    What to train her for?

    Well time is fast approaching when the snow will begin melting and I can really start working with Amber. But the question that keeps bugging me is what should I train her for, what discipline would she excel most in. I definitely want to try jumping, she might do nice in heavy hunters. But Im personally not only nervous about jumping, Im also a bit tired of it I've been doing it for 15 years. So whats something new and fun I could try with her that she might be good at? She's a 4y/o percheron/tb cross 16.3hh and still growing.

    It all depends on what you'd like to do, and what she's up to. You might try out some Dressage... maybe the more lowkey eventing. What interests you the most? She looks like she'll do just fine as an english horse, but if you wanted to try western you probably could.

    I was thinking eventing but its not something I've ever done, I've never done any dressage what so ever

    I ride dressage primarily and enjoy it quite a bit. Sometimes the shows and whatnot get too high-strung, but if you've got the right attitude it can be a blast. It feels amazing, being so in-tune with your horse's movements. The idea really is to become a unified pair, completely in sync with each other. Learning some dressage can help quite a bit in other disciplines too!

    She is very cute and would probably be good at anything you asked her to do.

    She'll never be good for any training...so you should just sell her to me!!! Just kiddin ya!

    I dunno what she'd be best at, but dang gone, she's perrrty!!
