I ride Western/Trail 95% of the time. I might be seen in an English saddle from time to time.

I wish I could do a lot of things. Eventing is one of those things, but as of now Endurance is something I really wish I could do.

I'm way to tall to be a jockey (5'7...lol) but it seems like it would be so awesome but i guess barrel racing might be better!
You could still do track work at 5'7. That or if you have the bottle for it, there is always jumps racing. You don't need to be as small in NH as you do in flat

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

i first identify myself as an eventer, then a fox hunter and show hunter.

i love jumping horses ! its thrilling to me and to my horses. i dont think i would like it as much if my horses didnt, but then again i would never buy a horse unless it loved to jump ! eventing is my favorite because i love cross country. i like dressage a lot too, but not nearly as much as jumping.

Really? That's cool I had always figured that all jockeys were short. Jumps racing looks even better! The only thing that scares me is when a horse falls after a jump, both horse and rider seem to be trampled by anyone behind the jump!

I compete in Eventing. But I do a little bit of everything: Dressage, Jumpers, Hunters.

I'd love to get into Polocrosse, Mounted Games, or maybe Barrel Racing. I've always said that the only people crazier than Eventers were Barrel Racers...Crazy is really something that I strive for.

I do Dressage, but once and awhile I'll do alittle bit of jumping. I wouldn't really wanna do anything else! I love the elegance and look of Dressage. I used to ride western but I didn't like it as much.

I like riding western and am currently teaching my horse to neck rein. If I had the time and money I would like to do endurance riding.

I enjoy riding Western Pleasure/Trail Rides, but I am taking English Lessons to learn how to jump. I also really want to learn barrel racing, but will work on that after I learn to jump...unless I can fit both practices into my weekly schedule! I figure I should do everything that I enjoy...there's no way I could pick just one event!
