I prefer flatwork, personally. I'm just not the boldest rider, and I'm more comfortable not jumping. I've jumped before, and I would like to eventually do some hunter hack classes with my horse when he has a solid foundation and the basics + rudimentary collection down pat, but I really have no desire to ride cross country courses. I guess I'm just content to keep my feet (and my horse's, lol) on the ground.
A stubborn horse walks behind you, an impatient one in front of you, but a noble companion walks beside you ~ Unknown
