I don't even get this ^^ response. Was it supposed to be funny? Didn't come across that way to me.
Can you ride equally well with and without stirrups?
Have you ridden several different horses to the same level?
Do you ride well in those gaits bareback?
Have you done any groundwork?
Answers to these questions could move you up or down on the scale. Maybe if you took some videos of yourself doing these various things, people could give you a more accurate response.
Also, like someone already noted, different people will rate you differently just based on their own internal scale. So if you're submitting a resumé or CV, list your skills individually (but in a short paragraph, not long-winded). That will help them assign an accurate level to you they can appreciate.
