What's your favorite?

What is your favorite discipline to watch/compete in/or just do for fun?

Personally my favorite is jumping but dressage comes second!

I voted for reining but I like to watch dressage as well. My real favorite is reined cowhorse. That is like the three day eventing of the western world.

I voted dressage. I especially enjoy watching the upper level competition, but Intro level can be like watching paint dry, at times. There's not much horse-related I don't enjoy watching, especially done well; English, western, racing, vaulting or driving. Reining is right up there in my list, dressage with a saddle horn!

I love watching jumping but I love doing dressage. I'm not a jumper I just love watching people who are good at it. I also love watching dressage and competing and just doing it for fun. =)

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Watching dressage is like watching a dance. And riding it--well, just feels so in-sync with your horse! It's Crazy!

I've recently discovered working equitation and I can't get over how disciplined those horses are. I never get bored watching it.

My favorite thing to do is trail ride. Although I imagine if I was just sitting and watching someone else mosey down a quiet trail at twilight, it would be like watching paint dry. I gotta be on the horse.

EVENTING. Hands down. Now, I may be a little biased (he he) but it brings the best of three disciplines together. Foxhunting, showjumping, and dressage combined! It's also the best to compete in. There is truly nothing like it.

Look like a SUPERSTAR, Ride like a FOUR STAR, Win like a ROCKSTAR
