I am quite good at pointing out what I have done wrong in situations with horses. My biggest problem is people want experience yet I can't get experience without being offered a chance. I know it would be an expensive chance to take and there are plenty of more experienced trainers, experience doesn't mean better. A lot of the time kids can be better because a lot of the time younger people can read a horse better. (Not saying I can read a horse better than everyone) but you seem to be assuming that because I'm young and I expressed my opinion that I think I'm better than everyone else.

Well I'm not and I'm trying hard to learn more about everyone's views but defending mine at the same time. Just because I don't like bits doesn't mean I would never user one again if someone asked a horse to be trained that way or if it works better than bitless. Just because I personally don't like something doesn't mean I'll never use it.

I'd never thought about making a bio about myself so I'll definitely do that

Sometimes humor gets lost in the world of text speaking

A lot of the text on your website you can't see :( Also it always seems way less professional when you see something like "Build a free website at Webs.com" at the bottom and yourname.webs.com. You can get your own domain name and hosting for less then $60 for TWO years, just gives a better impression...at least to me

You think KIDS read horses BETTER? Not someone with as much experience as you are old? Yeah, ok.

I can't afford anything at the moment because all my money goes to my horse. Also, I really do think that if a child saw a horse presenting aggressive behaviour, they'd respond quicker. Not saying they'd be able to do much about it though. This is just a thought though, it probably isn't the case.

For some reason I can't load the site but I thought I'd taken the back ground off? Or is it still there?

If you think kids and teens respond faster to horses you must be living in your own world. Do you know how many kids who are oblivious despite having a horse? I cannot tell you how many times I have to tell some of my students "hello!! That horse is clearly pissed off! Why would you do that??"

Learning to read and respond comes from YEARS of observing, working with and training horses. Not age.

You don't need a chance to prove yourself as a trainer. The best trainers start out as working students under an already established professional trainer. That way they are learning to train under the eye of someone else who can help them if a problem arises.
