I'm super stuck!

I'm stuck between barrel racing and jumping. I've never ridden english, and barrel racing would be more my style, but they both look like sooo much fun! Opinions please?

I love barrels, so I would say barrels :)

Whatever is more fun for you and your horse :)

I love the barrels, but I like to take my horse out and jump bareback! It's a whole lot of fun, it exercises my legs, and takes my horse's mind off of the pattern! Win win situation! Why not do both?

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

Agreed, both!

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I do both, If you do jumpers, barrel and jumping training can help both sports as you need to be able to change speed and turn tightly to shave off time.
