Reining... Cow work. Sometimes I jump, and sometimes I work on showmanship, or western horsemanship. English and western equitation, bareback, and occasionally I ride bridleless. Whatever strikes me at the time haha. My horses do it all though. =) Good luck!
I do a mix of trail riding/road riding, ringwork, groundwork, bareback, and a bit of jumping. This winter I'll be driving and hopefully skijorring! Next summer I'll be showing (still not sure what kinds of classes yet) so Caleb is getting his butt worked off this winter!
I do lots and lots of ground work, teaching my horse manners, respect, trust, little tricks. Stuff like that.
And I do tons of dressage work, its my favorite.
But I always like to have fun days where I just w/t/c jump with only a halter on my horse, its fun and different and always an experience!
I basically kinda hang out with Lacey. Most of the time I spend with her is spent lunging or doing a little riding (I see her everyday but I only have about 45 minutes to spend with her each day). Currently I'm teaching her to jog on the lunge line and undersaddle. Before that, I taught her to neck rein.
My end goal is to have her to a place where I can throw kids/beginners on her and not have to worry about her behavior at all. I'm not sure if we'll ever get there but I think it's a good goal for her especially considering her past and her age. I know she is capable of being completely "deadbroke' as they say (only I'm hoping for broke but still peppy, yknow? Haha) it's just a matter of if she'll agree to play along until she decides it's not so bad. =P
My philosophy is to teach her all the little things she doesn't know because I figure that the more she knows, the more she'll understand the world and the calmer she'll feel she can be.
I am 19, haha, I barley fall into the category. Right now, it's trail ride. I do round pen work on my horse, and groom him everyday I go see him, mess with his feet, things like that. Hopefully start barrels soon.
I also work with my trainers other horses. He lets me handle the colts, fillies, and recently got two new horses, one a paso fino gelding, the other is an unbroke appy.
At my mom's house, we have a 6 month old colt. He is awesome! We have done really awesome gentleing, picking up feet, etc with him. His name is Indy =] I don't know if I will ever be big in rodeos or shows (I want to) but my true heart lies in just taking care of, trail riding, and training horses.
