Show off your instructers!!!

At my barn, the BO's are our instructers. They are married to each other, and have the CUTEST 8 month old son called Seth.

Their names are Samantha and Peter Tippett.

They are the BEST! I have known and ridden with them for almost five years. Not only are they our instructers, they are also our friends, and my homework helpers lol. Some info about them:

Sam is our second mom,and our dressage instructer. She is an incredable jumper, but doesnt really like it. This is her and Damper:

Peter is our second dad, our farrier, and our jumping instructer. He is really awsome!! This is him with Sargent Pepper:

They are really fun people. No offence to all the adults on this forum, but they are some of those rare cool adults lol. They give us our own shownames like "Children of Corn" and like throwing us in the pool haha.

A lesson with them:

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

Maybe it's just me, but is there a policy about posting pictures of people without their permission? I adore my instructor, but I would never post pictures of her on a forum like this without permission, and honestly, I would never post her website or full name for her privacy. It's her home afterall.

You're right Fowl Play, advertisement is a horrible thing.

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

I don't think advertisement is a horrible thing, I think posting pictures of them and giving all their personal information can be. Anyone who comes to my instructor's barn comes to her house and I think it's reasonable to assume that she is cautious about that. The mom in me is personally terrified of someone sharing my child's first and last name on a public forum like this. That's like saying "hey sex offender, a new kid is at XXX ABC Street. This is when he's out and about."

Maybe I've just heard too many horror stories.

The thing is that most trainers instructors have web sites will all that info on it. So there really is no difference. I can post pictures here of my trainer or I can just put a link to his web site which has pictures of him riding not only my horses but other clients horses. If he is prowed enough to put those pictures on his site then what is the difference.

Okay, so maybe I'm a minority in my thinking here. Sorry.

I understand your thinking and if we where talking about a kid or someone who did not have a business that put this info out there on their own then yes I would agree with you. However in the day of the internet most trainers have web sites and advertise in that manner. The info and pictures are out there. I have given my trainers info out to quite a few people over the years and he has thanked me for that several times. It gets him new clients. Ones he might not have if I had not given out that info and 99% of it was done on the net.

This was my trainer's old page, up until she left in the fall. My gelding was put to sleep around the same time, so I'm no longer riding there, but I'd been at that stable for 12 years, and have some very wonderful memories. That's my horse & me on the left with all the ribbons at the last show I ever took him to.
