Growing up(lived in Europe) all they had available near my house was a B&B that offered trail riding and basic flatting lessons(Amazing place). I quickly became a regular there and ended up riding pretty much every horse in the barn (had my favorite mare
Once we moved here, the barn I took lessons at was a Hunter/Jumper facility. I had always wanted to jump so when I moved to that barn, to me it was a dream come true.
Years later after riding actively and have owning tbs I ended up having a gelding with an injury which prevented him from jumping so for a period of 2 years we did dressage.
I find eventing to dangerous and dressage, tho I love it is something I could only stand doing once or twice a week. Jumping is what I have always loved doing
