People whose horses are excelling in all these different disciplines, at what level are you competing?
My mare showed on the Arabian circuit, so it's a bit different, but she competed in reining at the national level. Unfortunately my uncle and aunt took the focus off of showing (dealing more with breeding at the time) for the few years she was in WP training, and she came to me shortly thereafter, but I plan on showing her in both WP and reining on the Arab circuit in the future.
I didn't think the OP was talking about showing more than locally, which is why I pointed out that an adjustable horse that could go through the paces in frame would most likely do well at the local level over a horse with less training but better movement.
