I'm a predominantly western rider now, reining, cutting & working cow horses. I'd love to try my hand or seat rather at dressage!

IslandWave, wanna swap horses for a day? :)

I do cutting and barrel racing, but I would love to try Dressage.

If I was a 100% english rider I would switch to reining and barrel racing.
If I was a 100% western rider I would switch to jumping.
..but I ride both disciplines

I ride western and I love running poles, but I would switch to eventing.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

I ride both english and western but more western, I compete in gaming/barrel racing. I'd love to try reining and cutting but english wise I really want to try cross county (except the step up/down jumps freak me out) and plan on trying dressage someday.

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

I ride English (I'm pretty much the standard English gal; jumping, dressage, etc) but would love to take up barrel racing if I could.

It's almost impossible for me to take up barrel racing though because it is so uncommon in my area. It's all saddle seat here!

I ride both english & western, but i know more about western rideing
So if i rode western 100% I would love to learn more about show jumping I only took lessons for 2years but never got to show.
And if i rode english a 100% I would like to barriel race. :)

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

I ride dressage, if I got into western I would probably try cutting and working cow horses. I tried reining when I was younger and although I love dressage, reining just wasn't my cup of tea.
