Type of Riding and Discipline
Hi there :) I was wondering whag type of disciplines everyone does and whether they compete or not.

Hunter/Jumper and Trail Riding.

I did a judged pleasure ride this year for the first time. We got 5th out of about 30 riders in the novice division.

My horse and I also had our first schooling shows ever this year. We showed three times in beginner equitation. I want to eventually show my horse Kaiba in hunter classes too, but we've got some more work to do before he moves like a hunter (spent most of his life as a trail horse with no real ring training).

My wife did/wants to do again trail, western, and English. Yes she competed.

I do dressage, hunter/jumper, and am currently trying my hand at western! Have shown in dressage, and I'm aiming to try a couple different shows next spring!

And all the above are ridden on my trusty OTTB gelding, believe it or not! :)

I mostly just do schooling (ie. take lessons) in English. I'm not specialized, and they are the typical lessons where you w/t/c and do some jumping. I did my first show at my barn for the Halloween horse show. I got 5th for Flat and 5th for Jumpers. I have no real interest in actually showing, but these barn shows are fun.

A good place to post is the introduction section ;) Welcome other new users.

Oh jeeze. I haven't done any competitions in a long time but I used to barrel race, head, and do halter shows. I'll probably get back into it once I have the right horse.

Dressage for me at the moment, and yes I compete

Hunter/jumpers here! Also on my trusty OTTB. :) He's still learning though... a bit green around the edges!

Even though she has been "sort of" under saddle for about four years now (ie - inconsistent riding mostly!), she is still pretty green so we are just working on basic stuff - but I dream of doing dressage with her. And we love trails. Any shows we have gone to at this point have been strictly for the change to see and experience things... we have competed at an AQHA intro show (yes, she is a draft cross, there were open classes) and showed halter and showmanship. I rode her in a "pole equitation" class (ie jump standards with poles on the ground in a jump class pattern). We dream of winning a neck ribbon, so we're going to do whatever discipline you can get that in. ;) And maybe a LDR.

At this stage of life I'm happy to mosey down the trail. : )
Although, I have to admit some of the new-fangled trail competitions look pretty interesting. Hmmm......
