Shinakonga: i Wanted help With deciding. I Wanted to hear others opinions to make it Easier to decide.

Cacowgirl: thank you :) if it were your decision is that what you would do?
Why ask for opinions then and do what you want to do. I don't call jumping a log on the trail jumping. You made it sound like you want to do real jumping and not goofing around

Jumping a log on a trail is real jumping.

Carpe Diem!

No, obviously its pretend jumping. The log isn't actually there.

Step one: Mount horse. Step two: Stay mounted.

Why don't you just do both? I don't see much of the problem here xD My gaited mare can jump, turn barrels and still rack right on down the trail.
Jack of all trades is most often the fun way to go ;)

Now that you mention it, one of my friends used a racking horse to run barrels. She made a lot of money. He had a hopeless trot, but a nice rack, and he could run barrels well enough to win a lot of local shows.

Carpe Diem!

I received so much flak when I started jumping my Arab when I was a teenager, but she was awesome and she loved it! Do whatever you and your horse are happy and safe doing. And yes, jumping on a trail is actual jumping. If that's not really jumping then all those people out there who "only" jump like 2' aren't actually jumping! Let's not be jumping snobs and exclude the low jumpers! I don't think that Soberanaforever is trying to jump grand prix! Have fun! Jumping any height is fun!

With the proper training and not pushing a horse to its limit and knowing when enough is enough then any horse can do anything. Just think of it this way...if i horse were in its "natural habitat" the wild it would be jumping over things. so therefore it can be trained to do things properly even if it is not common for that breed. Just because something is rare or uncommon doesnt meant that is never existed nor doesnt have to exist.
Give it a go!

Your horse is an extension of you.
