure and some local gymkhana events, and I've ridden a reining horse and got to spin!!), I've driven, ground drivin, done bareback and bridleless, EVEN *gulps* saddleseat. Didnt like it much tho
-breezed a racehorse
-helped retrain a fresh off the track TB
-ridden racehorses in training
-I've shown up to Level 1 dressage, but I don't show much dressage so I havent gone any higher
-i've gone trail riding bareback with a halter where the horses galloped most of the time
-I can deal with anything a horse dishes out. I am good about staying on, but big stuff still shakes me up a bit, and sometimes I get shakey. But I usually don't fall. Hard. XD
-Ive started, trained, and finished a horse. Who is now a lesson pony and a child's first pony. :)
Theres more probably..

Ground Stuff
-I've gotten a VERY unwilling horse to load into a trailer... multiple times -.-
-I've shown horses in hand, from weanling to adult
-i've lunged horses
-i've joined up with a lot of horses, usually only when i'm bored or can't catch them tho. I joined up with a chincoteague pony that couldn't be caught. She let me halter her. :)
-hmm i've held some CRAZY beasties
-i've held a horse while they're recieving a shot (D:)
-I've restrained a horse while it was getting put down :(
-I've shaved bad horses xD including foalies
-I've pulled my mare's mane O.O
-I've worked on many many ground problems, personal space issues, and just bad stuff in general.
-I taught my mare to lie down

Care
-I've horse sat multiple times
-I used to work at a barn from 6am to 3pm every day, doing all the heavy, dirty work
-i've given a shot, dewormed, given stitches, wrapped, medicated, and so much more

Sounds like you do have very extensive experience. I think we all have variations in our breadth and depth of knowledge. For example you have experience in a much broader range of disciplines, but as a primarily dressage rider for 12+ years, I feel that I likely have a much more thorough knowledge of that area.

I can't imagine restraining a horse to be put down... though I did have to help forcibly haul a struggling colicking horse to his feet multiple times when he went down and try to keep him moving. That wasn't a pleasant scenario and unfortunately he did pass away after surgery.

That was probably the worst and hardest thing I've ever done. It was not an experience I enjoyed AT ALL. But it had to be done.
