I ride western doing trails, games, and I'm hoping to do some penning and heading if the horse I buy is up to that as well.(: I'm currently retraining ST though (if I'd ever get the time to go out around my work schedule ;; ) and then we'll be showing games this coming season again. She was trot/canter barrels and poles with times only 7 seconds off winning. So when she's coordinated enough and actually running I imagine her in the money :p Posted via Mobile Device
I just ride for fun, both western and english. My horse was an eventer before I got him, so I was thinking about getting him back into dressage. I think he would really enjoy having something to do instead of always just trudging around. I know NOTHING about dressage though, so it will be interesting to say the least! I used to jump when I was little, but I can't anymore. I have bad knees that would pack up and move out if I tried anything funny with them.
Currently just starting competing in barrel racing. Gone to 2 jackpots, so very new still! I also pack up and go on pack trips to the mountains with my husband.
In the past I headed and heeled competitively for a couple years, have done cutting and took 2 years and did dressage and jumping! I love to learn and believe everyone you meet has something to teach you. Posted via Mobile Device
The reason why I ask if people compete and what discipline is because reading some of these threads is interesting. Especially how a lot say people are not as open to plus size riders and tend to say negative things about them. An observation to me is that if a person wants to ride they should say to hell with what others think. And should not let their size stop them :) I have never once been limited by my size when it comes to riding. I compete in barrels in organizations (not just fun shows) and yes I get dirty looks for my size but they put those looks away after we run. Don't let your dreams or goals be stopped by others there is always a loop hole or way around something to reach your end goal :) Posted via Mobile Device
Currently we're doing Hunter/Jumpers. We haven't shown since last spring, but do do local schooling shows just for fun! Next spring we're going to start schooling beginner novice XC, and maybe compete in a beginner novice event in the next year or 2!
