Well I used to do western pleasure/hunter under saddle style riding. Now I trail and arena ride western. But I still make sure my horse knows his body parts, stuff that was neccessarry for showing but not really for trail ride like pivots, side passing, leads, half-passing, speed control, giving to the bit. I don't just get on and go ALL the time :)
There's a lot I'd love to do! Dressage is at the top... It's so beautiful, but too expensive. I'd also love an Arabian endurance horse. The extreme cowboy race... Barrel Racing would be awesome! I think my horse would actually be good at that, he's fast! My arena just isn't proper for it. Reining and cutting are also amazing.
I've attempted SHORT jumps, but my position was horrible... I'd never want to do jumpers, that's too scary for me!
