- - what discipline? (http://www.horseforum.com/horse-riding/what-discipline-120330/)
I've had my horse for 5 years. we've always done the western pleasure and hunter under saddle thing...but never truly excelled at it. I want to find our thing! how do you determine what your horse is best at?
Hmm, try a little of everything. Go to a little cattle sort and see how your horse takes to cows, set up little jumps and jump over them. The best way though is to ask your trainer what your horse is built to do.. and see if they like that.
It's more about enjoying it more than anything. My horse and I are doing "Dressage" but I plan on playing in the Western world with him. Maybe your horse would like to try some endurance. Won't know until you give it a go.
Tried to jump and he had no part of that LOL ran right trough it like it wasnt there. I thought about reigning just because I think it looks fun, but like you said, I wont know if he will do well unless I try it
Yeah just take him to all sorts of clinics and just have fun learning or improving with him! You'll find your spot :)
Reining is a blast. Teaches a horse so many good things. You don't always have to be a top dollar horse and rider team to go have fun either.
But try many different disciplines and see what the connection is between you and your horse in each discipline you try.
