    EVENTERS! He seems elegant enough for dressage, and is also a talented jumped for XC and Showjumping.

    Hunter Jumpers, Dressage, Jumpers, Eventers & XC.
    And my own personal thoughts Competitive trail.

    These are all the same thoughts I had thought. Except XC I thought Comp Trail. That I view as the same in many aspects.
    But.......
    Now with a hard decision to what event to focus on. I see Jumping or dressage...

    Or can we learn both?
    Or would we be using both already?
    By taking tips from both angles?


    Hmm......

    I don't really know anything about eventing (did XC once haha), but I came from the world of jumping into dressage. I also know a good handful of eventers who are focusing on dressage now. My advice (for what it's worth)? Work on your dressage first. Make sure you have adjustability within your horses gaits and between gaits, control, good rhythm, cadence etc. Basically all your basic dressage work (think solid 1st level for your entrance XC level..whichever that would be). If you are working a good 1st level you are working at a higher level than the entry level event dressage test from what I hear (may be incorrect there). Even if you just jump, and not event, it will still help with your jumping for sure. You can learn both at the same time yes, but many of the eventers/jumpers I know (this obviously isn't the rule), wish they had started with the dressage. And now that they are in dressage lessons regularly, they are winning their eventing on the dressage scores alone, sometimes scoring an easy 20% ABOVE the competition.

    Even if you don't go into eventing, and just jumping, your dressage will only help.

    My 2 cents :)

    As far as training I got lucky and my friend introduced me to a multi training farm near me. They offer Dressage to saddle seat, driving and jumping. Well perfect!
    With the holidays coming around I can't afford the lessons. They charge $50 a hour, so I have to wait a little.
    With my wait I have started getting him back into shape and we're back to trotting up and down the fields a few days a week. Hoping By Feburary/March he will be tone and ready to start training.

    I have spoke with the people and they decided I try working Dressage first.
    Tigo your right on the money, they said the same things almost.

    If I start with dressage I can learn a better connection with my horses body and my own from feeling to movement. From there I can excel in any direction we feel comfortable with or advance in Dressage.

    I' am very confident I will enjoy Dressage. It is all new and has always sparked an interest to me for learning. I almost hope I stay with Dressage but I can't close a door I havent opened yet. So only time will tell.

    I do appreciate every bit of information and guidance.

    Sounds like a great plan! And I love how you are doing what your horse is good at, not forcing your horse to do something they aren't :)
