I'm mostly talking about for jumping, but for any discipline, do you prefer a push or pull ride? I don't mean a horse that you are kicking every step, or a horse that bolts around the ring. But do you prefer a horse that needs a solid, strong leg and perhaps tries to add strides in a course, or goes too slow. OR, do you want a horse that likes to move fast, and possibly likes to try to remove strides in a course?
Personally, I have strong legs and NO upper body, so I'm all for the push ride. I feel much more in control, and feel like I have time to plan and count out my strides
