Do you prefer a push or pull ride?

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

Pull ride, definitely. I just find it a lot easier to bring back the forward than try to create it!

Definatly a pull ride. Push rides are frustrating to me. It's why I loved my Arabian SO much! He was always a pull ride. LOL

I also have always prefered a horse that is a little "pushy". I would rather check them every now and then than have to keep constant leg pressure. All my horses stay in the gait that I set them in but they do it with energy and they are always ready to go when I ask. I don't like having to ask, then tell, then order to get something done. Lazy horses generally don't make good cow horses anyway.

Pull ride. I don't have patience to support the sloths the entire ride.

Push ride. I'm a huge wimp, so the idea of going fast makes me nervous rather than excited.
