Hunter vs. dressage?

I'm trying to decide what discipline I want to do. I really like hunter and dressage. What do you guys prefer?

I rode Dressage for 2 years when I was 11 and moved on to learn to Jump because doing Show Jumping was what I wanted to do. I realized in the end that I loved Equitation and Hunters more then Jumpers. I still compete Jumpers sometimes but I'm defi eyeing those Hunter Derby's.

You really just need to go and take lessons and figure it out for yourself.

They are really different styles. My trainer taught h/j and dressage. She said if you pick one stick with it. I didnt understand till after I rode in my dressage saddle, and took a bunch of dressage lessons. I did a hunter competition and I didnt place too well, because I was so used to riding a dressage seat in my dressage saddle I forgot to sit like a hunter. It takes me a little while to adjust back into my c/c saddle lol.

I prefer CT (combined training) I love eventing, but the xc scares me a little.

A good hunter trainer SHOULD incorporate a lot of dressage into your lessons. The question really is, do you want to jump?
