Dressage or Jumper?!



OR



I've been noticing more and more my little pony likes jumping more than our dressage schooling...just wanted to share! I was floored with her bravery over some of the fences we took last weekend! Good Pony :)

Wow, she looks amazing going over that jump. But ultimately the decision should be your (and hers). If she does great in both that's awesome!

That fence looks so very dangerous if a person were to not clear it neatly. The thought of the horse's legs going into the gap is just horrifying. But, I am buffaloed by even easy jumps.

Honestly I agree with the eventing part :) I think it's so great to give a horse that kind of variety! Especially if she is so bold over that fence! XC would be a piece of cake for you and her. You'd do very well! Good luck!

Thanks guys! Looks like my best friend and I might take our mares to a horse trial next season and see how we like the eventing atmosphere :)

The rest of this season will have another gymkhana day in a couple weeks - Pony's decent on barrels too!


And our season finale fun show at the end of October :) Super excited for that one, will be our first time competing higher than 2'3!
