What English discipline do you ride?

Choose which discipline you ride the most. :) I hope I didn't forget anything major.

For me it's mainly dressage and I love it. But I also enjoy trail riding and going over tiny jumps.

I'll have to choose all-round, as I'm not good enough to specialise in anything yet. However, I really want to do dressage when I'm better, and eventing just seems like the perfect culmination of all things fun and equestrian

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

I do mainly just pleasure riding... I guess that counts as all-round english riding.

Dressage is what I want to excel in but I do other diciplines with my horses.

I do a little bit of everything. 8)
I really want to get more into dressage though.

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

I do mostly hacking, but would love to do endurance and dressage one day

At the moment, it's primarily just riding around in a ring. But when I "lease/rent", I'd like to be able to do a lot of trails! Since that's the one thing I was never able to do!

My horse is trained in everything English, but mostly dressage. I do dressage and equitation with her. A bit of hunter-jumper too.
