I've recently bought a green OTTB, and can't decide if I want to send her for a month to a dressage trainer or a hunter/jumper trainer. Gracie totally has hunter movement and that's my goal for her to become, but at the same time I'm not sure if a month of intense dressage training would be a better foundation. One of my good friends recommended that I send her to the hunter/jumper trainer and then take dressage lessons on the side when she comes back, and I'm leaning towards that right now. Not only, (like I just said) do I want Gracie to become a hunter, but my barn is primarily an eventing barn so we constantly go to dressage barns -- but never a hunter jumper place.
So, opinions! What would you do?
