Question Trouble deciding

So my son is turning 2 this year, and I've been thinking about getting back into competing, but having alot of trouble deciding which direction i want to go in. I have narrowed it down to Dressage and Campdrafting. But i just cant choose between them. Well my main question is, what do you compete in, and what do you like better? Thanks

What is CampDrafting?!

I don't compete.. I simply ride for fun. I'm learning Dressage though but the other one sounds like a blast!!

its an australian sport. you have to cut a cow out of a herd, and then manouvere it around a course around 2 pegs and through a 'gate' it is quite fun, and unpredictable and fair as anyone can win really.

I saw somewhere that a lady that rode dressage loved working cattle on her horses because it put meaning to the training. Just an interesting I thought :)
