Well when I got my pony she was being used as a pleasure pony, and she had a very sore hind end. But as a rider I wanted a jumper pony, so for me I fixed p her hind end and then tried jumping. I had to train her to jump but now she loves it, I knew what I wanted and I really wanted to be a jumper so I had to go for what I wanted. And what do you know, se turned out to be an amazig jumper, winning tons of first place ribbons.
But try many different disciplines and see what the connection is between you and your horse in each discipline you try.
