I love jumping and eventing. My horses and I sometimes get bored with flatwork/dressage. Swoop is amazing at dressage but if we do too much with no jumping he'll just stop in the middle of the ring with me on him and pout! Lol I would much rather do jumping on Petie just bc his gaits are not that smoothe. But I loved doind dressage on my old dressage mare, she was shown up to GP

To me, jumping is fun. But dressage really shows the horse's development and improvement. I like finally nailing a trot half-pass for the first time and then thinking back to when I first introduced it to my horse and thought "he will never get this". And after practice, practice, practice he does!

Now don't get me wrong, I'd pick a jumper show over a dressage show anyday! And I'd pick an event over ANYTHING!

Well this is a hard question...
Lets see, I like to do Dressage, and I have done some long distance trail riding and that is fun too. But I think that riding a 3 day cross country course is a lot of fun too.
But, the best time is always when your spending it with your horse doing whatever makes you both smile...lol
I guess my favorite is Dressage because when your riding the test it really feels wonderful to become one with your horse and the movements you perform!
Good topiic.
