Pole bending

Team sorting

Least favorite:
Calf roping
Western pleasure

The last two just because I PERSONALY find watching them like watching paint dry.

Isn't this kind of a loaded question?

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Distance riding.
But it's not really a sport. There's not a "contest" for riding 300, 400, 500 and more miles or a time limit for doing it. Just keep the horse(s) sound and do the distance. And not many people who do it. Takes a lot of time to do and most people just can't spend a couple of months or more just riding.

How about we keep this to your favourite discipline - a lot of toes are going to get stepped on otherwise!!!
I couldn't give a least favourite anyway, my favourite is dressage, but all other disciplines involve people that love what they do, they all have a purpose.

Barrel Racing has to be first..Even though I'd rated go on a trail than run a pattern, I have quite a fondness for it since it's the sport I learned first. :p
I can't stand pole bending..personally, just for the fact that it makes me dizzy, but Lucky's a beast at it, so I endure it and hope I can stay seated enough to not fall off xD

I plan to do Mounted Archery in the near future, so I'm sure that'll move to the top of my list since it's my two favourite sports combined.
I also love watching Bulldogging (steer wresting), team roping, calf roping, and broncs. All of which I plan to do.

And though only the fun shows have it, I absolutely LOVE Simon Says. <3 It's the fits class I ever won a ribbon in, even if I was cheated out of first place, lol.
