Decisions, Decisions!

Hi guys,

I have a bit of a problem. I am interested in doing two different types of riding:

Jumping and Reining

I am going to teach Janie to do both but I can't decide which to train first. She is really good at basic things and she's ready to move up in her training.
I have started her training in both diciplines. But just simple things like she is jumping cross rails, and she's learning roll backs. But it's just getting to be too much of a hasle. So should I continue training in both or just pick one?

I need help!

you may want to train her in one and once she has got that down, then you may consider doing the other. the sports are different, it may make her frustrated to do both to start with. i've never done any jumping, but if you use leg pressure for this as well, like reining, the leg pressure may mean different things in different sports. not sure?... may want to check into. hope this helps
