    What level

    Hey, I am kind of copying someone because I am curious. So what level am I?
    I can ride a buck, bolt, and stop at a jump. I can jump up to 2' 6". I have ridden horses that were broken a month before. Of course do W-T-C and have shown dressage through first level. Have been riding for 7 years. Have competed in around 30ish shows probably more. Do saddleseat, hunter jumper, dressage, and western.
    What level would you say I am?
    Thanks,
    SB11

    Lots of people would classify you differently depending on why they want to know your level. It's a subjective assessment, not objective. What level do you think you are? Who are you comparing yourself to? What do you hope to qualify for (a job, a special training class, etc.)?

    In France they have "Gallop" certificates. They go up to Gallop 7. For each level you have to test on various subjects both on paper and in the saddle. When there's a system like this it's very easy to express your level; however, with just a list of accomplishments like you've given, it's much harder.

    That being said, you're a heck of a lot more experienced than I am. Congrats!

    Its so hard to answer these threads. I would say advanced intermediate? But it depends on how well you are doing those things . Certainly, you are braver than I am. But, I wouldn't ask anyone to state my level becuase I wouldn't want to force them to hurt my feelings.

    That is a very good point, I was very wary going into this understanding I may hear something I don't want to though I was just wondering what people were thinking and how people felt about certain attributes.
