I LOVE jumping, reining, and mounted shooting (just for fun) but can't decide if I want to stick with, western or english. I know I won't be competing at "A" circuit shows or national shows so I'm not terribly concerned with buying a horse that is specifically bred for whatever.
I train all of my horses with the basics of dressage which is essential for balance and movement in any discipline. Would anyone think I'm crazy if I were to train a horse for jumping but occasionally did mounted shooting with my club. (there is one lady who does it on here OTTB that is a 2nd level dressage horse and she's pretty dang good at it!) I'm going to be buying a new horse next spring and would like to have a general idea of how I'm going to start/break him...I'm very frustrated..has anyone else had issues with sticking to one discipline? The problem is I like doing it all but obviously can't afford it all. I get bored easily and was wondering if anyone had some tips to keep me interested in what I'm doing? Just very frustrated right now, any tips, advice, stories, non-mean/judgemental comments would be very helpful.
