I like them all.
To be successful in Eventing you have to have very strong fundamentals in Dressage, especially if you venture into USEA Recognized events where you are surrounded by very competative, very prepared competators.
Now on that note, I prefer to go on long hacks in open fields and trails just having fun with my horse and enjoying the surroundings together. Hitting any natural obsticle out there. I love Fox Hunting especially - no feeling like it when you are hand galloping across a field surrounded by other horse/rider teams and hounds and hearing those horns - puts a lump in your throat, makes you feel pumped and ready to rock n roll.
I love Eventing, I love riding those natural obtsicles, not only is it a blast but a rush. Nothing like answering a difficult question as a team.
But the best feeling out of them all - is accomplishing our goals together, as friends, as partners and as an unstoppable team. Whether it be in the dressage ring, stadium ring, CC course or Fox Hunting.
It doesn't matter what I do, so long as it is with my Best Friend, my Super Hero, my Boo. My Nelson.
