    Gee, JDI, like many, I'm in shock! It's a good kind-of shock as I think you will be good in whatever you pursue!

    I have an ex cutter. WOW! Is he fun! I could see where someone might want to do this! Good luck!

    Haha that's cool, switching disciplines is fun!
    I switched to English late last year, & now I love it. :) I used to ride Western *just pleasure*. But I'm sure whatever you do, you'll do great at it!

    Excellent choice, I must say!
    Reining, cutting, working cow - that's my line of work. :)

    It's amazing watching those horses work. The relationship one builds with their horse while working and training is just unbelievable. These horses just go go go and you never see a cue from the rider.

    And there's nothing that quite excites me like seeing a horse slide on it's butt for 30 feet. :)

    As said before, I would definitely suggest taking some lessons with a trainer at their place to get a feel for it before you jump right in.

    I'm taking my sister to the Red Deer Supreme this coming fall. I don't know if you've heard of it or not, but it's a big reining, working cow, and cutting show - and boy do you see some amazing horses in that ring!

    If you're available (it's a three day event), feel free to come along with us. :)

    If I were you I wouldn't go as extreme as reining or cutting. I would start off small.

    I ride BOTH english and western. Huntseat performance/equitation and saddleseat equitation/performance.

    Its really a lot of fun to do both, but I pick one that I like more [i like western more] for when I feel like riding on a trail or when I feel like just playing around with my horse.

    Although, its a lot of money to do both, the costs of clothes and tack are a LOT!
