Smile ~ Which Discipline in Riding?

Out of all the horse riding disciplines, which one/s do you do?

And then, which one is your favorite, IF you do more than one.

Well, I tried dressage and enjoyed the discipline of it and the flowing movement. However, I personally am most comfortable with western. If I could I would ride like the native americans way back when, bare back and only your trust to hang on to.

I train english horses, so I jump and do dressage and some cross country. I used to ride western I still do a little bit sometimes. I think my favorite would have to be jumping.

Nice. I have tried dressage, cross country, western, polocrosse and I also do a bit of hacking, but my ultimate favorite is show jumping. The thrill and fun of it is awesome.

Reining and reined cow horse are the to events that I breed for and show. Love the speed and control. There is nothing like having a horse running full out and then slide to a stop with the slightest of cue.

I ride dressage, but I learned to ride on a ranch... and then I moved to jumping, then when I got my own horse I moved to dressage. I think my favourite way of riding is bareback! Because I feel confortable bareback, and I can feel the horse and how she moves.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Bareback is really nice. Especially when they have nice smooth paces.

I ride western and english...in Western I like pleasure, and with english I like dressage.

I also enjoy bareback...probably most.

I currently ride both english and western. The disciplines I ride are dressage, bareback, western pleasure, and I've done a tiny bit of jumping. Does trail riding count, too?

My favorite is dressage since that's what I started with and I really enjoy it. It teaches you a lot and when it all comes together it's the most amazing feeling. I also enjoy barebacking and trail rides a lot.
