I have been recieving some applications already and noticed something similar in all of them.
Thats why I want to inform you furthermore about things I really dont want to see in applications and things I want to see.
First things first, no one of the applications seemed to have read my Terms Of Service completely and in detail.
I know when people have read them, dont ask me how, but I just want to remind you that you should really go into them as I am picky about that and will stricktly follow them.
Second thing I saw are things like this:
*copied the things my friend wants to know
*filled those out without further description
*no further "roleplay" or interessting part set into it that would make me interessted
This makes me feel you just want to have the horses to have them, and it makes me feel they wont be in a good home that means seriouse business with them. I dont want to blame anyone about how seriouse they may take roleplay and/or their being here at Equus, but for me I'd like to look at people with a bit more seriousness. I DO NOT look at picture quality or else but I'd like to look at some story and scrappbook you already can provide. If you dont have anything to show here I often assume you just saw my post on Instagram and swapped over to grab them, thats not my intention and I know not all of you are like this, but I have seen it in the past.
One last thing: If you apply, please DONT apply on "whatever horse you get". Thats in my opinion a bad start for an application because it shows no interesst in any special horse and already tells me you are not REALLY looking for a horse for e.g. competitions or as a lesson horse. You CAN apply for all of them, but then do it for every horse separate to provide me a good application for THIS horse in particular to show me you ARE interessted and you WANT to roleplay with the horse and not JUST WANT the horse.
PLEASE noone should take this personally, I just wanted to give you some advice and tell you how to improve and get better chances in being a future home of my horses.
I know I take some things way to seriouse. Of course everyone can apply as they wish and want, but this is also a short explanation why some people simply just get overlooked or "ignored" or wont get a horse, because they simply are not individual and ordinary, not interessting but only plain applications.
Take this as a little help and to everyone already appplied, I will still look at all Applications and if you want to send me someting roleplay or interessting or whatever I wil also look at that, dont hesitate to take your time to make it a really good and believable application, I NEVER give out my horses in a rush, I take my time and wait for even more people even if I think the right person is found. I will wait and give every horse at least a full month until I think about making desicions, so dont rush into it because "the horse could be gone in the next hour", I never do that kind of thing!
Thanks for the attention, have a nice day!
