I have had the French exam "Galop 7" since 2011, which is a requirement to become an instructor, in all three eventing disciplines.
I have helped rehabilitated racehorses, including my own horse. I have helped training young horses, which includes the bases of horse-riding, and then helped taking them on to higher levels. I have helped my instructor with new school horses, after she had asked for my opinion about them, and if I fought they would fit in well.
I have been riding horses since I was 3 years old. I ride mostly English, but I rode Western a few times. I mostly practice dressage and trailing, but also eventing, jumping, and have experience with horse-ball, endurance, mounted games. I am used to riding "difficult" horses, horses with a heavy past. It's actually what I enjoy most, to get through a horse that's being called "difficult", and connect with them. I enjoy horses who offer a challenge at first, horses with whom you have to have a real dialogue, free-spirited horses. I spent all my adolescent years helping around the stables I was riding at, spending entire summers from dawn to dusk there, and I became a very useful part of the team. I have watched over thirty horses for a week while unsupervised, and was the only one caring for the horses.I have often helped, during summers, the instructors with beginners, and have even held a few classes on my own with beginners. I have also taught friends with advanced riding skills
My favourite disciplines are dressage and trailing, though I do enjoy jumping, eventing, and dabbling in many other equestrian disciplines. I also very much enjoy training young horses, and rehabilitating racehorses, whether they be thoroughbreds, standardbreds, or trotters.
I have participated in a few dressage competitions at a low level with my own horse, as part of his rehabilitation. We always had good and decent results: I was not looking to win, but only trying to get the best out of my horse, and it always paid off.
