Mounted Games VS Jumping

Here's a topic for your thoughts? Do you like riding in Mounted Games because there fun and exciting. Or, do you prefer the thrill of jumping such as Cross - Country and Showjumping. Which one of these discplines is your favourite and why?

From,

Eventing, of course!

Half because it's so much fun, half because I don't have a games pony either ;D


I also enjoy polocrosse - but I haven't done that in a very long while. :)

Eventing - My horse is way too big for mounted games! However, I do sport on him and enjoy it quite a bit.

Games - At a high level. You don't realise how much training and precision goes into a good games run. I get such a thrill from doing a race really well but it feeling effortless.

My last horse was a bit too big for games and got a bit hot so I had to manage him really carefully - My new horse is only new at games but i'm already having a ball training her and being able to do things at a decent speed again.

Jumping - I can take it or leave it, it's fun, sure - but also much more potential for harm to my horse, and I do love the thrill of doing a race at a flat gallop.

As for me, I think I am now enjoying Mounted Games more. Although I still like jumping but the horse I ride isn't exactly the best of jumpers, she will rush to much towards the fence.
As for Mounted Games, the horse I ride is really fun with games. We play this game called the Cup Race and we even sometimes play the egg and spoon race which is a lot of fun!
