What English/Western Sport would you choose

Western riders, if you were to switch to English tomorrow, which sport would you pursue?

English riders what sport would you take up if you were to trade in your tack?

I ride hunter/jumper. If I were to switch to western riding I would go into reining because I have meet a lot of great horsemen and women who ride reining. Also I love the way reining horses are built.

I'm a rodeo gal, but I love to get out there and fox hunt/hunter jump!

lol, both my mom's horse and mine do western, english, trails, you name it. I never have to choose =) Currently teaching mine to jump, and would be jumping my mom's if he wasn't 27. My mom's horse has taught me barrels though...lol. I think there are downsides to all types of riding when taken to the extreme, which is why i like to do a little bit of everything. My mare is one of those super smart types, so we need to change things up all the time anyways. I really want to learn to drive too one day, maybe i'll teach my mare that after the jumping....

I previously competed western pleasure and barrel racing before I switched to eventing.

I think it would be fun to try cutting.

My passion is dressage.
I would love to try my hand at reining.

I ride English but I think it'd be super fun to hop on a cutter!
