There is nothing better then a good old trustie trail mount. IMO, but I'm not really into showing anymore. We do trail riding, roping, penning and some reining.

I've only done western type trail rides tho my girls would like to pursue barrels once they get to be beter riders....I think my horses are the best lawn mowers we've ever had tho.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Banjo could be a competative swimmer, lol.

Seriously tho banjo would be best suited to trails most likely.
Altho from past experiences he showed very promising signs to be good at cutting or somthing along those lines. He can be good at some games to.....but yea trails would be his thing.
I have never riden him western tho so arnt sure exactly how hed go, but i do think hed suit that to.

Foxy is a shower....as in dressage and show jumping. I havnt done it on him competativly but thats what he was trained to do, hes a slightly hopless games horse, lol.

i think Vega makes a better English horse, mainly because thats what i ride, but quite a few people on here have said that she'd make an awesome western horse too.

Well my mare is going to be a big sport horse. She is quite the looker and is relatively calm about everything with a massive stride. I expect her to be a good 16'3+ hh. She is one of my project horses. She's quite young so its hard to tell just yet what she will enjoy doing but I think hunter/jumpers is going to be the career for her.

My other boy is quite the handsome gent. He is very athletic and is a lot more alert and tends to be quite excited about life. He is quite a stunning horse. I think he's going to be to hot for jumpers but has the presence needed for Hunters so I'm assuming thats the path he'll take. 8)
