I like all types of riding because I enjoy trying new things, and love how horse riding is one sport, but there are several littler sports inside it and so many people can do it, becaue some people like jumping, others like speed and some like the gracefulness of dressage.

Over the course of ~25 or 30 years, I progressed from English and show jumping, to Western and Team Penning/sorting. Now, I just trail ride but I'd like to start training for Extreme Cowboy Racing (ala Craig Cameron).

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

^^ Mmmm...That would be cool!

I have a great mix of thought/ideas..Hah

I love the refined beauty and elegance of certain engish sports like Dressage, and the fast, clocked sports like show jumping..It's a hard thing to decide.

I love to just 'hack out' western without having to worry about your seat or legs or anything, but then again those WP shows look like fun, too.

But out of what I do now, I like trail riding on gaited horses :)

Something I'd like to eventually do is endurance riding.. Wow that'd be fun.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

I've never shown, but have ridden many different disciplines for my enjoyment and challenge. Have been riding for over 30 years. Would love to enter into the beautiful and challenging world of dressage, and hope to take lessons this fall/winter.

I am a trail rider and love the constant changing scenery and the different feeling each ride brings. My horses have to be able to take anything that comes our way with calm, sane reactions. Cross anything I ask them, streams, logs, muddy sections, bridges of a wide variety, all sorts of terrain. I am never a "passenger" but always a rider and the leader to my horses. They trust me to keep us safe and I count on them to be obedient and dependable. It's a great partnership!

Western pleasure and horsemanship. I like patterns for one, and I just enjoy the chillness of it all. :)

Got spurs?

I love all disciplines...I ride western, english, and dressage. I love trail riding, because it gets you and the horse out of a ring, and keeps both of you fresh.

I also have trained horses to ride bridleless...I think it's awesome when horse and rider can work at such a fine tuned level.
