What's Your Favorite Discipline, and Why?

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. ;)

I'm doing english now--- Eventually eventing! I like eventing because it's kind of everything and focuses on the horse and rider's partnership.

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.

If you do barrels and like a thrill try reined cowhorse or ranch horse!
You get to do reining, cutting and my favorite....going down the fence(and roping in the ranch horse)!

But I would like to learn to jump too, I think that would be fun!

Not really a sport but Trail Riding- Because my horse loves it! Personally I could care less about the trees, bugs, and the sun but my Boy loves it! So I get joy out of feeling/watching him!

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 is one I enjoy. But I just LOOOVE pole bending :). And dressage does it for me as well, just the technique and precision. I'm a bit of a perfectionist .

I ride enligsh! ♥
I do jumping, H/J, and hoping to start eventing! I just love the rush and being airborne with your horse. In my opinion - best feeling ever ♥

I have a need for speed.. Barrels and Pole Bending..

I'm very partial to cow horses too.. I've played with team penning, sorting and absolutely love reining and cutting..

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.
