I ride my paint English...

Anyway, I agree with the above posters. In my opinion trying new disciplines just helps you become a better rider - and hey, it's fun!

Laugh at them.. seriously.

Registered American Paint Horse, Hunter Under Saddle Stallion:

Another APHA registered Horse, Hunter under saddle Mare:

Paint horse showjumping(not sure if registered):

Registered APHA dressage gelding:

Point is, Paints are pretty versatile, My Appaloosa mare is around 13 years old, trail ridden western her whole life. I got on and have ridden Hunt Seat, Saddle Seat, and Dressage, We have also jumped, vaulted, won western pleasure classes, run barrels and flags fairly competitively, and we still trail ride a lot.

Your moms boyfriend clearly knows nada about horses. Just because a horse is a certain breed doesnt mean they are limited to what they can and cannot do. English western dressage hunter jumper bareback you name it and if a horse is trained properly they can do it. Ignore him and go right ahead and get your butt in an english saddle!

I used to be a western stickler, rode english once and fell in love. I can FEEL my horse more, and maneuver better. Even on trails I prefer english.

Well, come to think of it ... riding in an english saddle and actually riding english are completely different. But even so, I prefer english. It's a lot more challenging that the western discipline I competed in before. They're really the same in some ways - basics and such.

I showed a Paint in dressage in May, and she got 3rd place.. AND she was a former WP horse. They can do it!

Paints rock it in english I have a registered paint gelding Rem and we are currently both being trained for Hunter Jumping, and a little dressage. Paints rock the english show rings and are my favorite to see. I have grown up english, a few weeks ago I rode with my friend on her horse in a western saddle OMG hated it
Once you ride english, a western saddle feels like your sitting on a block of wood on top of the horse, and that stupid horn that's always getting in the way!
Ride english! You can feel your horse better, and I love it trail riding becuase its easier to stay out of your horses way, and the saddles are lighter. You should take this guy to a show and so he can see the paints there stunnin!
<3 paints

This would be like saying any Draft horse or Draft X can't do anything but pull or heavy farm work.
