I've just been a little curious about what else is out there. I've been riding western since I was 3, barrel racing specifically. I was interested in maybe trying something new. Feel free to post some pictures, videos, or info on your sport too. Thanks ya'll!
P.S.- By discipline, no, I am not making this into a battle over english and western. This is about sports- jumping, racing, whatever. ;)
A few years ago I would have said racing, but reining and recently cutting have captured my interest more than any other horse sport. I love all disciplines. All type of riding done truly well is breathtaking, but there's something about the quickness and lightness and finesse and responsiveness of well trained reiners and cutters that is simply awe-inspiring.
Barrel Racing! I LOVE the speed, adrenaline, and teamwork involved! It's NEVER just the horse or the rider, it's always BOTH! That's what makes it so challenging! It's just amazing, IMO. I'll shut up now.
Barrel racing has got to be my favorite. The thought of a horse and rider headed full speed just to turn a can could be boring to most people. It's when the horse and rider both share the will to dig down and run their hearts out is what gets me.
You can make any horse in the world run the barrels. It's the ones that love doing it who are special. Posted via Mobile Device
