    Yea I agree doing all around stuff I think is much better for their mind and body! Lol. They use different muscles in different disciplines and keeps them in shape. They don't get sour and it keeps things interesting. Yea they will be better at some things then others but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do it. Like everyone said common sense. Don't push your horse to try to something it physically can't do. Have realistic expectations on what they can do and so on.

    I love doing everything my gelding! Halter to Speed, reining, pleasure, trail, jumping dressage, everything!! He loves it is sound and we are even going to mess around with some cows soon! Hehe!

    I think some people get so involved in one sport that they think it will ruin a horse if they do something else with it. Do you do this with your morgan? Some people just are not use to seeing a versatile horse.

    When my Dad was showing all the time, he would very seldom train a horse for only 1 discipline. Most of the owners wanted as many points in any class they could get. He would rope, rein, WP, and halter the same horses. Everyone said that no horse could ever be a winning horse in any particular class unless that was all they did. BUT, Dad's horses almost always won. His halter horses were beefed up from roping and reining, his roping horses were relaxed and calm because he showed them in WP. His WP horses still had natural gaits because they were also shown in reining, and his reining horses never got pattern sour because he roped and did WP on them. I love an all around horse that I can take on the trail one day then go win a show in any discipline I am in the mood for on the next.

    All-around horses are the best! My Arabian did a little bit of everything too, and he was the best horse I've ever owned. We jumped, ran barrels and poles, went on trails, did some dressage, did some eventing (very low level), tried our hand at fox hunting, anything and everything we felt like doing! It's what I'm looking for in my next horse too. Versatility is amazing. I hate being stuck in one discipline. I get burned out and bored just as fast as the horse does! Don't listen to those people. =)
