If someone asked me what discipline I do, what should I say?

Hi,
So I have a young horse and I have been training a lot. When people ask what I do, I kind of say English pleasure or just general English...

I've been focusing a lot on bending/collecting, a nice organized walk/trot... I've done some crossrails with her but I am not doing them right now as I am focusing on really getting to the core of her training first with my mare.

I am interested in doing dressage with her, not certain but it is an idea, but I know that we have to work on framing up, getting more control, and both of our general skills first.

Am I right by saying I do English Pleasure or do you think I am actually doing another discipline? Hahaha sorry if this is a weird question, but it does confuse me sometimes.

God bless, englishaqh (:

Theyre basically the same thing. Just horsemanship is western and hunt seat is english. In the show world its a pattern class judged on how well the rider rides the horse (as in transitions, circles, stops, back, maybe a pivot.) Basically how well the rider rides the horse. Riders need a good horse to do this however because you never want to look out of control of the horse and you want them to look like an absolute pro. Youtube some videos and watch. Its a relatively simple class but i think it fits your description excellently.

@TexasBlaze: Thank you so much. That does make a lot of sense. So hunt seat can be just on the flat? Like I said I'm not working on jumping at the moment. And I don't compete yet, I should have mentioned that as well... it's just kind of that I want to explain and be able to be proud of my discipline.

and @gypsygirl: Yeah that does make sense and thank you for your opinion its just I want to have a description a little bit more specific than that

God bless, englishaqh (:

^ Now now Joe, you really ought to quit changing disciplines like that! Your poor horse must be so confused.
