So. So. So. Many options.
Trainers are the top of the totem poll because without them, the farms just don't seem quite as fun! each discipline group can have multiple trainers at multiple barns. Trainers on EV are expected to be towards the top of their discipline as EV is focused a good deal on the showing aspect of the equestrian world. While not all of our characters show, a good deal do and it would not make sense to have a trainer who had no competition experience.
Trainer's are currently being accepted.
Veterinarians can go either large or small. Our vet clinic works with both so they'll automatically have a place to go. Vets can of course still ride and compete, this member group excludes you from nothing you just get a pretty purple name coloring.
Farriers trim horses feet and work closely with the horse and farm owners to help keep everyone in tip top shape. Farriers, like the veterinarians, are not in any way excluded from owning horses and getting the opportunity to compete. Because they're much needed in the equestrian world they simply get a special name color all to themselves.
Hunter/Jumper group has multiple options for their characters! You can go in the Hunter direction which typically has a bit of a more relaxed pace, easier courses, and it's focused more on the overall look and skill of a horse and rider rather than being quick and getting around a course. The Jumpers are fast paced, bigger heights, and definitely working on being quick around the course without any faults rather than focusing on how they or their horses look doing so.
Dressage, sometimes referred to as dancing with horses, involves no jumping. Often the upper level Dressage horses aren't even quite sure what to do about a fence. This discipline requires lots of time, practice, and carefully developed skills to move up the levels and reach the top of the game.
Eventer by far the most daring group of the English riders, Eventers have three phases to compete through. Dressage, which is slightly easier than the straight Dressage, cross-country, a very fast paced and dangerous part of this sport where riders must jump solid fences, and stadium jumping which is exactly like the showjumpers above. While Eventers must obviously be brave they also must be quite focused on being careful through all three phases to keep their horses sound and go clear without any faults.
Western Pleasure might be a bit slower on the pace but that makes it no less hard. These riders focus much more on their appearance and the appearance of their horses. With horses that are bred and trained for this discipline things can get quite competitive.
Reiners are basically our Western equivalent of Dressage riders. They focus on creating horses that are specially trained for a certain set of movements. These horses are specifically bred for this discipline and are often relatively short and stocky rarely standing over 15.2 hh.
Alternate this group consists of non-equestrians or equestrians who simply do not fit into the member groups above. Please note that the only shows we host are for the specific disciplines listed so there would be no shows posted specifically for any characters in this group. We apologize and if you would like to have something officially added to the site contact a staff member and we will pitch the idea to the rest of the team.
Vacation Mode is for when a member has informed us that they have to take a break due to real life.
