Saddleseat! It's a very larger rider-friendly discipline.

I just wish we had more CTR's closer. Closest one is Robbers Route in Oklahoma, I did it... wow... 30 yrs ago! They had a big hill close to the camp ground that everyone just dreaded....Before the ride, I had not heard about the hill, and my friend and I were riding around checking out the scenery, double, bareback... road down this hill, then back up!! We didn't think it was too bad, whereas some people didn't want to do it single, with a saddle.... Don't think I'd try it bareback now though! Lol

Just plain old trail riding for this plain old BBW. The trails at Prague have some nice "obstacles" like really loud wooden bridges, stairs, teeter totters. Really enjoyed those, although waiting for everyone to try to coax their recalcatrant cayuses across got pretty old after a while...even Dancer got impatient!

My addictions... speed racking horses is one for sure! I love racking horses, and watching them get up and go is amazing. I would love to have one of my own, or at least work for a racking horse farm and learn more about it; my boy only gets up to about eighteen miles an hour before he breaks into a canter. Then I really want to do endurance once I'm in shape, and I think that would be my addiction. I also love to trail ride!

Trail riding! Mostly at a walk, but deep down, I love to canter! I sneak it in once in a while when I can (most of the people I ride with don't seem to have a desire to canter for some reason, silly people!)

I have never seen a racking horse in person but LOVE watching them on You-tube! They look SO awesome! I did end up with a Fox Trotter but when we speed up she does this weird pacy-canter thing. But yeah, I secretly would love to own a speed racking horse!

I love jumping! Just hunters for now, but jumpers hopefully next show season!!

I'm also currently obsessed with growing Dancers tail out during the winter and my newly discovered flying lead changes!
Oh and shows. :)

I have several addictions. I love jumping/eventing and dressage equally.....well.....maybe jumping/XC more.

However, I am equally addicted to traveling and scuba diving. Especially when kind people are waiting after a hard night dive.

Oh, they're gorgeous horses. I live in a place where there's mainly trail riders, and there are a boatload of walkers and racking horses, and speed rackers are pretty popular. Youtube is great for seeing these guys too; you get to see some amazingly fast ones!

It's funny too, because I've not met a Fox Trotter yet. I'd love to though; I've always wanted to.
