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.
This is were my advice comes in handy. Work you butt off people will see it and come to know you as a hard, honest worker. Pick up training jobs where you can you might have to work for free for awhile that's ok. You are talking about the age old problem of every young person entering the work force. "everyone wants experience, I can't get work how can I gain experience". This is not new. Apprenticeship.
experience doesn't mean better.
True experience doesn't always mean better, However a lot of the time it does.
A lot of the time kids can be better because a lot of the time younger people can read a horse better.
Ok...? I don't know that I agree with this. Age doesn't determine what we are good at or not good at. Knowledge and experience would more accurately determine what we are good at.
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.
This is the problem you are having. You asked us to tell you what we think of you as a trainer. You asked for our assumptions based on your web site and what we know about you. (what we know about you is based on what you have said in this Forum) Now, you SEEM to be a little upset with our assumptions and opinions. Sorry, but our assumptions and opinions are ours you can' try to talk us out of them but because they are based on what you have written here it going to be hard to change a persons mind. If you don't like the assumptions and opinions that you have helped us come to then you MIGHT want to look at changing how you present yourself. For example being overly opinionated about things can win you friends, that share your opinion, but can also just as fast turn others off to you because of you opinions. Make sure the hill you are going to die on is worth dieing on.
Well I'm not and I'm trying hard to learn more about everyone's views but defending mine at the same time.
This is Great for you to do. Learn, Learn, Learn, be slow to except what someone says, but be just as slow to throw out what someone says. Weigh everything. Be quick to listen and slow to speak. I can listen to anyone and everyone, some by experience I discard out of hand, new ideas I am slow to discard.
Don't be so quick to speak out against something unless you KNOW it to be wrong. I have found in the training world there are few things I would dismiss as being wrong, are they the best? I think no. But do I speak that no.
Why do you need to defend yourself in the realm of ideas if someone hold a different opinion then you so be it. You make it sound like learning about someone else and their views is a debate to be won or lost. When learning a different view learn it and experiment with it open minded. To say you are learning different views and yet defend your at the same time you are saying "I hear you view my is better" then why try to learn other views you are just going to defend you view. Just forget the other view and don't learn.
