Dressage. Because nothing captivates me more than riding around in a 20m circle and knowing I've done it just right.

Mines hunter/ jumpers! Love that for a split second, you and the horse are completely airborne! It's a rush! Also, love how classy it is too :)

I love hunter/jumper and dressage the most. I think the only thing I wouldn't do is cross country because it scares me... lol. It's my favorite thing to watch though.

Hunter Over Fences and Jumpers stole my heart <3
You can really fly! One with your horse, throwing your pure trust to him, and knowing he will do the same .... nothing like it!

XCountry ... I was never fond of... Those solid jumps might hurt my sweet boy's wittle feet :3

I've ridden Hunt Seat/Hunters/Jumping, Western, Dressage, Saddleseat, cross country, but my fav is Western Pleasure.....the Devil discipline that gets bashed more times than any other because most people don't understand it or have experience in it. I would LOVE to learn cutting! That is like the ultimate to me....the rider letting the horse just do it's job, without micromanaging it every second of the way. You really can't say that about any other discipline.

But I have to give a shout out to those timed event people....barrels and poles. You guys live and ride by the seat of your pants and I think it's awesome!!!! Nothing cooler than seeing an amazing barrel run...it's an art like no other.

Jumping, because it scares the holy bejesus out of me when I keep going higher and higher.

See? Lost my reins. Scared the bejesus out of me. I'm up to 2'3".

And dressage, because the art of just riding and the advanced movements fascinate me.

I have dabbled in Western Pleasure. I can't (read, won't) do it, at least not on a showmanship level. I would love to learn reining. I am just having piss poor luck in finding a reining teacher (not a reining student trying to teach just to tell me my riding is to advanced for them), in West TN and MS.

Glad to see there are a few of us here who can't make up their minds. ;) I love to ride barrels, but I also love the direct contact and precision of English riding. So I do both! I am blessed to have a couple of horses that really seem to fit their particular disciplines. Oh and I'll never pass up just a good ol' fashion trail ride and I'll also do this in either English or western. It really all depends on what mood strikes me for the day.
