I just started riding 2 1/2 yrs ago and I have never showed (yet!)...I just got my horse about 5 weeks ago (before her, I rode my trainer's horses), and we are getting the basics down first. But eventually, I would love to train her to jump. And I'd love for us to go to our first show together too! But here's my question...I've read and heard a lot about hunters, jumpers, eventers, etc. but I'm not completely convinced which is best for me.
I'm a beginner jumper with a horse who's going to be a beginner jumper as well. I love jumping but since I am a beginner I like the smaller jumps for now
My trainer is an eventer so I've been doing a lot of dressage work, but honestly it's not my fave thing...neither is stadium jumping really, so the only part of eventing I think I'd enjoy is the cross country portion...
Which do you think is best for me?? If I was a hunter, I wouldn't have to deal with stadium/dressage, but I have heard that the judges critique hunters based on style and all that, which sounds as picky as dressage to me!
So I'm stuck in between hunter/jumper and eventing...give me your advice!
