    I never like these types of threads, however some of you have really done an excellent job of turning this one into a very educational discussion.

    Just wanted to add a friendly reminder of the conscientious ettiquette policy and ensure everyone stays on topic.

I don't particularly like hunter and would never ride it for that reason but I also don't go around taking the worst examples and stating they apply to every hunter out there.

    You know while there is a saying that you catch more flies with honey...there is also a saying...SILENCE is golden.


    Void, I just will not comment on your snarky and uneducated slam by painting all dressage riders with the same brush. I did not see ANYTHING resembling that total disrespect aimed at the hunter riders.

    Allison,

    I am so glad you're here, as someone who has terrific cross-discipline experience and perspective, and I would love to hear your thoughts/opinions/experiences on this topic.

    But I do have to defend Void - even as an ex-hunter rider, I found alot of posts on this thread, including the original one, extremely biased and uneducated, if not willfully ignorant, about the goals, purposes and theory behind hunter seat riding. Void may have gone off a little bit, but 1.) it was done with heavy sarcasm (one again, tone doesn't carry throught the internet) and 2.) provoked by a lot of needless hunter bashing.

    So, with the timely reminder from farmpony to "stay on target" (not the original target, the "dressage riders are superior to hunter riders" target, but the target we wrestled the thread to, you know, "let's have a serious, unbiased conversation about the differences between disciplines.") I'd love to hear your contributions.

    It's so true that it's really difficult for a jumper to become a dressage rider. I had my first dressage lesson, in a dressage saddle and I found it really difficult! It was all the easy stuff to, guess I have some work to do!

    Before I switched to dressage entirely I was a jumper rider that also did dressage. Managed to win the yearly trophy in both disciplines on the same horse so it is possible.

    Jumper to dressage is easier than dressage to hunter though, but is possible.

    ^ for me personallyi find it easier to go from dressage to hunter. I had the toughest time coming from hunter to dressage. Lol, but I guess no I have both basics, so it's not so hard anymore.

    For casual riders, I think it IS harder to go from hunter to dressage. I still have-- and see-- those of us who started with jumping, have occasional seat problems. I'm NOT referring to serious riders whose passion and whole life was worked around their horses. I'm referring to those of us who took lessons, had other things we had to do. Anyway, I think it's just a little easier to learn to ride forward, with shorter stirrups, mostly because so much more is left up to the horse. GENERALLY if a horse doesn't take to jumping, you don't jump him. But in dressage, we take them all on.
