I ride and show everything from reining to eventing to hunters to pleasure. It's a great idea to develop further as a rider.

Silver Panda, I don't see a problem with it. It will be a good opportunity to teach him to extend his gaits and be a more versatile horse.

I was an avid team proper and cutter/Reiner, I then got a job at a dressage barn and started riding there. The dressage made a world of difference to my seat and learned cool things that I now pass through to all my horses. I reccomend it 100% both have there strong suits and learning new things is never a bad thing when it comes to horses!

Absolutely do both! I think you can learn a lot from both. I started my first lessons on jumpers at 5/6 years old, then moved to Saddlebreds and rode saddleseat pleasure and equitation from about 8 until I was in college. I rode western at camps in the summer time and then broke my last horse before the one now in both western and saddleseat. My horse now is broke western.. I'm seriously considering throwing a saddleseat saddle on her and teaching her both. I think it's great to learn different disciplines and techniques!!! Makes for a more rounded horseman.. and horse.
